1986 Buick Grand National Barn Find, 18 years in storage
Here's my 1986 Buick GN, that I just purchased from the original owner and
brought her home yesterday. She has 17,588 miles and has been in storage
for the last 18 years. Looking forward to freshening up everything and
getting her on the road this summer. A big thank you to her original owner
for taking such great care of the car and keeping copious documentation.
Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action.
This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the
last year of the designer cars.
Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to
find the right spot between Boosting
and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan
is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed
under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool.
I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame
sideburns included...shot by my dad)

Here's my "watch how fast it flies out the door" car of the week. If you
don't snatch this one up quickly, I guarantee someone else will. Hesitate
at your own risk. This Regal is 1 of only 1575 T-Types built in '85.
In the '80s, when the muscle car renaissance began, automakers rediscovered
using technology, not cubic inches. If you were paying attention to cars
back then, you know that one of the undisputed horsepower kings of the
mid-80s was the rear-wheel-drive Buick Regal with its turbocharged 3.8 liter V6. Eventually they evolved
to the 1987 GNX, which was reputedly so wickedly powerful and fast that the
FBI ordered the final 300 that rolled off the assembly line. Whether this
is true or not is the cause of much speculation, but there's no denying the
cars were brutally fast and responded well to small modifications. Even
today, Grand National Buicks are tearing up drag strips all across the
country and there's a thriving aftermarket dedicated to the restoration and
modification of these really cool cars.
This '85 Regal T-Type is in great condition. The T-Type was not a Grand
National, although it features the same hardware under the skin. While the
Grand National was completely monochromatic, the T-Types retained the
Regals chrome bumpers and grille and featured a slightly different
interior. The panels are straight with no signs of damage or rust. The
black paint is very nice and the chrome bumpers on this car are in
excellent condition without a ding or parking lot dent anywhere.
The V6 turbocharged 3.8 litre has only
80,410 miles on it, and is 100% stock. Look at the pictures and you can see
how well-maintained this T-Type is. Everything is in top-flight condition.
There's not any additional flash under there, but it is factory original
and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare
car like this one. The hot turbo motor
is backed by GM's ultra-reliable 4-speed automatic. This Buick offers great
off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities. Sitting at
all four corners are a set of Grand National rims and nicely treaded tires.
Inside, the all original interior is more luxury than sport. As a Buick,
this T-Type is loaded with all the features you'd expect: power windows,
power locks, climate control, an aftermarket stereo system with MP3 player,
tilt wheel, and power front seats. All of the interior lights work. The
upholstery is a bit faded, but aside from that, is in great condition. The
seats are comfortable for long stretches and again, they are what the
factory was putting out in 1985. The trunk has a car cover and spare, and
it's just as nice as the rest of the interior.
Documentation includes the body build sheet found on the underside of the
Everybody knows about the legendary Grand National Buicks, and nobody
scoffs at them. They're incredibly easy to modify to outrageous power
levels and highly collectable, even today. The T-Types are arguably rarer
and certainly more unique with their slightly more luxury-oriented mission.
This T-Type is an incredible bargain, and you can almost bet on the fact
that these cars will only become more valuable in the coming years. Pick
this one up and enjoy it while it appreciates! Call Tom today at

In 1986, a modified engine design with intercooling Boosted the performance even further; in 1987
it reached 245 hp (183 kW) and 355 lb·ft (481 N·m) of torque. Buick
dropped the T-Type package for Regal in 1987. There were only 7,896 turbo Regals produced in 1986. In 1987, when turbo Regals reached their peak in
popularity, a total of 27,590 turbo
Regals were produced through December, with those models produced between
September and December of that year window stickered as "1987½ Buick Grand
In 1987, a lightweight WE4 (turbo T)
option was offered. Only 1,547 of this variant were produced. They were
painted black and treated to the same blackout package as the Grand
National, including bumpers, grille, headlight and taillight trim. The
differences between a WE4 and the Grand National were the interior trim
package, wheels, exterior badging, aluminum bumper supports, and aluminum
rear brake drums as opposed to the Grand National's cast iron. The rear
spoiler was only available as a dealer installed option. 1987 was the only
year that the LC2 turbo option was
available on any Regal, making it possible to even see a Limited with a
vinyl landau roof and a power bulge turbo hood. turbo Regal Limiteds were one of the rarest models
of turbo Regals produced second only to
the GNX at 1,035 turbo Limiteds. turbo Regal Limiteds could be ordered with many
options with most having chrome external trim but for $35 could have been
built with the full black-out trim option making them extremely rare.
Limiteds were treated to a very luxurious interior with plush carpeting and
optional bench pillow seats and a column shift. The 1987 model would be the
end of the manufacture of the RWD "G-Body" Regal, but GM had to extend the
build of the Grand National to meet customer demand.
For the final year, 1987, Buick introduced the GNX at $29,900. Produced by
McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC, Buick underrated the GNX at 276 hp
(206 kW) and a very substantial 360 lb·ft (488 N·m) of torque. This
was created to be the "Grand National to end all Grand Nationals." Changes
made included a special Garrett T-3 turbocharger with a ceramic-impeller blowing
through a more efficient and significantly larger capacity Intercooler with a "CERMATEL
(Ceramic/Aluminum) coated" pipe connecting the Intercooler to the engine. A GNX
specific EEPROM, low-restriction Exhaust with dual mufflers, reprogrammed turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with a
custom torque converter and transmission cooler, and unique differential
cover/panhard bar included more of the performance modifications. Exterior
styling changes include vents located on each front fender, 16 inch black
mesh style wheels with VR-speed rated tires, and deletion of the hood and
fender emblems. The interior changes of the GNX included a serial number on
the dash plaque and a revised instrument cluster providing analog
Stewart-Warner gauges, including an analog turboBoost
gauge. Performance was measured with a quarter mile time of 13.5 seconds at
102 mph (164 km/h) and a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 4.7 seconds.  GNX
#001 is the 1986 prototype currently owned by Buick and sometimes makes
appearances at car shows around the US. The GNX had a ladder bar that ran
from the mid-section of the car to the rear axle, so as to increase
traction. This is also the reason why a GNX will actually lift the rear end
up when the car is about to launch heavily.
