    WTT/WTS 86 Buick Grand National

    Testing the waters to see what kind of action I get...
    86 Grand National currently wearing an 87 grill (have the 86 grill too). I'm doing this from memory so I will miss a few things no doubt. First of all I am going to say it needs a trans rebuild as it is flaring up at the shift points under WOT, otherwise shifts fine. It also needs bumper fillers (which I may replace anyway), a little body work (assorted door dings, etc accumulated over 22 years), d/s door hinge pins and paint. The car is essentially rust free. As with most mid 80's GM cars the power antenna doesn't work. TITLE IS CLEAN AND IN MY POSSESSION. Carfax will show that all is well, NO issues.

    Here's what it has:

    Engine/Exhaust:
    -rebuilt about 3k miles ago
    -.020 JE forged pistons
    -204/214 cam (mild - step up from stock)
    -ported heads with Cometic gaskets and ARP headbolts
    -steel center main caps
    -double roller timing set
    -60# mototron injectors
    -TurboTweak chip (the best chip going)
    -3" LT-1 MAF and translator
    -160* t-stat with billet neck
    -Caspers cam sensor cap
    -3" ATR downpipe
    -Turbonetics Evolution wastegate with in-car adjustability
    -test pipe with cutout
    -Hooker 2.5" catback
    -hotwired Walbro fuel pump

    Suspension:
    -ROH 17" wheels with NEW (maybe 300 miles on them) Bridgestone RE750 tires; 235/45-17 front; 275/40-17 rear
    -Savitske Classic and Custom Stage 2 Street Comp with lightweight adjustable upper a-arms
    -Eibach springs
    -Koni adjustable shocks
    -completely rebuilt f/e with polygraphite bushings and Global West adjuster sleeves and Del-a-lum lower a-arm bushings
    -front frame braces (F-41 braces)
    -rear seat braces
    -1" Spohn rear sway bar.
    -Basically this car handles like a mo-fo and is lowerd about 3" front, 1.5" rear.

    Other (here's where I will miss some stuff for sure:
    -COLD a/c
    -Rebuilt G-80 rear
    -F-body aluminum radiator
    -Converted to vacuum brake system (much more reliable that stock Powermaster)
    -aluminum rear drum brakes with sticky shoes.
    -Currently running stock turbo and i/c but the motor was built to handle much more.
    -p/w, pdl, tilt wheel
    -Sony CD player
    -buickgn.com billet shifter handle

    I'm sure I will need to add a few things. Car is located in the Hunteredon/Somerset/Warren county vicinity in NJ. I would trust it to drive just about anywhere. I am possibly looking to trade for a 98-02 SS or WS-6 or maybe even the right LT-1 powered SS or WS-6 or will sell for $10k/obo. I'll just throw it out there that a 70 C-10 shortbed, 67 Chevy II or 70.5 Firebird/Trans Am are also on the list....let's see what you have.

    Pics are in sig...most recent ones are on the last pages of the 86 Grand National album

    No, I will be listing it there today probably. I really would prefer to just trade for an LSX powered car rather than sell and buy, just seems easier. Plus, it's kiling me to sell it. I love the car but there are so many cars on my must have list. It's just time to move on.

    BTW, I forgot to add that the car has new a/c parts and blows ICE COLD. So you can stay comfy while beating up on Mustangs.

    Really hoping for a WS6 or SS. I've had a bit of interest but little follow through so far.

    Chassis Mileage?

    I am very interested, just curious about the chassis mileage. Am I missing where you put the actual mileage of the car? It also appears that you have gone through some different stages of your Wheels/Tire packages. Are any of the old picture wheels available? I like the recent ones (ROH) best, but curious if the car comes with extra wheels?

    I knew I forgot stuff. The body/chassis has about 133k miles on it. The engine rebuild and suspension have about 3K. The rear is probably about 10k or so since the rebuild.
    The only wheels that come with the car are the ROH's on it now. I sold the wheels it came with to buy the GTA's. I cleaned up the GTA's and painted them then sold them to buythe ROH's.
    The car would include whatever parts I have laing around, but unfortunately that does not include any extra wheels.
    Let me know if I can supply any more info.

    PM's have been sent. BTW, I found a grounding strap hanging from the firewall the other day while poking around in the garage. These things are very quirky and a bad ground COULD be the cause of the trans issue. I will be buying a ground stretcher kit to alleviate the grounding problem. Who knows. Either way this trans, as far as I know, is stock...I make no guarantees.
