1978 Buick Regal $12,595

O Fallon, IL Copper · 3.8L V6 · 28,320 miles
For sale in our Detroit Showroom is a very unique 1978 Buick Regal Turbo Coupe. Buicks V6 story dates back to the early sixties when it debuted the engine in 1962. In the time of cheap gas and big V8s, the V6 wasnt very popular, so in 1966, Buick sold the tooling to Kaiser Jeep (later part of American Motors Corp.) where it found its way into many Jeep vehicles. But by 1974, small displacement and fuel economy were the direction of the future and Buick bought back the little V6 from AMC. With the success of the 76 Pace Car, Buick began work to adapt the Turbo V6 to production vehicles. The idea was performance and economy. Buick wasnt trying to make a musclecar, but rather a compromise between the V-8 power and V-6 fuel economy. In 1978, Buick added the Turbo 3.8 231 cid V6 to newly designed Regal and LeSabre. Both cars were given the model designation Sport Coupe. Each subsequent year, engineers refined the little Turbo V6. It found its way into several models, including the FWD Riviera and Chevrolets Monte Carlo, but the most popular model, by far, was the Regal. This Regal is dressed in Brown with a Light Tan interior that looks amazing. The sound that this turbo generates makes driving this beautiful Buick intoxicating. With under 30,000 original miles, you can guarantee that this Buick has plenty of life left for its next owner.
