1987 Buick Regal Turbo T LimitedFOR SALE is a clean and rare 87 Buick Regal Turbo T Limited with only 87k original miles. There were only 1035 of the 87 Turbo T Limited produced making it the rarest of the T’s. This one is factory Grey with the Grey Leather interior. Comes with all the original paperwork. It was purchased new at Carney Buick in Hanover MA. on October 29th 1986 for $18,968.
The interior is CLEAN. The rear seat looks absolutely new. The headliner is perfect. The leather steering wheel is near perfect. The tilt column is as tight as new. The door panels are nice.The front leather seats are in good shape. The only real obvious wear is on the small piping on the outside edge of the drivers seat right at the bottom and just above the power seat switch. The drivers power seat works perfect. The plastic dash filler in between the dash and the windshield has some cracks (Very Common in these cars). The carpet is near perfect (some dirt on drivers side) and is the original deep carpet that came in only in the Limited. The power windows and door locks work fine. The factory landau top is in good shape but does have some cracking. The body is very solid. The original floor pans are solid. I took the carpet out to clean it and was very happy to see the floors were solid. The trunk is solid and very clean complete with all the original spare tire, jack and handle. The stainless trim is in great shape. Some of the aluminum trim could use a refinish due to some visual defects, but no dents. These are minor but I want to be thorough in my description. I will do my best to disclose everything so there are no surprises. Overall this is a very nice original clean car. No rust or rot anywhere including door bottoms, rear quarters, floors. Completely Rust free car.
The mechanical condition of this car is near 100% and many parts have been upgraded, rebuilt or replaced. The engine has always had regular oil changes and is absolutely clean and sludge free inside. The engine is strong and trouble free. The trans has been serviced regularly and shifts firmly and operates as new. The wheels are in great shape and have no curb rash (see pics)
The rear axle is the factory (G80) posi unit with the 3.42 gears. The fluid and posi additive were changed and the rear operates as new.

Comes with most original parts that may have been removed such as the powermaster, MAP, etc. It needs a new Rear Filler, was going to put on a spoolfool one piece. The included powermaster you can get 125 from kirbans as a trade in towards anything so was going to use that to buy a one piece rear filler. Fronts are new as of a few years ago. AC stopped working a couple years ago, its still the original freon so never got it filled or converted. The exhaust hangers at the rear need to be replaced or re-welded but the pipes don't seem to sag at all.
