The 1980s were a fairly dark time for the automobile, especially at the earlier part of the decade. Underperforming engines and generous speed limiters plagued many of the hot metal from performance vehicles of the time period. There was also a fuel crisis.
So, what to do when there’s a fuel crisis? Downsize engines and turbocharge, of course! Except, in the process, Buick created one of its most lusted after vehicles to date for enthusiasts and collectors alike. That is no other than the 1987 Buick Regal GNX. And now one is yours for the taking, as a prime specimen has surfaced on eBay.
The seller describes the car like it just rolled off the assembly line, and he’s right. The car is painfully spotless, and nothing is out of place or damaged. This particular Regal GNX is number eight sold to the public, as the first examples were reserved for General Motors executives. Previous owners of the car include Reggie Jackson, retired baseball star, and a various Popeye’s CEO, according to the listing.
Nonetheless, the various owners have kept the car in pristine condition, and only 6,330 miles have been tallied to date. The 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 runs like new, and no drivability faults are present, and only regular service has been maintained on the vehicle.
So, if you’re still reading this, we command you to place a bid on this car at once. Currently, it sits at $61,000 with no bids. Hurry, before the price hits stratospheric heights. Check out the listing here.
