Year:1987 Mileage:125400

Morrisville, Pennsylvania, United States

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.

J.D. Power study sees new car dependability problems increase for first time since 1998

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:31:00 EST

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.

Opel to be shuttered in China, but will restart Buick production in Germany

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 18:28:00 EST

Opel, General Motors' troubled German brand continues its quest to reinvent itself and find solid profitability. In the course of that metamorphosis, the company has a bit of good news/bad news today. The good news is, it will once again begin screwing together Buick models for the American market. The bad news, though, is that it's being shut down in yet another country, China.
Let's start with the good news. The last vehicle Opel's Ruesselsheim factory built for the North American market was the early run of the then-new Regal, which is based heavily on the Opel Insignia. Production ran for just over two years, from 2009 to 2011, before moving production to Oshawa, Ontario.
Now, thanks to a 245-million-euro investment (just over $336 million), Opel will kick off production of a unspecified model for the US in the "second half of the decade," according to Automotive News. According to Opel, the new model will be announced before the end of 2014. You can begin your speculation about this new model down in Comments (we're wagering it'll be the Cascada convertible, sold here under the Buick umbrella).

Buick has best sales year ever, delivers over 1M cars globally

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 18:31:00 EST

If there are any lingering doubts why General Motors held onto Buick while killing Pontiac, Hummer and Saturn, one only has to look at the sales numbers from 2013 for the real answer. Thanks largely to strong sales in China, Buick set a global sales record last year by selling more than one million vehicles.
The lion's share of Buick sales came from China, which sold more than 809,000 units - about four times more Buicks than were sold in North America as a whole. In the US, the Buick Encore accounted for almost half of all US sales with 97,311 units as Buick spent the summer trying to keep up with demand of the subcompact crossover. Likewise, China-only models like the GL8 minivan and Excelle sedan (same as the US-spec Verano) were strong sellers in that market.
For good measure, Buick more than doubled its sales in Mexico with 2,319 units. Scroll down for the full press release.
