Grand National fans this is the one you want: A no-excuses, original, unmodified survivor with the exception of a chromed heat shield under hood. You can buy $30-40K versions all day long, but they are either well worn, beat to death or so heavily modified the value is greatly diminished. This car is as close to a new one you may find, 35 years after it rolled off the assembly line. Comes with the original window sticker, dealership brochure, owners manuals, and receipts.
With GNX versions selling north of $200,000 now, and "average" 87 Grand Nationals in the $40K range, now is the time to grab a really good one like this before they cross the six-figure line. It is inevitable; these cars were a huge hit when new because of their strikingly good looking appearance and impressive power. The turbocharged, intercooled 231.4 cubic inch OHV V-6 features port fuel-injection, 245 hp @ 4400 rpm and 355 lb-ft @ 2000 rpm, connected to a 4-speed automatic. While that may not sound like much when compared to todays performance cars, the truth is, these cars embarrassed some of the Supercars of the day and would smoke the majority of the 1960's muscle cars. They are STILL impressive today. Race track announcers professed "Here come the computer cars!" as modified versions tore up the 1/8th and 1/4 mile tracks.
This car has nothing to prove. It speaks for itself, it is in the investment category, and a piece of American automotive history to be protected and admired. If you have been holding out for a really good one, this is it. Financing and shipping available.
