1986 Buick Grand National (Darth Vader)

Last updated Dec 3, 2011  

Photo of a 1986 Buick Grand National (Darth Vader)


I've wanted one of these for a long time. Sure, I'm a Chevy man, but sometimes there are those special cars that you just KNOW you want, if and when the right one comes along at the right price. Well, last week, it happened. A customer at my shop happened to mention that a friend of his was selling an '86 Grand National, and asked if ! would ask around if anyone might be interested. I took the info on the car and thought it over for a couple of days..... Then I made a phone call and then Kate and I took the 2 hour drive to check the car out. As the pictures show, it turned out to be a great car. We discussed price, struck a deal, and came home with the newest addition to our garage - and one I don't have to do a damn thing to!


3.8 liter (231 ci) Turbocharged, Intercooled V-6 ("chipped")
4-Speed automatic Overdrive Transmission
245 h.p.
335 lb. ft. Torque
0-60: 4.1 Seconds
1/4 Mile: 12.7 Seconds

Factory Options

I know the power sunroof was an option, but I'm not sure of some of the other goodies like the digital dashboard, power seat, power windows, power locks, power antenna, electronic climate control, etc.

The car still has all the books with it, and it even has an emergency crank in case the sunroof motor goes out with the roof open!


The ignition has been "Chipped", and it has a higher stall converter.
