1987 BUICK GNX









1987 Buick GNX
Chassis no. 1G4GJ1171HP452230
5,480 miles from new, untouched and original!!
The GNX was the ultimate American car in the eighties. The turbocharged, intercooled V-6 was rated at 276hp and 360 lb-ft torque. It was seriously under-rated. Many changes to cope with the power and torque were made to the drivetrain and chassis including a specially programmed 200 R4 Hydramatic transmission, special differential, rear axle Panhard bar and torque-resisting ladder bar. Buick advertised the GNX as the fastest accelerating production car in the world at the time and no one who has driven one will ever doubt the claim. These cars are breathtakingly, blindingly fast. Yet, because of the adaptability of their turbocharged engines they are perfectly satisfactory, comfortable, well-mannered drivers around town and in traffic. The legendary “Little Old Lady from Pasadena” would have appreciated the GNX’s attributes. Not surprisingly Hall of Fame Baseball Great, Reggie Jackson appreciated them, too, and when the one he had bought new burned in the 1988 fire he kept his eye out for one to replace it. This is that car. It is all original, with just 5,480 miles from new and is number 12 of the 529 built. Reggie liked it so much that when he found it down in Costa Mesa he traded a Sub Lime Green, black billboard 340 Six Pack ‘Cuda straight across for it. Like all GNXs it’s loaded, including air conditioning, cassette stereo, power windows, power locks, power steering and brakes.
