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.

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!

All black, all business and so sinister even your shut-in grandmother knows
it means trouble, this prim and polished Buick backs $31K worth of V6 power
with a modified drivetrain and custom suspension!
This Grand National's wet-looking coat of GM code 19U Black highlights
original sheetmetal that's both crisp and sharp. The car's vertical panels
center straight surfaces in even gaps, showing no signs of damage or
accident repairs. And, topped by great looking, factory-correct trim, the
finish on those panels is every bit as glossy as it is deep.
The professionally built sixer behind this coupe's Vader-like grille is
founded on a new block that was magnafluxed, sonic-tested, squared, honed,
bored .020 and fitted with CNC-ported Champion Racing heads. Inside that
block, A SCAT stroker crank combines with billet, hand-machined rods,
machined and coated Ross Racing pistons and a Comp hydraulic roller cam to
provide smooth inertia. Combustion is created when 8mm AC Delco Premium
Silicone wires bump Morel roller rockers, Morel pushrods and Morel lifters.
A steady amalgamation of oxygen and fossils is provided by a K&N air
filter, a 70mm Accufab throttle body, a ported and matched intake,
Alkycontrol Methanol Injection and 60# fuel injectors. And coated headers,
a PTE high-flow Intercooler,
fabricated air tubes and a TA Performance oil pump keep everything lucid
and cool. All those carefully calculated improvements are, with the help of
a turboTweak chip, good for a
universally impressive 550 Dyno-proven rear wheel horsepower. And items like
ARP bolts, ARP studs, Cometic gaskets, coated engine bearings and a Cloyes
roller timing set ensure everything works in unison to provide invigorating
and equally terrifying acceleration.
Behind that raucous engine, a custom-programmed Four C's automatic
transmission makes good use of a SCAT flywheel, a 3,500 RPM non-lockup
stall and 200R4 billet internals. That gearbox twists torque through a
billet yoke, a heavy duty driveshaft, heavy duty U-joints and a proven
Currie 9-inch, which is fitted with beefy, 3.53 gears. Factory power
steering rides between QA1 Street Control Arms and adjustable QA1
coil-over-shocks. Out back, adjustable QA1 trailing arms compress two more
QA1 coil-over-shocks. Power-assisted stops are provided by a combination of
big Wilwood calipers, drilled and slotted rotors and 11-inch GM drums.
Charred dinosaurs float in to rowdy Pypes Race Pro mufflers. And power
meets pavement through Budnik X-Series Grand National wheels, which spin
225/45ZR17 BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sports in front of 275/40R17 Mickey
Thompson ET Street Radials.
Inside this awesome street bruiser you'll find a correct Gray and Black
interior that's virtually spotless. Leather-wrapped SCAT PROCAR buckets
provide much more support than factory fodder. Opposite those seats,
factory gauges inhabit a blocky dash that's free of warps and cracks. Below
that dash, a factory console frames an elegant factory shifter. And,
because increased safety is essential at this level of performance,
everything is wrapped in a tasteful roll cage.
With $31K in engine receipts alone, this incredible G-Body is an incredible
bargain. And you can pretty much bank on the fact that the car will grow in
value as it and its buyer base continues to mature. So, what are you
waiting for? Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com and enjoy
one of the nicest Grand Nationals on the planet WHILE it appreciates!
