1987 Buick Regal Grand National - SOLD
1987 Buick Regal Grand National
3.8 SFI Turbo
In 1982, the Regal Grand National debuted, which was named for the NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series (the Grand National term was part of the Cup series nomenclature until 1986). Buick had won the Manufacturers Cup in 1981 and 1982, and wanted to capitalize on its success: What wins on Sunday, sells on Monday. After a brief sort of experimental run, the Grand National returned with an ahead of its time turbocharged 3.8 liter V6 matching power of the big V8s. While restrictions were high at the time, these mean road warriors were definitely in the front of the muscle car pack in the 1980s.
