The GN began as a charcoal gray Regal base coupe to which many regular production options were added. Most notably were the 4.1 liter V-6, F-41 grand touring suspension, hatch (T-top) roof, aluminum wheels with special center caps, raised white letter Goodyear Polysteel Radial tires, and a slate gray and black interior with a center console. To further complement the interior, Buick added special black trim to the dash, console, and doors. Also included were many luxury items such as A/C, PW, PDL, ETR cassette stereo, tilt steering column, leather-wrapped steering wheel, right remote mirror, and cruise control. The blacked-out grille and headlamp doors, borrowed from the Regal Sport Coupe's decor package, were also added. The cars were then sent to an outside contractor for the addition of the GN package.
Originally intended for a run of 100 units, Cars and Concepts of Auburn Hills, Michigan, retrofitted 215 Regals with the GN package. Most obvious was the light silver gray firemist paint added to each side. Red pinstripes and billboard shadow lettering proclaiming "BUICK" were applied. The wheel opening moldings and rocker panel moldings were blacked out using black vinyl tape. Finally, a front air dam and rear spoiler were installed.
The 1982 Regal Grand National is sometimes considered not to be a "real" GN because it is so visually different and most were not turbocharged. The truth is the '84 model (There was no GN for 1983) is very similar the '82. Two very major changes were made. The exterior was completely blacked-out and the turbocharged engine, now with sequential fuel injection, became standard. All other changes were either regular production Regal updates (grille, taillights, instrument panel, etc.) or minor, such as larger, but similar-style rims. The rear spoiler, air dam, Lear-Seiglar seats, black dash trim, GN emblems, and the many luxury options were all carried over to the '84 GN. While not on par with the later black GN's, the 82's performance and handling were certainly adequate at the time. With only 215 produced, this is a special car indeed!

Rich, the guy I bought my Cutlass from, has one of these. It's not fast like the later Grand Nationals, but the styling and detailing in and out is VERY cool.

I sent him a copy of the posting. Would not be surprised if he calls on the car. He LOVES odd G-body cars....and all G-bodies in general.

I appreciate the interest, but it is not mine. You will have to contact Mark via the information in the ad. I asked him to sign in a post on this forum.

I don't do the early cars.. just the 86/87s. BUT IF someone is interested it may help if he posted more info on the car .. He can also try "turbobuick" & "turbobuicks".

The car runs great. The interior is really good. The car is extremely solid, NO swiss cheese in the metal. This is the first GN that was made, none in 83's and in 84 GN's went black. The car is really awsome, dont have the time or money to finsh the car. 58,000 miles.


Thanks for the update Mark. If you want me to post pictures for you send them to me and I can do it.

Werent the pre GNs called T-Types?
Pre GN (& T-Type) they were called Turbo Sport Coupes. The T-Type (Touring) became an option in the early '80s which added sporty looks & handling items to a Regal with turbocharging being a separate option. So, all 1984-1987 GNs were turbocharged and they were built right alongside T-Types (Turbo T in '87) which were either turbo V6 or normally aspirated.
