With the value of the turbo Buicks skyrocketing lately, a car like this 1985 Buick Grand National that's so complete and so affordably priced is the stealthy black machine that you know is also a red-hot commodity.
You already know the legend. General Motors had a short run of Buick coupes that looked mean and had the performance to back it all up. Its Regal siblings have a great creased appearance that instantly conveys a feeling of premium. But where they liked to use chrome to make a statement, this one reserves the brightwork only for the wheel trim. That sends a very different message. The blacked-out trim, the bulging hood, and the subtle ducktail spoiler all give this car a look that demands respect. And this example has a great feeling of completeness, right down to the plastic aprons surrounding the metal bumpers (an often-overlooked piece.) Even the upgrade to the cool GNX-style lattice wheels feels right on this blackout Buick.
The correct black and gray bucket seats up front do a terrific job of balancing out the Buick's comfortable image with extra bolstering for the Grand National's added performance. Plus, the good condition of these original-style seats, door panels, and headliner lets you know this has been treated with respect. As a true high-end Buick, this comes loaded with all the best features. It includes power windows, power locks, power steering, and provisions for factory air conditioning. And the stereo has been upgraded to a more modern AM/FM/CD stereo unit with an aux input and Bluetooth. The three-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column. It has a design to give you an excellent view of the factory gauges that includes a cool horizontal tach on this speedy machine.
What really makes this one so special is what's under the hood. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V6 was given a turbocharger, and it instantly turned this Buick into a Corvette contender. And because the motor is so essential, we have records of significant investments in maintenance within the last few years. Buick upgraded the suspension for performance duty with a thick sway bar in front and one in the rear. You also have power brakes w/discs up front and wide Kumho performance tires. But remember, the four-speed automatic transmission is not only there for quick shifting action but also for overdrive comfort. So you'll get just as much pleasure out of this one chewing up the asphalt as you will cruising under the midnight neon.
You're looking at one of the most desirable machines from the 1980s. And you already know this price is low for these desirable Grand Nationals. So this is a case of call us today, or you might regret it tomorrow!
