The First Grand National
In 1982 Buick wanted to capitalize on the '81 and '82 wins in the NASCAR Grand National Series and so it planned a run of only 100 Regal Grand Nationals. Cars & Concepts, ended up retrofitting 215 '82 Regals. The Grand Nationals sported red pinstriping, two-tone grey paint, blacked out wheel openings and rocker panels, a new front air-dam, and a new front splitter on the outside, and a pair of silver cloth/black leather seats Lear-Siegler seats on the inside.
Power came from a naturally aspirated 4.1L V6 that made a paltry 125hp.
