Untouched 1987 Buick GNX With Only 18 Miles Since New!
This is quite an incredible find, with this GNX having only done 18 miles in 29 years. Essentially, it is as a brand-new car as it was back in 1987.
The car has been stored in a garage since 1987 and has never had a license plate installed.
The car is #435 of 547, as it was from the factory and comes with the original order sheet, original window sticker, original books and manuals, all the interior plastics and covers, basically everything you would expect from a new car of the day.
The GNX results were a rarity in any case, but to find a time capsule like this is rare for any vehicle.
If you’re looking for a vehicle investment or you are a Buick or GNX fan, this is the car for you.

‘In 1987, Buick introduced the Limited Production GNX “Grand National Experimental”. Produced by McLaren Performance Technologies/ASC,
Buick produced only 547 with the Grand National interior trim Package.
They were then sent off to McLaren Performance Technologies and upgraded into what became the legendary Buick GNX.
This was created to be the “Grand National to end all Grand Nationals.” Changes made included a special Garrett T-3 turbocharger with a ceramic-impeller blowing through a more efficient and significantly larger capacity intercooler with a “CERMATEL (Ceramic/Aluminum) coated” pipe connecting the intercooler to the engine. A GNX specific E-EPROM, low-restriction exhaust with dual mufflers, reprogrammed Turbo Hydramatic 200-4R transmission with a custom torque converter and transmission cooler, and unique differential cover/panhard bar included more of the performance modifications. Exterior styling changes include vents located on each front fender, 16 inch black mesh style wheels with VR-speed rated tires, and deletion of the hood and fender emblems. The interior changes of the GNX included a serial number on the dash plaque and a revised instrument cluster providing analog Stewart-Warner gauges, including an analog turbo boost gauge. The GNX used a unique torque arm that was mounted to a special, GNX only, rear differential cover, for increased traction. The torque arm rear suspension alters the suspension geometry, making the body lift while planting the rear tires down, resulting in increased traction.
The stealthy appearance of the all-black GNX and Grand National (and the resemblance of its grill to his helmet’s mouthpiece), coupled with the fact that the Grand National was initially released during the popularity of Star Wars movies, earned it the title “Darth Vader’s Car”. Car and Driver covered the GNX model’s introduction with the headline “Lord Vader, your car is ready.” Due to the six cylinder engine, the Buick make, and the black paint Grand Nationals were sometimes referred to as the “Dark Side”. The “Dark Side” contrasted with the more common V8 Mustangs and Camaros that were popular at the time.’
