FOR SALE - 87 Turbo T, Rare WE4 (1547 made, one year only, according to Buick: fastest turbo buick after GNX, which I think is bullshit, but..). with a Clean title & Carfax. 59k miles $18,000 OBO (be reasonable with offers, I have no problem paying my mortgage and don't have any more kids on the way, at least not that I know of)

This car lived most of its life in Delaware, owned by an older couple until 1995 and then an elderly gentleman until I got it in 2012. He couldn't drive it and enjoy it anymore. This car has been well cared for its entire life and is an original 59k mile car.

All work performed by Jim Dunn & Ed @ Buick Turbo Performance from the day I got it to present, with some Turbo work and tuning by Bison.

Bumpers were taken apart and powdercoated black with NOS bumper strips (I'm sure you already figured that I go overboard!)

Steve...Shocked you're selling it! Having personally been in this car a few times (and have driven it), I can say it is a very strong runner, and extremely clean, straight, and very tastefully done. Bump for a great car and even better seller.

Almost changed my mind since it's hard to find a replacement for this kind of money. People think that these cars are made of gold, even the crappiest ones.

Price is not negotiable, unless you find flaws in it (Yes, I'm that confident!)

Might be interested in some trades, up or down, or partial.

Looking for a T type. 86 or 87, any color BUT Black, prefer bench seat, column shifter, manual windows.

No T tops or Astro roofs, no rust buckets. I'd rather deal with motor and trans problems, than rust
