133259 / 1986 Buick Grand National
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9rte5fm All black, all business, and so sinister even your shut-in grandmother knows it means trouble on the streets, this 9,536 mile Buick Grand National survivor is nearly perfect in every way! Assembled in Pontiac, Michigan and delivered to Whelan Buick in Freehold, New Jersey, this low-mileage G-Body is one turbo Buick survivor that's in outstanding condition! A wet-looking coat of GM code 19U black lacquer highlights modern Buick styling that's both crisp and sharp. The car's vertical panels center straight surfaces in even gaps and show no signs of damage or accident repairs. And its finish, which is topped by great looking original trim, is every bit as glossy as it is deep. We all know how bad mid-80s GM paint application can be. But not on this Buick, it was definitely sprayed by someone who knew exactly what they were doing; and when it comes to overall presentation, it's one of the nicest factory Grand Nationals we've ever seen! Speaking of survivors and GM's post-apocalyptic business model, if anyone ever gets around to doing an ultimate engine survivor's list Buick's stalwart 231 cubic inch V6 will surely be at the top. Introduced as the Fireball, and eventually renamed the 3800, its early 60s design was sold to Kaiser, bought back by General Motors and, with the help of turbos, Superchargers and continuous improvements, would remain one of the company's core powerplants until the turn of the century! For the 1986 model year the Grand National's turbocharged 3.8 liter, which had already benefitted from sequential fuel injection and a distributorless ignition system, saw significant mechanical changes that included a new air-to-air Intercooler, adjustments to its Garrett turbo, improved upper and lower intake manifolds, and a redesigned Exhaust system. All those carefully calculated tweaks and improvements were good for a newly impressive 235 horsepower and 330 lb./ft. of V8 slaying of torque. And the car's drag strip scorching performance would not only best GM's own Camaro and Corvette, but also catapult it to the forefront of 80s performance! The car's hot turbo engine spins torque through an original BRF tagged member of GM's ultra-reliable turbo-Hydramatic 4-speed transmission family; an honorable and faithful group that's survived behind GM's toughest performance blocks for decades. That seasoned transmission twists a set of original 3.42 gears which offer a great combination of starting line grip and high-speed cruising ability. And at the ends of that heavy duty drivetrain, double A-arm front and four link rear Gran Touring suspensions create NASCAR inspired handling characteristics. Unrestrained these Buick's were probably legitimate 150 MPH cars, but the factory knew the limitations of the Regal's aerodynamics, suspension, and brakes and wisely chose to reign in the fun long before peak velocity. Speaking of brakes and the like, factory power front discs and rear drums provide solid stops. Fast ratio power steering makes cornering easy and turning a cinch. And at the corners, mirror-like wheels spin great looking 215/65/15 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 radials around bright Grand National center caps. Inside this awesome street bruiser you'll find an all-original gray and black interior that's literally spotless. Typical Buick fashion dictates more comfort than sport, but that's what GM's entry luxury brand has always been about anyway. And naturally, that means this Grand National is loaded with all the features you'd expect including power windows, power locks, climate control, cruise control, a completely electronic Delco-GM AM/FM cassette stereo, a tilt steering wheel, a rear window defroster, an electronic trunk release, and of course, Grand National-specific Lear Siegler seats that include six-way power adjustment for the driver. In front of those seats digital gauges, which seem completely appropriate in this turbo Buick, inhabit a blocky dash that's free of warps and cracks. At the sides of those seats, light and linear door panels combine with the car's pristine T-tops to provide an airy and comfortable ride. And the driver interfaces with the road through a cool looking satin-spoke steering wheel. Come on in, pick this Buick up, and enjoy one of the nicest Grand Nationals on the planet WHILE it appreciates!

1987 Buick Grand National Drag Racing Racelegal.com 9-7-2012
Friday night drag racing at qualcomm stadium drag race your ride on the 1/8 mile drag 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.[5] 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 turbo Boost 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.[6] 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 midsection 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.

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."
