4 månader sedan

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

This car absolutely had 100,056 miles not 56 miles. If it had 56 miles it would have probably never been washed, maybe once. There would not that many paint swirls. Cool car and beautiful, but clearly not 56 miles.

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.
largol33t1 Månad sedan
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...

Now correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is Eddie Sferrazza from a House Of Muscle episode on MotorTrend! At that time he had a black and gold 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Guy has great taste in cars!!

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.
