1979 Buick Regal TURBO COUPEREGAL SPORT COUPERARE 3.8 TURBORUST FREE19K MILE TITLEVERY CLEAN
Here is a car that you will not find every day. There are quite a few Buick Grand Nationals available for sale but very few Sport Coupes. This is a completely rust free, uper solid survivor that, side from a quick cleaning, s in the condition I got it. This car shows 19k miles on the odometer and I got this car from the largest auction company in America and bought it as 'original miles'. I have an original mile title and the odometer on the car cannot be disputed. That being said and having been around cars for a very long time, here is literally no way this has just 19k miles. The car is clean, traight and solid but definitely not a 19k mile vehicle. What IS of value is that this car is rare and desirable and with a mild restoration, ou could definitely have yourself what could be seen as a 19k mile car. Take into consideration that IF you could find one of these to restore, ou will likely find one with corrosion issues, higher mileage title or an 'exempt' title or a 'not actual mileage' title. All decrease the value of the car. The photos tell the story, lease review all 65+ of them including several shots of the undercarriage which still shows original 'chalk markings' on the suspension and brake components and even an original stamp on the frame. You will notice that the metal underneath is 'brown', hat is not rust or corrosion, ust the color untreated metal turns when wet, did not want to 'rattle-can' it all in black, hat would have decreased the integrity of the cars condition.
The body of the car is really straight aside from a couple of small door dings, o major dents at all. Someone 'touched up' the hood around the turbo-hump (poorly) at some point in it's life but there are no damage or corrosion issues. The half Landau top is intact but showing it's age, o major tears or deterioration but you can see it's starting to 'check'. Glass is decent, inor wear on the windshield, ides and rears have a light film on them which can easily be steamed off. Hankook white-wall tires are in great shape with 80% tread life remaining and the factory wheels are in good shape and all intact aside from one missing center cap. Bumpers are straight and chrome is average, did not notice any real pitting or fading.
The interior is very, ery clean. It was not a smokers car so there are no foul odors or any burns at all. There are a few splits in the dash pad, ou will notice the fabric is worn in the center in front of the arm rest and there is some wear on the driver's side bolster near the top but all intact. Door panels are intact and clean and are missing the smal caps that finish the door pulls. Carpets are nice and clean, eadliner is intact with no sagging, he driver's visor has a couple of splits in it. Rear seating area looks as if there has rarely been anyone back there, t's all clean and intact. Gauges look to all be in working order as does the backlighting on the cluster. It has a Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo (the only non-stock item on the car). The A/C and heat controls are all there but there is no power to the fan, on't know what it may be, use?
The car starts up very quickly, oes not smoke and does not appear to have any leaks (no smell of oil when driving). The engine is quiet, o valve noise or lower end noises. It runs quite well but obviously the car could use some tuning up, have no idea how long it's been sitting but it does get down the road okay, ransmission shifts nicely and the power steering is functioning as well.
All in all, ou won't find another car that is this clean and solid. It is definitely worthy of a restoration but you could clean up a few things cosmetically and have a nice driver. Either way, he clean clear low mileage title and the overall condition of the car makes it worth far more than what I am asking, think it's cheap at this price as I watch other Turbo cars sell from 10k on up. I will consider reasonable offers from real buyers. Please call me at (480)326-9885. I am happy to assist with transport as well. Thanks for looking.
