1987 Buick Grand National Drag Racing Racelegal.com 3-28-2014
1987 Buick Grand National Drag Racing Racelegal.com RaceLegal, the safer and sanctioned track alternative to illegal street racing, was developed with one goal in mind. Saving the needless loss of young lives to an illegal street race gone bad is RaceLegal's mantra. To that end we have been remarkably effective. The concept was one of providing a youth oriented environment in a neutral and centrally located location where we could replicate a street environment, but with safer and sanctioned conditions that insured the safety of our racers and their fans. The under pinning is one of skillfully redirecting illegal street racing behavior to the safer and sanctioned sport of drag racing in a youth oriented setting. As sated above, the results are impressive.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, making the WE4 a lighter and faster car. 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 into November.

#183 - DET - 1987 Buick Grand National
For sale in our Detroit showroom is a 1987 Buick Grand National. The
always black Grand National was produced from 1982-1987, powered by turbocharged V6 3.8L, and based on the Buick
Regal. The best performing Grand Nationals were the 1986-1987 model years,
being intercooled. Properly optioned (non T-top) '86-87 Grand Nationals
were the fastest American produced cars, even faster than the GM golden child, Corvette.
Some say that didn't sit well with GM, leading to the demise of the Grand
National. Making '86-87 intercooled GNs that much more rare and desirable.
Options on the Grand National include: AM/FM/CASS, Power brakes, Power
steering, Power locks, Power seats, Power windows, Anti-lock brakes, Tilt,
Traction control, Cloth, Aluminum wheels with radial tires. This Buick is
a fine example of an unmolested Grand National, 3rd owner (owned twice by
original), with just 78,669 original miles. The rebirth of the Grand
National is on the horizon, coming in 2015, the most opportune time to own
the original Buick T-type is upon us. Averaging over 20mpg this machine is
a sparkling gem in the horse power stunted Cold War era, bringing the GN to
a crossroads of American engineering and an idle boldness... Creating the
quintessential, factory, sleeper. For more information on this 1987 Buick
Grand National call our Detroit showroom at (313)-982-3100. To view this
car in full detail including HD pictures and video visit our website at

1987 Buick Grand National Classic Car turbo spools,,, and its GONE!
Buick's Grand National is a modern day muscle car and is now officially a
classic car. Its been 27 years since the final production year of 1987.
This example, on display at Texas Classic Cars of Dallas, is in excellent
condition, sporting upgraded Exhaust
and fuel delivery modifications, otherwise completely stock in appearance.
These cars were one of America's fastest domestics and still holds it own
against import and home time muscle. Enjoy the video! Sam - samspace81
1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
