Ol Gray back up for sale..'87 Turbo T

Slo86GN

The Nightstalker
Family issues have forced me to list my Turbo T for sale. Car was just recently fired off and driven for the first time in a year....motor isn't even broken in yet. On the short test drive I took her on, all I can say is she is one mean, fast, good riding car now. Unfortunately, she needs to find a new home so I can help out the family. I know I'm going to take a huge loss, plus I will miss the ol girl, but priorities change. If she sells, will pick up another one some day and build it up.

1987 Buick Regal Turbo T hardtop.....code 15U Gray...WO2 blackout trim. Body is fairly straight and rust free. 174K miles on the chassis, but was owned by older lady, so wasn't abused. Original GA delivered car...have the original window sticker, bill of sale, owners manuals, receipts for work done over the years, maintenance records, etc. Body is in very good condition other than a few dings/small dents. Interior is in good condition, just sun faded from years of southern sunshine. Headliner is showing no signs of sagging, just needs a little cleaning. Car was originally a non G80 car, but at some point the original owner replaced the 8.5" with a 7.5" from a regular Regal. I bought the complete G80 rear out of an 87 GN, so it now has the correct 8.5" rear under it, with some improvements. Car rides very nice and tight, with no squeaks/rattles since replacing all body bushings and installing the bracing. She was built with the intentions of running 11's on pump gas, then turn the wick up to go 10's in race trim. She does need some odds/ends finished.....wire in the tach, shift lite, rpm signal box; do some minor touch up underhood, install the external fuel pressure gauge. Otherwise, she is ready to go.

Looks like I may have a deal on both cars. I'll hate to see the ol gray Buick go away, but learned a lot of lessons from her for the next time around.
