Buick Grand National for Sale
Only car enthusiasts who actually know the history of the car industry drive Buicks. One of the best cars ever created is undoubtedly the Buick Grand National. Back in the day, car enthusiasts used to translate the word “performance” to V8, and no car enthusiast used to prefer V6 over V8. But in 1976, Buick came up with a V6 engine car which is known as 76 Indy Pace Car, and this car was the genesis of what can be found today as Buick Grand National for sale.
The First Buick Grand National: In 1982 Buick launched 215 1982 Regals Grand Nationals after winning the 1981 and 1982 NASCAR Grand National Series. This model came with a new front air-dam, blacked-out rocker panels and wheel openings, two-tone grey paint, red pinstriping, a new front outside splitter, and two black leather seats. This car featured a 4.1-liter V6 that offered 125 hp.
The First Turbocharged Grand National: Buick didn’t launch any Grand National in 1983 because the company was still working on the next generation of the GN. In 1984 Buick launched an even more appealing black paint Grand National that came with the signature look of the GN line. It came with a turbocharged 3.8 liter V-6 that offered 300 pound-feet of torque and 200 hp.
Intercooler for the Grand National: In 1986 GM added an intercooler to the Buick Grand National. This addition not only made the Grand National a muscular car but also made it one of the most powerful sports cars of that era. Later in 1987, GM (General Motors) made a few upgrades in the engine of the 1986 model that allowed the Buick Grand National to offer 245 hp and 355 pound-feet of torque.
The Last and the Best Grand National: In 1987 GM launched its last Grand National, and it's known as a performance icon and one of the greatest cars of all times. In 1987 only 547 Grand Nationals were manufactured, and the fact of the matter is that this model took the performance definition to another level. Moreover, it was also the fastest production car in 1987 by Buick and also in the whole industry that money could buy. That’s why many car enthusiasts still search for 1987 Buick Grand National for sale as it has become a collector’s item.
The official spec sheet of this Buick car is also impressive, and Buick Grand National had 276 horsepower and 360-pound feet of torque. The 1987 Grand National for sale today in good condition can still achieve 60 miles per hour of speed in only 5.7 seconds. Additionally, it covers one-fourth of a mile in just 14 seconds which, even in the modern-day, is pretty impressive.
In order to make it even more special, the company decided to give a special jacket to each original buyer of the 1987 Buick Grand National. It was crafted by Molly Designs, the race team provider from Irvine, California, and the jacket had the embroidered GNX logo on the back as well as on the front.
