BaT Auction: 7k-Mile 1987 Buick Regal T-Type
This 1987 Buick Regal T-Type reportedly remained with the original owner until 2003 and now shows just 7k miles. A turbocharged 3.8L V6 sends power to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission and optional limited-slip differential. The T-Type shares its drivetrain with the Grand National but omits the black paint, trim, and grey interior in favor of a color pallette from the regular Buick lineup. This example is finished in dark blue over blue velour and is equipped with T-tops, a “Concert Sound” stereo system, cruise control, A/C, and factory 15″ alloy wheels. This T-Type was acquired by the selling dealer from the third owner in 2018, and it is now being offered with the original window sticker, sales invoice, manuals, a clean Carfax, and a clean Pennsylvania title.
The exterior is finished in Dark Blue Metallic (31) with a black grille, black headlight surrounds, and chrome bumpers. The 15″ cast aluminum wheels are not shared with the Grand National and are still fitted with original tires on this example. Like the Grand National, Regal T-Type features a cowl-induction hood with a power bulge.
This car is equipped with T-tops, and the Buick-logo T-top storage bags are pictured in the gallery. The car retains stock badging, including “3.8 SFI Turbo” on the power bulge and trunk lid. “T” logo badges are present on both front fenders.
The cabin is trimmed in blue velour with matching carpets, and the 3-spoke wheel carries the “T” logo. The seller notes that the A/C is operational, and interior power features are said to work correctly.
Just 7,107 miles are currently shown on the mechanical odometer, a handful of which were added by the seller.
The passenger side of the dash features a black insert with the Buick Regal name, and the car retains the stock “Concert Sound” stereo system, shifter handle, and instrumentation. The stock floor mats, a set of rubber floor mats, and the T-top bags are pictured in the trunk in the gallery.
The turbocharged 3.8L V6 is shared with the Grand National and was factory-rated at 245 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission and an optional limited-slip differential. The previous owner replaced the ignition coils, but the original coils are included. No performance modifications are noted, and the car retains the stock turbocharger heat shielding and Buick logo hood pad.
The original window sticker has been laminated and is included, and a copy of the sales invoice showing the original option is attached in the gallery. Original MSRP was $18,344, and the invoice indicates that $15,116 was the sale price for the original owner.
The Carfax begins reporting in 2000 when the car showed 5,675 miles, with regular updates through the present day. A 1990 service record shows 3,709 miles when the car was serviced at the dealer to address a brake switch recall. No accidents or other issues are indicated.
