From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Falling solidly in the survivor category, this remarkably well-maintained and super clean 1987 Buick Grand National hasnt been abused, raced, or otherwise mistreated. Instead, it shows just 43,170 original miles and has been in the long-term care of an enthusiast who always treated it as something of value. With the market for these cars growing each year, its getting harder and harder to find one that hasnt been modified, raced, or wrecked. These cars were sinister when they were new, and even today seeing one of these blown Buicks prowling the streets fills a car guy with excitement. The legend has probably outgrown the actual car at this point, but the blacked-out trim, the bulging hood, and the simple ducktail spoiler all give this car a look that demands respect. Thats original paint, and the car has never been hit or damaged, yet it looks a lot younger than its 30 years would suggest. The nose shows only a few signs of having been driven, and unlike cars that have been on the track, the lower rocker panels and quarters havent been sandblasted by rocks thrown by sticky racing slicks. These cars seem to have better initial paint quality than most GM cars of the period, so theres very little orange peel although it is a bit faded and there are the usual swirl marks. However, the bumper fillers need to be replaced, which is a common issue with all GM cars of the period, even those that have been properly maintained. Even with the T-tops and all that torque, the doors open and close easily, the trunk fits right, and the hood gaps are excellent. This GN also carries two-tone bucket seats with embroidered headrests, transforming the formal Regal interior to something a bit more appropriate. The original seats remain in exemplary condition, with no major wear in the high-traffic areas like the drivers side bolster. Gauges are basic, although engineers managed to stick a bar-graph tachometer and boost gauge in the lower corner of the speedometer, both of which youll enjoy watching as the potent V6 builds power. As a Buick, the GN was loaded with just about every comfort and convenience feature you could throw at a car, including A/C, power windows, power locks, a tilt wheel, and a center console. The headliner is sagging a little, a problem with cars of this vintage but its not critical, but youll note that this car has optional carpet savers that are still in place. In addition, the neatly preserved trunk still carries its original mats and jack assembly. The 3.8 liter turbocharged V6 is legendary, and while its possible to make giant horsepower with just a few bolt-on modifications, the cars previous owners were able to resist the horsepower sirens call of a bigger turbo and revised computer programming. The original components remain intact, including all the turbocharger hardware and fuel system, two things that were often modified almost immediately. The only notable upgrades are a Kenne Bell intake and some upgraded spark plug wires. The engine bay is nicely detailed, and its easy to tell that enthusiasts have owned this one, because the A/C system looks mostly new and there are correct details throughout. Underneath, its just as clean, and the 2004R 4-speed automatic transmission still upshifts almost imperceptibly and downshifts with authority when the boost comes up. This one also wears those handsome chrome Grand National wheels with black accents that look great, plus a set of 215/65/15 Michelin radials. Great to drive, handsome to look at, and with low miles and no abuse, this Grand National remains surprisingly affordable...for now. Call today!
