Some Fun Reads For You from Hagerty;

Buick introduced the Regal nameplate in 1973 as a mid-priced, personal luxury coupe, akin to Chevrolets Monte Carlo and Pontiacs Grand Prix. A sedan was added to the lineup in 1974, and the companys new car immediately became one of Buicks best sellers. The mid-1970s fuel crunch heavily influenced the cars first redesign, which debuted in 1978.

The 1978 Buick Regal, now only offered as a two-door coupe, was slightly smaller, slightly lighter, and received more squared-off lines and fewer design effects. Most notably, however, was the introduction of a turbocharged V-6 engine. While the Big Three had used turbochargers in the past on production vehicles (e.g., the Chevrolet Corvair and the Oldsmobile F-85), they had been absent in the U.S. market on a domestic offering for nearly a decade. The turbo increased both fuel economy and performance, bumping horsepower from 105 to 165 on the 231-c.i. V-6, and was installed in the Regal Sport Coupe. Entry-level and Limited trims could be equipped with one of two naturally aspirated V-6s, or with a two- or four-barrel 305-c.i. V-8. In all, less than 10 percent of Regals were equipped with the turbo engine.

Engine choices changed slightly as the model years ticked by, 1981 saw a more streamlined restyle, and a sedan and station wagon briefly joined the coupe in the catalog. Following success on the NASCAR circuit in 1981 and 1982 with a performance-oriented, 180-hp Regal Turbo T-Type in 1983. The biggest change to the Regal lineup, however, occurred in 1984 when the Grand National appeared.

The Grand National was a different beast indeed, with a sinister, blacked-out Darth Vader visage. The $1,282 package bumped the Regal T-Types sticker price up to $13,400, and included suspension modifications, a different rear axle ratio, and overdrive. By now, the T-Type and Grand National turbo V-6 was putting out 200 hp.

The turbo engineers were warming to their task, and the 1986 Grand National received an intercooler and improved plenum, for 235 hp and improved torque. It was now completely black, with nearly no chrome, and despite being only a modest seller, the GN was an image changer for Buick, appealing more to a youthful buyer than the brands typical shopper.

The last year for the Grand National was 1987, and as the final mid-sized, rear-wheel drive sport coupe, demand surged. It didnt hurt that 1987 was the 245-hp Grand Nationals fastest year, with 0-60 times of 6.1 seconds, and a 13.85 quarter mile at 99.2 mph. Sales were comparatively brisk for the GN, and 20,193 were built in 1987, 10,000 being ordered in the last 6 months.
