Morrisville, Pennsylvania, United States

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. 

Located in Bucks County PA, 19067.  Will ship at buyers expense.

Opel Insignia OPC getting facelift. Will the Buick Regal GS see it, too?

Tue, 07 Aug 2012 16:31:00 EST

We've seen spy shots of the base Opel Insignia wearing facelifted front and rear ends, and now it appears that the more potent OPC version will be benefitting from a nip/tuck, as well.
The front bumper has been redesigned, incorporating new air intakes - toned-down versions of the model's signature fangs - as well as a new grille. Out back, there will be minimal changes to the overall fascia, most likely stuff like slightly redesigned taillamps, and inside, these spy shots show a larger navigation/infotainment screen sitting atop the center console.
This is all well and good for the Insignia, but we're wondering how these changes will impact North America's Buick Regal GS. No, it may not share the same powertrain punch as the Euro-spec OPC, but visually, the cars are nearly identical. When questioned about possible changes for the GS, a Buick spokesperson told us that the automaker "can't comment" on any changes at this point. Even so, we wouldn't be surprised if some small changes come our way in the next year or so.

GM throttles back Chevy Malibu, Buick LaCrosse production over swollen inventories

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:31:00 EST

As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.

Why Buick's Encore wasn't a Chevy

Wed, 31 Oct 2012 16:21:00 EST

Buick is taking a gamble with its 2013 Encore. General Motors' near-luxury brand has enjoyed great success attracting conquest buyers to its larger Enclave crossover, but it has never offered something quite like this small CUV.
Very early signs suggest that the gamble might be working. According to Mark Reuss, President of General Motors, the automaker expected about 1,500 initial orders from its dealers for the Encore, but it's tracking closer to 9,000 units. Alluding to the fact that historically, Buick has shared similar products with GM's other brands, Reuss says that Buick dealers are "thrilled to have an exclusive." The automaker already markets almost identical models in other markets as the Opel/Vauxhall Mokka and Chevrolet Trax, but The General's other brands won't offer a twin to the new baby Buick.
The new Encore is based on the Gamma architecture that underpins the Chevrolet Sonic, and it shares the economy car's available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. With standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive, GM says its Encore will be pitted against competitors like the BMW X1 and Audi Q3, both of which are much more expensive but also much more powerful.
