Q: Why is the Buick Grand National so expensive?
I have found and immaculate 1987 model Grand National for sale in my town. The Kelley Blue Book states the private resale value of the car as $24,000, which is also the asking price of the owner. What makes these cars so special to be valued at such a high price?
A: Because they are a collectors item ! Limited production, having one in “immaculate condition” is like having money in the bank they are race or show cars right off the street and have a large following can run with Corvettes and still get decent mileage .
Q: Where can I get a 1987 Buick Grand National?
I’m looking for just a regular ole’ 87′ Buick Grand National in black…If you know where I can get one, please let me know!! Thanks!!
A: Umm, all 1987 Grand Nationals came in black. These cars are highly coveted and command higher-than-you-might-expect prices. A low-mileage example in good condition can be had for around $20kish. There’s no such thing as a “regular ole’” Grand National.
Q: Is it true that the Buick Grand National was the fastest car built on the assembly line?
If I remember correctly, there was only a certain number of them built between 1985 and 1987 – is that correct as well?
A: You are right for the years but the 87 model was the quickest out of all the years it was built! But v6 turbo engines were put in regals and t-types from 1979 they are very rare cars but the 87 was the quickest, it was quicker then the 87 corvette not bad for a full frame grocery getter car!!! They also made the GNX which is quicker then all of them and only a few were made! If you have one of them they are worth a large coin!!!
Q: where can i buy a 1987 buick grand national for a really cheap price?
hi im 17 and i really like this car and i only have 1200$ saved but i can get 500 more.i want to buy this car to make it my first project car it doesn’t matter how the body is as long as it comes with the original engine.i live in florida btw.thanks for your time and please help me on this.
A: Even though the Buick turbo Regal Grand Nationals are getting close to 25 years old they remain a very strong collectible. Finding one cheap isn’t going to be easy. Even complete basket cases are going for $5000 or more. If you can’t afford to buy one, how on earth do you think you are going to afford to restore one. You could easily put $10,000 into this car and still not be done.
You may love these cars but as a first car you should look elsewhere for something a little more practical.

Q: how do you change the digital dash display on the 1984 Buick Grand National from metric to english?
The only button on the cluster just resets the odometer(trip) when in start up, the cluster cycles in eng and metric, so i know it can be done.
A: There should be a Metric/MPH button to reset, my Buick does.
Q: What’s so good about a buick grand national?
I know they have turbos and have like 300hp but that isnt that much.
A: Back in the 80s 300 hp was a lot thanks to the 70’s emissions laws. That was a very fast car for the time.
Q: How can you tell the difference between a true Buick Grand National and a clone?
Anything that can help.. Pics, websites, experience, etc.
A: You can’t be sure between a GN and a turbo Regal, both will have the engine code in the VIN as 7. The RPO sticker can help.
Q: Is there another car similar the Buick Regal Grand National?
I tried out the 1987 Buick Regal Grand National today and I was blown away! I absolutely love it. I love the fast 3.8L Turbocharged, inter-cooled engine. I was wondering if GM made anything else similar to the Grand National? Maybe they made a similar Chevy Monte Carlo or an Oldsmobile Cutlass?
Does anyone know? Thanks for your time.
A: The 1987 Buick Regal was a G platform. This was GM’s midsize RWD car from 1982 to 88. In addition to the Regal, there was also the Chevrolet El Camino, Malibu, Monte Carlo, GMC Caballero, Olds Cutlass, Pontiac Bonneville, Grand Prix, and Grand LeMans. The performance editions were the Monte Carlo SS, Olds 442, and various other alterations of the Regal, among others. I’d say that the Monte Carlo SS would be the most similar to the GN in looks. A Regal T-Type had the 3.8L Turbo as well. The other cars had more powerful V8’s. If you want more, type “GM G platform (RWD)” into Wikipedia.
Q: what would be the insurance for 1987 buick grand national?
im getting my first car and im 17, also what about and 1986,87 regal or regal limited?
A: Not sure, but I do know that insurance on a car that is over 25 years old is a lot cheaper.
Q: What did you think when the Buick Grand National came out?
I’m just curious what some of you muscle car guys thought when the least likely company (Buick) came out with a car faster than a Corvette in 1984. Were you like “oh my god, are you serious?”
A: It was one sweet vehicle to say the least and I still have one customer that has one in storage that has about 3000 miles on it, guess he is just waiting for someone with some serious bucks…..
Q: Does anyone make a body/ground effect kit for a 1986 Buick grand national?
I’d like to find a body kit similar to the dub city car kit for a real car.
A: I would recommend against adding a ground kit. I have a ‘87 GN and can tell you that it is better to keep the factory look. You will always get respect keeping the body stock. You can trick it out with other options, but messing with the look will just cheapen it.
It will never look “Formula 1 Car” fast. Hello – no aerodynamics!! Strictly from an aesthetic standpoint, adding ground effects to an ‘86 GN is like putting a spoiler on a cinder block.
Q: where can I find a store that just has parts for a buick grand national?
It is a popular car but kind of rare it was mad in the mid 80’s and i would like to find an online store that just has parts for that car.
A: Here it is check it out …
Q: I have an 82 Buick Grand National to sell what’s the best way to sell this rare vehicle?
This car is one of 215 made the first year they made the Grand National – it’s a T-Type with less then 60,000 original miles – everything is original except the battery – It’s very rare as there are only about 100 still owned. Unfortunately my husband doesn’t know enough to give it the love it needs. Would like to sell it to a collector or someone that restores them but don’t know how to find someone that would know what they are buying… if anyone has any suggestions they would be welcome… Thanks
