4 ամիս առաջ

This is a 1987 Buick Grand National that has 56 original miles found in Columbus Ohio and trailered back to NYC. We are pulling it out of the garage and giving it its first wash in 34 years! The Buick Grand National was faster than the Chevy Corvette in 1987 and was called "Darth Vaders Car" in various automotive publications. After we remove it from the Barn, we trailered it up to the AMMO Studio for a full restoration detail, foam wash, black paint polish with Rupes buffer, AMMO Reflex Pro, and a reveal to the owner at the very end of the episode. Be sure to watch the last clip of him starting the car for the very first time. Enjoy this car Barn Find episode. -Larry

Bro I just had to tell you as a Turbo Buick Fanatic and detailed as well how much it done my heart good to to see you bring this Unicorn example of an 87 GN back to the way it SHOULD look with 56 miles. As a fellow retailer as well, hats off to you Sir! A truly amazing job. You do incredible work!

Probably the ONLY ‘common man’s car’ produced by GM in the 80’s that will steal the attention away from ANY exotic parked right next to it. The most iconic recognizable and unrecognizable car ever produced.

Beautiful car! I'll bet it never looked so good...even brand new off the showroom floor. The paint quality on GM cars weren't all that great back then to begin with...especially black. A museum would be the best place for this car now, not only to preserve it but if used as a daily driver, it would not be all that dependable. Certainly not before a complete teardown mechanically. Best of luck to whomever buys it. Wish it were me!

I remember that car coming out. Grew up in Michigan where there where engineers who actually worked on the design. Rumor has it, they "dialed in" more spool on a mock up stock GN:, tires, turbo work, mapping, etc. They took it out on the Detroit streets and raced it...destroyed everything on the road. Again (rumor), they said they couldn't keep tires on it. These things had about 300 hp...can't imagine what they dialed into it.

Larry, the "crotch ac vent" is normal on Buick vehicles. My parents owned a 1980s Buick and it also had the vent under the steering wheel.

I'm glad to see this car being saved. It's a shame that some people disregard the GN when talking about supercars of the 1980s. I would love to own one. I just wish GM had built them with a 5 speed manual. It would be fun to pop the clutch and feel that turbo engine slam the seat into my back...

IMO it's impossible for a car with only 56 miles to have pain swirls on it... the odo would have been either pulled or readjusted, just doesn't add up. The dog scratches are one 1, but swirls? Same with the wheels.

Makes me wonder how many cars like this are tucked away in barns. What a cool car! I picked up a 81 turbo trans am Daytona 500 pace car a couple weeks ago that’s been sitting for years. 35,000 miles but has been sitting because of an engine fire. Slightly less clean/nice than this grand national. Good job making it look good! 👍
