While your average person might think there’s nothing special about a Buick, real gearheads are well aware of the mad scientist engineering the brand was experimenting with back in the ‘80s. Cars like this 1987 Buick Regal Limited T-Type really ruffled the feathers as they not only took the fight to Mopar and Ford models, but also gave Corvettes at the time some stiff competition.
This particular Regal Limited T-Type has a smooth and appropriately subtle presentation. The gray paint matches well with the code W02 Blackout Package, adding a sinister edge to the coupe. While the power dome on the hood helps give away this isn’t just your average Regal, it’s not so flashy that this Buick can be considered a sleeper. Of course, the small “T” badge on both front fenders will indicate to the most observant just what’s under the hood. The whole thing rolls on classic 15-inch alloy wheels, setting the proper tone.
By far the most compelling part of this Detroit steel is the 3.8-liter LC2 turbocharged V6 nestled into the engine compartment. It’s in factory condition, plus has been detailed to showroom quality. Paired to the engine is a 2004R 4-speed automatic, which transitions gears with speed and grace. Helping with that solid acceleration is a 3.42 rear end.
As a true Buick luxury car, this thing has a plush interior. Soft gray leather, blue-gray carpeting, plus factory gauges and dash immerse you in the coolness of the 1980s. There’s even an AM/GM/cassette stereo with graphic equalizer. Amenities like power locks, power windows, cruise control, AC, center console and tilt steering wheel adjustment are also included for your comfort.
Most people have heard of the legendary Grand Nationals from the 1980s, which were potent cars, but they’re far more common than the Regal Limited T-Type. That makes this car from Streetside Classics far more collectible and compelling, as it would be the perfect addition to a discerning gearhead’s collection. Considering there’s a mere 33,801 miles on this car, plus it comes with all maintenance records and the original documentation, adding further to its value.
