Basic Info

1987 Buick Regal Turbo with Y56 “T” Package. This car has been in our family since 1995, I think my dad was the second owner and I am the third. Car has 62,8xx original miles. We have put about 5k on it since 1995. Looks fabulous and is wicked fast. Car has been in a heated and cooled garage for the last 30 years. Very solid car, absolutely no rust. Was repainted by previous owner in the early 90’s due to hail damage. Paint job wasn’t perfect when it was done (about an 8/10) but has held up very well. Interior is in fantastic shape.

Full option code list is shown in the pictures, but does include: reclining buckets, bright rocker panel and bodyside moldings, delay wiper, rear window defog, AC, full length console, cruise and tilt.

Less than 200 miles on heads, intake, IC, injectors, turbo and all new front suspension. Transmission has a shift kit, shifts hard and clean.

Not So Good Stuff

The repaint does have a couple of noticeable flaws, biggest being about a 3” swirl in the trunk lid. The rear wheel trim is a little bent up from rolling the fender lips. The hoodliner is not in the best shape – I left it laying face up for a year or more while working on the car. All air conditioning parts are on the car, but we have not used AC in 20 years. Power antenna does not work.

I’ve taken this car to the track four times, primarily for test and tune, expect for two head to head races at Ford vs Buick. Has not been to the track since I installed heads, injectors, ecm, turbo and IC.

The “Real” Stuff

Price is $29,500. I have almost all the original parts, except for the original turbo. Clean and clear title. Would consider partial trade of ~50hp diesel tractor with loader. Central Kanas, right off I-70; delivery available. Call or txt Ryan 785 820 1931
