VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: 

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.

GM laying off 510 amidst slow Cadillac, small car sales

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 13:01:00 EST

General Motors is laying off about 510 workers from two factories beginning in January, and it could be months before the automaker needs some of that latent capacity to come back on line. A combination of poor sales and high dealer inventories are prompting the cutbacks, according to Automotive News.
The largest changes come at GM's Lansing Grand River plant, where the Cadillac ATS and CTS are made. An entire shift of about 350 workers is being laid off, but the automaker hopes to find positions for some of them at other nearby factories. The decision leaves just a single shift building vehicles there. According to Automotive News, the move is partially spurred by Johan de Nysschen's plan to make Cadillac a more exclusive brand.
The lost shift will likely return for production of the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro at the plant, according to the report, but GM isn't saying when that will be. A previous announcement from the Canadian Auto Workers union indicated that the Oshawa, Ontario, factory would lose the coupe in late 2015 or early 2016.

eBay Find of the Day: 1981 DeLorean with 570-hp twin-turbo Buick V6 [w/videos]

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 17:29:00 EST

"Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?" So asked one Marty McFly of his mentor Dr. Emmett Brown, who replied: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
Doc Brown was right, of course: with an exotic mid-engine layout, gullwing doors and stainless steel body, the DeLorean DMC-12 sure looked the part. It just needed a little more juice. Well this one might not have 1.21 gigawatts of time-bending power - that'd be more than one and a half million horsepower - but it does have more than the 150 hp in the the standard 2.8-liter V6.
That's because this particular DeLorean has had its stock Peugeot Renault Volvo engine swapped out for a Buick-sourced, all-aluminum, 4.3-liter V6 from the Grand National. Dutteiller Performance didn't leave the engine in stock form, either: while they were swapping it out, they added a pair of turbochargers, new pistons, crank, cams and much, much more.

GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:30:00 EST

It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."
