METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED REGAL, GRAY-MARKET CAR, LOW OWNERSHIP, VINTAGE A/C, A++!
This might just be the nicest 1985 Buick Regal we've ever seen. In the 1980s, these were ubiquitous on the streets, but when was the last time you saw one, never mind one that's virtually showroom new? Offering a handsome color combination, an extensive (and expensive) list of service receipts, and incomparable '80s luxury, this is an awesome throwback to a simpler time that's very attractively priced.
The books call this "Light Brown Metallic" but it's a wonderful shade of gold that looks very upscale on the crisply folded Regal sheetmetal. These were really good looking cars back in the day, offering both a formal roofline and sporty long hood/short deck styling that really worked well. The paint is about as close to showroom new as you'll fine and if there are flaws, they were put there by the factory. Sure, it's been driven, but there's very little evidence of it and you'll be pleasantly surprised by just how good build quality was in 1985. Those big doors close with ease and thanks to healthy rubber weather seals, the interior is as quiet as a tomb. A single contrasting pinstripe runs the length of the body to add a little flair and it's kind of nice to see one of these without the usual vinyl half-roof. And in contrast to all those blacked-out Grand Nationals that you see at every show, this one proudly wears a ton of chrome, all of which sparkles like the day it was built.
The interior is pretty much like new. Someone has spent a great deal of care making it that way, treating every component with a white-gloves. Today it's almost impossible to see where anyone's posterior has been, because the driver's seat is firm, the steering wheel is like new, and there's not even a little depression where you'd rest your elbow on the center armrest. That console is a rather rare find in a Regal and it's just another part of what makes this car special. The only alterations from stock are those that you'll appreciate, including a new Sony AM/FM/CD/satellite head unit (the original radio is included with the car) and a brand new $5000 Vintage Air A/C system, since this car wasn't ordered with factory A/C. You also get a giant trunk with its original mats and spare tire.
Buick's indestructible 3.8 liter V6 provides plenty of grunt in the upscale Regal and is as silky smooth as you'd expect. It has been properly maintained since it was new, so everything works like it should and the car starts, idles, and runs superbly. There are a few new parts, most notably a fresh radiator and exhaust system, all intended to make this car as good as it can possibly be for a very fastidious owner. The engine bay is spotless, another indication that this car has been well-maintained, and you can drive this car with confidence just as you might have in 1985. The 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission shifts beautifully and the tall overdrive and highway gears out back make this a super highway cruiser ready for a road trip. As you'd expect, it's ultra-sanitary underneath and those handsome Buick road wheels were just installed at a cost of over $1100, completing the look.
Complete with owner's manuals, maintenance records, and a clean AutoCheck, this is a time capsule of a Buick that delivers the authentic 1985 experience all over again. Call today!
