1987 Buick Regal TType Tribute Description

I am selling with very deep regrets my 1987 Buick T-TYPETribute with over 11K just put in the engine and upgrades 300 miles ago. Builtby well-known Alamo Speed Shop here in San Antonio, TX. This is a great car can can't be built for the price. I drive the car at least once a week to car shows and kids events.

History The T-Type was a series of Buick automobiles thatwere popular during the 1980s. This marketing approach for Buick products was arevival of a similar approach used in the 1960s with the Buick GS designation.These T-Type cars were built as performance-oriented models and the most famousof these cars was the Buick GN and the T Type, which was based on the Regalplatform. During the time that the T-Type cars were in production,turbochargers were all the rage in Detroit and adapted for use on the Regal,most notably. The T-Type series reached its peak in 1987. In addition, itsturbocharged V6 made it an attractive alternative to its similar-bodiedV8-powered siblings, such as the Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS and Oldsmobile 442(neither of which had the turbocharger available to them). The one is a completere-creation of a 1987 Buick T Type. It is well done with appearance andperformance parts from an original Grand National. Features & Options Theturbocharged engines in ours was General Motors' famous 3.8 L V6 engine with anautomatic. The entire drivetrain was taken from a real Turbo Buick andtransplanted in this Regal! This engine produced 245 horsepower at 4400 rpm and355 lbs/ft of torque at 2800 rpm stock but has a lot more power available withits upgrades. They include a much larger Garrett A/R 60 M24 Turbo, largerIntercooler, aftermarket up pipe, aftermarket down pipe, 3 inch customstainless dual exhaust with a capped dump pipe, dual electric cooling systemfans with a 180 degree thermostat, Lucas 5208008 30-40 psi fuel injectors,Waldron electric fuel pump, coil voltage booster, RJC racing intake manifoldair divider, Turbo Tweak 5.6 Computer Chip, aftermarket oil coolers, and a ScanMaster 2.1 with Red Display. The Electronic Control Module (ECM) preciselymatches the fuel delivery to engine requirements. The source of the LC2'smonster power is by the new Ball Bearing Turbo aided by an intercooler. TheGN's intercooler cools the air coming from the turbo as it travels to theengine. Aiding engine performance for this Buick is its free-flow dual exhaustsystem. The LC2 motor was computerized, so it is no surprise that even the highperformance 200R4 (4 speed with overdrive) automatic transmission had its shiftpoints computer controlled to get optimum power from the engine to the pavement.The transmission in this Buick is the original GN or T Type trans with the codeBRZ on it. (See Photo of Tag.) This transmission worked so well, that Buicknever saw the need for offering a manual transmission. The engine compart isamazing and clean. It is very detailed and will be a focal point of any showyou go to, especially seeing the Turbo and all its plumbing. The interior ofthis T-Type car has a grey bench seat with a fold down consolette and a columnshifter and matching rear seat. It has PW, Air, upgraded sound system,accessory sport gauge pillar pods, and more, factory air conditioning convertedto modern 134A Freon, power windows and door locks, cruise control, and tiltsteering wheel. Check out the trunk, which is nicely detailed, and you will seean upgraded Sony sound system feeding new speakers. The rear spoiler was onlyavailable as a dealer installed option and is on this Buick. The T-Type emblemsare placed on the fenders and hood and on the horn button. This Buick rides ona suspension that has received a performance upgrade to help keep the powerfirmly planted to the pavement. This anti-roll bars, coil over air bag springs,boxed rear control arms with poly bushings, performance shock absorbers, andBuick GNX style wheels with 215’s performance tires on the front and 235’s onthe rear to give it the right stance. It even has a real 3.42 Buick T-TypePositraction rear end. Availability It may not be a real T Type, but this onehas sure got the look and the performance.
