This Is The Last Buick Grand National Ever Built

Classic Cars / Comments

And its going to auction.

The Buick of 2021 is a company that focuses squarely on SUVs. The last Buick sedan, the Regal, has been dead for a while now, and with it went the brand's long and proud history of building cool sedans. So the current lineup might be appealing to soccer moms and police department accountants, but old-school Buick fans know that the glory days ended with the G platform Buick Grand National. This square piece of 1980s glory has become a living legend, and pristine examples can fetch ridiculous prices. This example, on auction through Barrett-Jackson, has to be the best of the bunch. Why? It's the last one ever produced.

This very car represents a ton of milestones in the history of Buick, and GM as a whole. As the last ever Buick Grand National to roll off the line, this car saw the end of General Motors' midsize rear-wheel-drive G Platform, and was also one of the last cars manufactured at GM's Pontiac Michigan assembly plant which had been in operation since 1927.

To make things even better, this very car was the subject of extensive documentation in 1987 and was filmed and photographed leaving the plant. The line workers even signed the engine and undercarriage as the car was being assembled. As the last of its kind, Buick added an additional badge to the car's header panel. This car went on to star in the 2012 film "BLACK AIR: The Buick Grand National Documentary" and is signed by Lloyd and Mark Reuss, the former and current presidents of General Motors.

The car has been meticulously maintained and looked after and spends its time in a climate-controlled storage area. All the factory-installed interior plastic is still in place, and the odometer shows only 33 miles. Under the hood rests a tried and trusted 3.8-liter V6 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. The black exterior is matched by a gray interior that is in perfect condition. The vehicle is on auction at no reserve, but be prepared to pay top dollar.
