Very Nice Condition
OWNER HISTORY: The current owner purchased this very nice, low mileage Grand National in 2001 with only 22,129 miles. Thirteen years later it only has 22,221 miles! It has been driven less than 100 miles during his ownership. He has a collection of late model Muscle Cars and this one is being sold to make room for some new acquisitions.
Four identical 1987 Grand Nationals sold at the Auctions America Auburn auction in May. The average sales price (without buyer’s premium) was over $25,000! This one is as nice as any of those four and can be purchased for less. And… it has an adjustable, variable rate fuel pressure regulator installed (for even more power!) along with some aftermarket performance goodies included but not installed.
Although this GN sat virtually untouched for 13 years, we have recently inspected and serviced it as needed, and other than needing some new rubber, it is ready to drive away.
MARQUE HISTORY: The 1985-1987 Buick Regal Grand National represent Buick’s brief but glorious mid-‘80s return to late-‘60s muscle. The Grand National started with a mid-size Buick Regal. Initially it differed mostly in suspension tuning and full blackout exterior, but further development, including more precise sequential fuel injection, ultimately produced 245 horsepower! Upgrades for 1987 included a sports steering wheel, upgraded instrument package with a tachometer and a boost gauge. The Grand National was faster than almost all cars built in 1987.

the numbers and RPO codes match as best as we can determine. It appears to be a low mileage original
