Thinking about purchasing a 1987 Buick Grand National.
VIN#: 1G4GJ1170HP454714
The RPO on the car does say WE2 on the back, but the Carfax says:
VIN: 1G4GJ1170HP454714
Body Style: COUPE
Engine Size: 3.8L V6 F OHV
Drivetrain: REAR WHEEL DRIVE

I was under the impression it should say 3.8L V6 F OHV TURBO for a GN, but Carfax doesn't say TURBO.

I just checked my carfax that I got several years ago & it does not state that it is a turbo after OHV. I purchased my GN in 2/89. I also got a report from instavin & they state on the 2nd page of report under vehicle specifications for trim level it says Grand National turbo & under style, Grand National turbo 2 door coupe. Not sure instavin is in business anymore, but there are other sites you could look at to verify. Good luck
