1987 Buick Grand National
EDIT>I forgot to add the car is a Hardtop<EDIT
Needs a paint job, but not that bad.
Rebuilt motor, to stock specs, 4k miles on it.
Rebuilt Tranny to stock specs, under 20k miles on it.
Interior is very nice, shows some wear on the seats, and one rip by drivers shoulder.
Needs some TLC, very nice driving car.
Little bit of squeaking brakes, but they are ok.
Has an oil leak from where there is a booster plate put in, easy fix. Slight Slight oil leak from rear main seal, nothing to worry about since it is super super common. Leak from valve covers, just needs gaskets, another common problem.
Oil and oil filter just changed.
Runs good, no knock at WOT.
Just had a cat back exhaust put on about 5 months ago, and it has an adjustable wastegate, but i leave it at 12 lbs, and it has a shorty ram air intake maf pipe on it with a big 9 inch k and n filter. Car is located in my house in my garage and has minimal rust. Ive only found 3 places on the body where there is rust, no bigger then silver dollar size. Car is located in Northern NJ, and very accsessable. Car is for sale locally so if iterested please let me know. Looking around $7,300, negotiable.

How many miles on the odometer? Also, in my opinion, your price sounds a bit low to me. I recently purchased my GN from a guy in Fairfax, VA for $7k in worse condition (80k miles).

i paid 6500 for mine last year in about the same condition :D

some people shy away from cars with rebuilt motor and trans- especialy when its a rebuild from an unknown or nonreputable shop- it hurts the value of the car somewhat

Thanks, but no thanks. I currently have another car and I am being forced to sell the GN. At the time I do not need another car, but thats for the offer.
Thanks,
Will

It is a real nice car, dont get rid of it when the value is about to go through the roof!!!!

John, good to see you online.
Anyways, I want to keep it so bad, but my moms not to fond of the car.
She doesnt think its safe since the brakes arnt like her car and it has no airbags. I'll try and schedule a time thats good for you then so i can drop the GN off to fix those valve cover gaskets.
Thanks,
Will
PS: I'll see what im gonna do about keeping the car, maybe talk my mom into letting me keep it, but idk.

I FOR ONE, CAN FIRMLY VOUCH THAT A REGAL CAN TAKE A HEAD-ON COLLISION WITH A 2005 CROWN VIC POLICE CRUISER, AND PROTECT YOU VERY WELL. DON'T ASK ME HOW I KNOW.

Proof: Click here

The only injury I suffered from this, other than the anxiety of looking over my crumpled hood and seeing "Police" on the side of the other car, was the fact that my Limited had coffin-handle door handles, and the driver side one came up and bumped my elbow. It REALLY hurt...at least for a quarter of a second.

Personally I think Regals are pretty safe cars. Just wear your seatbelt...I was when this crash happened, and it worked very well.

I, for one, agree that someone can survive a head on collision in a Turbo Regal. I know, because I walked away from one. As long as you were your seatbelt, you'll be fine. IT SAVED MY LIFE. Tell you mom not to worry too much. This is what was left of my WH-1.
