1987 Buick Grand National

From Blackdog Performance Cars
1987 Buick Grand National



For sale at Blackdog Performance Cars is an incredibly low mile 1987 Buick Grand National. With just 1,145 original miles on the odometer, this iconic Grand National is ready for its spot in a classic car collection. The black and gray interior (seats and steering wheel) have been under a protectant cover since new and still look new! The interior is exactly as you would expect from a car with only 1,145 miles, no matter the age of the vehicle. There are plenty stories about the poor paint quality of these Grand Nationals from the factory. In some instances, the dealers felt it was so poor they performed paint correction, and many times made it worse. The paint on this Grand National appears to be original according to the paint gauge. The black paint is not perfect, it is 32 years old, but still shows well. The tires are original as well, as the DOT date code indicates they were produced the 8th week of 1987.

This particular Grand National is extremely well documented. All original paperwork was laminated and is included with the sale. The original window sticker, bill of sale, title work, etc, all protected, sealed, and included. The original manuals, pamphlets, and brochures were also kept with the car and are included with the sale. This is a very low mile, original, and documented Grand National. 

The Buick Grand National debuted in 1982, as a result of Buick winning the Manufactures Cup in 1981 and 1982 in the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series. Buick wanted to show off their success on the track and capitalize on the theory of ‘what wins on Sunday, sells on Monday’. Only 215 were produced in 1982, and in 1983 they were renamed the T-Type. In 1984 the name ‘Grand National’ was back, and now it was black. The turbocharged 3.8L V6 and 200R4 4-speed automatic transmission was now and remained the standard driveline for the duration of the Grand National production run.

In 1987 the Grand National run was ending, Buick wanted to have it go out in style, and so we were blessed with the GNX. The Grand National to end all Grand Nationals. 547 Grand Nationals were built and sent to McLaren for performance and handling mods. The end result was a car that was quicker than the Ferrari F40 and Porsche 930 in the ¼ mile and 0 to 60 mph. Due to its performance and all black appearance it was dubbed Darth Vader’s car. As time has passed, the GNX is truly the Lord of the 80’s.

With only 547 GNX’s produced, they are hard to come by and their value has jumped into six figures. The little brother, the Grand National, has also seen an upswing in value, with original, low mileage examples commanding a good amount of attention at national auctions, sales, and shows. This is an amazing opportunity to grab one of the lowest mile Grand Nationals in the world and add it to your collection. Included with the sale are the original window sticker, bill of sale, odometer statement, and original manuals and booklets.
