I am the 3rd owner of this car. It has 115K miles on it. It has been taken very good care of. The paint is Charcoal Metalic with Grey leather interior. I only drive this car occasionally. Below are some of the mods I have done to the car.
Hot wired pump
Limit Eng. TE-44 Turbo
36# injectors
TH Downpipe
Recently replaced intake gasket that was leaking and also oil pan gasket with a cork one from Kirbans and neoprene rear main seal as well as new motor mounts and tranny mount. No leaks!!
Exhaust has been replaced with factory replacement
AC compressor and accumulator and AC hoses have been replaced as well as new power steering pump all from GM
Installed cold air kit
LT-1 valve springs
LT-1 3" Mass air flow sensor with Translator Plus & Turbo Tweak chip from Eric For the setup I have. Runs very well.
Voltmaster
Oil pressure and boost guages in pillar pod
High volume Oil Pressure kit installed. 60 lbs. cruising at 55 mph
Fuel pressure guage on fuel rail
Adjustable fuel pressure regulator
Adjustable wastegate as well as bleed off boost adjustment from inside the car, works great, just turn the knob and raise the boost
Interior is in excellent shape
Almost new tires, Michelin
Rides and drives great.
New coil pack from GM as well as wires and plugs
Transmission shifts great, recently replaced filter and fluid
I have the stock turbo and injectors that were replaced by me.
Have the original concert sound radio that came with the car, it has and aftermarket radio with a 12 disc changer that I mounted in the console, has a 10" sub with a 4-channel amp that sounds really good.
I replaced the T-Top weather strip but still has a minimal leak, which is not bad at all..
The car has been repainted the original color and is in good shape. has a really good shine. Has a lot of clear on it and in a couple of places is trying to curl up around the T-Tops.
Has the factory turbine wheels on it.
Still have the original bags or protectors for the T-Tops when you take them out.
Has the black out chrome trim package on it. Door edge guards have been replaced with aftermarket.
Windows have been lightly tinted.
Has new Mini Starter from GM, gotta luv the sound when cranking
I'm sure I left out something, but that will give you an idea of what I have.
Sorry for the long post...But if anyone is interested I am in south Georgia and your welcome to come and look at the car.
Forgot to mention I have the original folder from the selling dealership that I work at as well as complete documentation from the original owner, he kept very good records as well as all the repair orders that the second owner has since he is the owner of the dealership I work at.
Here is a link to my pictures. If it doesn't work let me know and I'll e-mail them to you. I have reduced the price 1000.00 from 14,900 to 13,900. Come on fella's Its NICE !!

beautiful car! Grey Metallic was one of the nicest colors for a T type!

And the T-tops make it special ! ;)

Good luck moving it!

Very nice car indeed. If you don't mind me asking, what is the paint code for that color? Just trying to see where my Ol Gray falls in the paint colors....code 15 Medium Gray Metallic.

Where are you located? There's a few of us in the SE Ga area....Tifton, Waycross, Ocilla, Douglas, etc. Widely scattered, but we're out here...lol.
 
You're exactly right, the code is 15U and if you need to know the WA code is
WA 8573. I am located in Hawkinsville about 50 miles south of Macon. Thanks for the compliment also. Now someone needs to give this car a home....

Robert
 
That's the paint code......I'll look up the WA code in a bit. Only thing that suprises me is that it's a Limited, but with WO2 trim. Am I correct in guessing that the T-roof and leather are Limited options? I always thought a Limited was landeau top, bright trim, cornering lamps, etc. Just wondering, because if your car is a factory Limited, then it must be sort of a rare bird....which is even better... :biggrin:

BTW.....Ol Gray is an original GA delivery car as well.....Duke Buick in Augusta, GA. I know where Hawkinsville is at....go through it on my way to Reynolds/SDR.

The Limiteds can be optioned with chrome or WO2(blackout) not all have cornering lamps,extra chrome,leather interior ect.
Here is what my daily driver limited on the left looks like, and yes, WO2 on a limited is very rare, less than 300 i believe!
Dont be fooled, yes you are seeing double silver limiteds with WO2 side by side.

limiteds

My car isn't a limited but has landau,all the chrom,and cornering lamps. I go through Hawkinsville going to Twiggs track. Sharp car!
 
Window Sticker

Thanks for the facts input Bryan, didn't know the W02 was less than 300 on the Limited. Lonnie if you will go to my first post and click on the link to the pics of my car I've added a couple of pics of the window sticker to remove all doubt. If you need any more info I'll dig it up for you, like I said I've got all the documentation from day one on this car. I don't know what most of the cars retailed for new but as you can see this one was 19K...

Robert
 
I remember you from Way Bros. I stopped in to get keys cut for my 86 GN and you showed me pix of the car. Sorry you haven't sold it, but glad it is owned by someone who appreciates it!!
 
Oh Damn, it's just what I've wanted since I had been introduced to the world of Turbo Buicks! Now If I only had the money. (Who am I kidding, I'm so broke I can't even pay attention) Would you take a couple of kids in trade? They come with thier very own whip :p

Seriously, If I had it I would buy it. Good luck on the sale. I hope the new owner will take as good of care of it as you have.

Cheers!
 
87 Buick Limited

Hey Zeus,
I don't need any more children, got plenty of those. But I will work some sort of payment plan for you.. How about a down payment then the other half when you pick it up within 7 days... LOL

Thanks for the comments..
Robert
 
ô¿ô Where are you ¿¿¿

I know there is someone out there who needs a really nice car. All you need to do is come and look at it and you will agree...

Thanks Robert
 
Cruiser,
Would you have any photos or a link to photos of the interior? Thanks for your help!
 
Interior Pics

Drip
I don't have any interior pics, but I will get them hopefully this weekend and post them with the other pics in the link in the first post. I'll also take some of the engine compartment.

Thanks for looking,

Robert
 
Haven't been on the board in a while, but suprised to see you haven't sold the Limited. Definitely a beautiful car and as BW pointed out, a rare one indeed. Now I'm torn between doing a clean stock exterior or going with custom paint when I finally get done with the engine rebuild.... :D
 
Still For Sale

Lonnie thanks for the compliments on the car. I am really surprised too. It is too nice of a car to not have sold by now or nobody is looking for a nice car they can drive anywhere anytime. I'll just keep on trying but the weather is getting warmer here in Ga. I might want to keep it after taking the T-Tops out and going for a cruise in the country. When you get through with your motor anf decide which way you are going to go on the paint, post some pics here, I would like to see it.
