Before the Regal, Buick had already proven their capability to build personal luxury cars, being the very first in the entire GM division to do so when they released the Riviera in 1963. Buick however felt like they could do better, and introduced the first generation Regal in 1973. While the car was successful, it would forever go on to live in the shadows of its predecessor, with the second-gen Regal becoming one of the most popular cars to ever come out of a Buick factory. This generation of the Regal lasted 10 years and was offered in an array of trim levels, one of which was the Buick Regal Limited as featured here. As for the example in question, reports suggests that it has just 34,000 miles on its engine, which would make it a treasure for any Buick enthusiast
In 1981, the Regal received a facelift that made it much more aerodynamically capable than before, so much so, that the car became a NASCAR favorite, and was driven to victory by Richard Petty in the 1981 Daytona 500. This 1986 Buick Regal Limited shows off those body lines perfectly thanks to its exceptional gloss black paint. Being the 'Limited' trim, this car received an abundance of chrome treatment, from the front grille, exhaust tips, bumpers and even framing of the wheel arches. Thus, the Regal Limited was meant to stand out as the epitome of Buick luxury. You won't find many examples in this condition today. The vehicle sits on a set of multi-spoke rims that are wrapped in Goodyear Integrity tires. While the Regal Limited does impress from the outside, the interior is a topic of its own. With plush bench-style seating in a beautiful royal burgundy color that is complemented by color matching leather and fine varnish accents, the car really captures 80s style luxury. Everything from the dash panel to the floormats on this car has been color-matched and maintained to perfection. This example also has air conditioning and a period-correct Delco radio cassette with those glorious sliders and knobs that are oh-so-coveted on Eighties stereo systems.
This 1986 Buick Regal Limited is powered by a 5.0L OHV V8 that sends drive to the rear wheels via an automatic transmission, ideal for a stately cruise befitting such a vehicle.
