It’s hard to believe 2020 is closer than the year 2010. As time marches forward, we’re beginning to see a new round of classic cars reach collector status. The Buick Grand National and GNX are two examples of what collectors are looking for from upcoming historical vehicles. Because, let’s face it, all the 1957 Bel Airs can only trade hands so many times before other vehicles rise to prominence.
Yahoo Autos has picked up on this 1987 Buick GNX heading to Mecum for auction, where it could possibly reach a premium associated with price tags of Ferraris. Why? Because merely 16 miles have been put on the car in its lifetime. Previously, a Buick GNX sold for $163,000 with only 400 miles on the odometer, meaning there’s room to play in the six-figure market still.
This example happens to be one of the last 547 Buick GNXs ASC/McLaren built for the tri-shield, with no defects, bumps, bruises or scratches to be found. Even the velour seats sit in pristine condition.
Mecum has yet to create a lot page for the vehicle, but expect many to be keeping a watchful eye on this GNX, as it continues the cult-classic love affair this vehicle has found over the years.
