Fly Low in the Grand National or Fly High, many of our photos of this GM classic were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom.
1987 would be the final and pinnacle year of the Grand National. The base turbocharged 3.8 liter engine churned out 330 ft-lbs of torque at 2400 rpm while making 235 horsepower at only 4,000 rpms. These cars boast sub 14-second quarter mile times at over 100mph off the showroom floor. This example has some modifications. The exhaust system is custom, from a high flow downtube to free-flowing intercooler piping and dual exhaust system, all displaying beautifully throughout. It runs excellent. An aftermarket fuel pressure regulator and hi flow in-tank fuel pump are also in place.
The exterior showcases a quality black finish, the only color available for the '87 Grand National. The paint and body are in exceptional condition with a few minor chip touch-ups and an extremely straight body. Note the crack photographed above. "The bulge in your hood will put a lump in your throat." This was a marketing line used to describe the Grand National.
The exterior has few distinguishing features in this all-business G-body Buick. This menacing stance is partially attributed to the blacked-out factory 15-inch wheels wrapped in new B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A radials. The shocks have recently been replaced as well. The engine compartment displays the turbo-charged 3.8 liter V6 engine in all its glory. The engine is clean and detailed. A few breathing modifications have been done along with an Accufab fuel pressure regulator installed. The intercooler charge lines are polished stainless and the turbo-charger heat shield is also polished.
Open the doors to the 1980s. This interior is a time machine, very clean and original. The two-tone black & gray upholstery is in excellent condition, front to rear. The dash displays factory instrumentation in excellent condition. An aftermarket Alpine AM/FM CD Stereo has also been installed. The door panels are in excellent condition as are the door undersides. This is a dry climate and garage kept car.
The underbody showcases original sheetmetal throughout this dry climate Grand National. The flooring and framework is in excellent condition. The trunk is clean and detailed, original throughout with no mat. The metal is in excellent condition.
