Fully documented original 1987 Buick Regal Limited Turbo, 1 of only 1,035 built and 1 of only a handful with this unique option combination. North Carolina car with ultra rare option combination of Heavy Pad Landau roof, T-Tops, coach lamps, cornering lights, 6-way power drivers sear, reclining passenger seat, and factory trunk kit to name a few. Fully loaded car with over $6K in options. Comes with original window sticker, bill of sale, stock ID tag, and other sale and factory literature come with the car. Car was manufactured in September of 1986 (1987 Build Year) and was sold off the dealer showroom in May of 1987 with a mere 357 miles on the odometer from Cardinal Chevrolet-Buick-Cadillac in Reidsville, North Carolina. The car remained in North Carolina until 2012 when I purchased it.
The car was re-painted once which occurred in 2011 according to the previous owner. At that time the car was disassembled and new fiberglass bumper fillers were installed along with new headlights and bulbs all the way around. The following new emblems were also installed: 3.8 Turbo Hood, Buick grill, regal rear quarter panel emblems, decklid 3.8 Turbo emblem, and deck lid Buick emblem. The car contains all the original trim, glass, moldings, landau top, bezels, front grill, bumpers, and sheet metal. Very little has been replaced on the car. Clean title and no accident history or issues. Car is in great shape and a fine example of the way it rolled off the factory showroom. No issues and very little surface rust on the frame / bumper supports. Extremely solid car that has been well kept and garage maintained with the original as new condition landau roof!
Original numbers matching car with the following mechanical upgrades: Rebuilt 200-r4 transmission and converter with shift kit, upgraded rear end with limited slip differential, rebuilt factory turbo, and recent tune-up including AC Delco plugs, AC O2 sensor, fuel filter, plug wires, serpentine belt, PCV valve, rear main seal, intercooler/radiator flush, coil pack replaced and TPS adjustment. The engine has solid compression and holds 20+ PSI of oil pressure at idle hot and 60 PSI cold. The previous owner could not verify if the engine was ever rebuilt but it pulls strong with zero hesitation and it's the best running stock turbo regal I've ever owned. No smoke at start-up or while driving and no issues with the turbo seals. Also maintains the original factory mass air flow sensor. The AC works and blows cold but was converted at some point to 134. Appears to be the original power master and works fine with recent fluid change.
The only aftermarket upgrades to the car are: Racetronix high volume fuel pump (340) and new wiring on factory hanger, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, 160 degree t-stat, boost control valve (Set at 15lbs), 3.5 inch mild steel down pipe, Hooker 2.5 inch exhaust (Sounds great), cold air intake with K&N filter, pillar mounted boost gauge, oil and temp gauges in overhead t-top panel.
The interior is all original and contains the factory plush limited carpet, GM original carpet savers, and seats. No rips or tears in the upholstery but does contain a few blemishes from previous owners. Fully working: 6-way power seat, reclining passenger seat, illuminated visor, rear window defog, cruise control, power windows/door locks, original UM6 radio with factory speakers and concert sound.
The car is great for cruise nights and sunny drives or a commuter as its well sorted out and very reliable. Has been well maintained and is mechanically sound as everything works on the car. Needs nothing mechanically other then power antennae replacement kit.
I am Buick guy and would love to keep it but family priorities and expanding family force sale. Destined to be a collector considering the rarity and is certain to appreciate over time.
Car is sold as is without warranty. $1000 deposit required within 48 hours and balance within 5 days. Car is also for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early.
