1987 Buick Grand National

Selling My Grand National 87, owned it for eight years, it was enjoyable, but also lots of efforts, throughout the time, working throughout numerous of projects on this car, as an enthusiast. Had done a ton of research to find and install best aftermarket products, invested nearly 28 thousands in parts, have the receipts. This GN is unique in its model, it features power windows, power lock-and-unlock doors, and rare astro roof, about 2560 units came with this option. I had modified the car for higher performance yet keeping it stock for street use. The car may require work on paint along replacing weatherstrip seals, and step up for standalone ProEFI or XFI tune (now running on older Accel gen 6 after-market ecu), drives really fast though. All fluids newly changed due to modified setups, coolant fluid, transmission, engine, brakes (few months ago). Changed battery for Optima 34/78 (1000 cold amp cranking power) and 200-amp alternator. And also, installed with new AC compressor and condenser, and AC accumulator, converted and charged with R134a, cools nice. Some upgrades had been installed when I bought the car, which were to the engine, like hardened piston push rods. Modifications that I have worked on, and what were installed before:
