HIGHLIGHTS: Super clean 50k actual mile 1987 Buick Grand National. True southern car its entire life. All original drivetrain, fresh paint, new interior, ice cold A/C, ready to be enjoyed!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, with all of the proper emblems and trim still in place and in good condition. The recipient of a professional paint job in 2021, this Grand National has to be straight because as seasoned car guys know, black paint doesn't hide any imperfections. Take a close look at the underside and you'll quickly agree that this car has spent zero time up north. With just over 50,000 miles on the odometer, the body on this car is in remarkable condition for a car of this age.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Because the fresh paint hasn't been on it very long, there is a distinct lack of dings, dents, and other body damage. Black paint shows all body flaws, and this car is truly in great condition.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Pop open the door and glance inside and you'll immediately feel like you are back in the showroom in 1987. Slide the seat back, adjust the tilt steering column to the correct height, and you don't even have to start the car to feel like you're going for a ride! Not only did this car receive fresh paint, but inside you'll find brand new seat covers, door panels, carpet and headliner. The interior is as complete as it is clean, with minimal wear and brand new seat material. The only noteworthy item is that the car is still equipped with the original dash pad that does show a few typical cracks.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits the original 3.8-liter turbocharged V6. The engine has been properly maintained, and runs like it should while the 4-speed TH200-4R transmission operates smoothly. This is a fun, fast, and unique little car! The turbo-V6 was not only innovative for the time period, but made for a serious street car. Just about anyone who remembers when these were new will tell you what street beasts they were! Add in ice cold a/c, power brakes and power steering and you've got a collectable car that would be great for the open road as a daily driver or right at home in a collection.
This car drives straight, shifts smoothly, and has the all-around feel of a well-maintained car. This is a turn-key vehicle ready to hit the asphalt!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The menacing look, fresh paint, showing it off to all your friends… there's so much you'll love about it!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you loathe anything newer than 1973, this is not the car for you. If you live and die by V8s, but don't have an open mind, this car is also not for you. Other than that, there's not much bad to say about it!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? This car is turn-key as it sits, and needs nothing to be enjoyed as is. The only item not working is the digital tachometer.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a classic 1980s American Icon! This is the perfect statement vehicle for anyone that came of age in the 1980s, and one of the most sinister looking unmodified cars out there. The buyer looking for this Grand National wants a car that is nice enough to show off, but not so nice that they are afraid to hit the streets in it every chance that they get.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
