The opportunity to buy a showroom-new Buick GNX ran out in 1987 after all 547 cars were sold off, but Mecum is offering the next best thing at its approaching Chicago auction – an example which has only travelled 45 miles since rolling off the assembly line 27 years ago.
The 1987 GNX is No. 85, which just like on every other GNX, is displayed clearly on the dashboard. We can confidently say that this is easily one of the cleanest GNXs in existence. The Miller Beer Brewing Company owned one with 11 miles on the odometer, however this car still has the protective plastic wrap on the steering wheel, seats, doors and other interior trim pieces. The engine bay also looks clean enough to eat off of and the car comes with the factory window sticker and even the rare promotional jacket that was sold with the car.
Like All Buick GNXs, this car is finished in black with matching black honeycomb wheels and a grey and black two-tone interior. And don’t forget about the turbocharged McLaren-tuned V6 producing an underrated 276 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque.
This car will likely end up in the hands of a wealthy collector who will add it to his collection and probably continue the preservation of it. Considering models with more miles have commanded six-figure sums, bidding for this car should easily top $100,000 when it crosses the auction block in Chicago.
