Description

Lot #1233 - This very special 1987 GNX has never been road registered and shows 287 miles from new. One of 547 built, Buick authorized a limited run of this GNX. Built by ASC/McLaren, the builders of the 24-valve Buick turbo V6 engines for Indy, the GNX used a 276bhp, 231cid turbocharged and intercooled V6 engine with sequential multi-port electronic fuel injection, GM Turbo Hydramatic 200-4R automatic transmission with overdrive, independent front suspension with unequal length A-arms, coil springs and anti-roll bar, live rear axle with 4-link rear suspension including coil springs and stabilizer bar and front disc, rear drum hydraulic brakes. Larger tires, special alloy wheels, a rear-axle torque arm and a Panhard bar plus a stiffer frame were GNX-specific upgrades. Front fender vents and special analog instruments completed the package, which also included fully loaded factory options. This vehicle was previously displayed at the Auto & Technik Museum in Sinheim, Germany and a former part of the UK's Hooper Corporation Collection.
