Buick introduced its legendary Grand National coupe in 1982.  Named after NASCAR’s Grand National racing series, it was designed to be a factory “street machine,” and featured state of the art technology that rivaled the performance of Chevrolet’s Corvette.  Manufactured from 1982 – 1987, its performance refinements peaked in its final year, featuring a sequential fuel injected 3.8 liter turbocharged V-6 with an intercooler that yielded an impressive 245 horsepower and 355 lb-ft of torque.  Its performance was considered far ahead of its time.

You will love the stunning Grand National you see here.  Having only 45,000 original miles, this car is in top cosmetic and mechanical condition.  Its more recent high quality paint has a brilliant luster, and all exterior badges are like new.  Similarly, the interior, including its seats, carpeting, dashboard, door panels and headliner are in excellent condition and appear as new.

What truly sets this Grand National apart from all others is the abundance of performance upgrades found under the hood.  The engine was completely rebuilt in 2010 at a cost of over $9,000 by Weber Power Products with performance equipment that takes this car to the next level.  Weber Power Products is one of the foremost builders of high performance and race engines in the US.  More significant performance upgrades include the following:
