It’s T-USEDay once again, and we’re looking at a 1982 Buick Regal T-Type located in Lebanon, PA.
This 1982 Buick Regal T-Type has been in the possession of the seller since 1997 and it has been meticulously maintained and garage kept since then. Being 38 years old and collecting 61,034 original miles, this car definitely shows how well it was maintained over the years with only minor blemishes throughout the car.
On the exterior, this 1982 Buick Regal T-Type sports a pretty rare two-tone color scheme (code Y44) featuring Dark Blue (code 29) paired with Silver (code 16). Also included from the factory in this Decor Package are black headlamp trim, black tail lamp trim, a black painted grille, and black windshield wiper arms and blades to name a few. Optional on this car are the Grand National Wheels which are the originals from the factory and still look great. Wrapping those “like-new” Grand National Wheels is a brand new set of Cobra Radial G/T Tires that are ready to hit the streets. Other notable components on this car are the chrome trim which all looks to be in “like-new” condition as well.
In the interior, this car holds true to the clean state of the exterior. The interior features a bucket seat & console configuration finished in Navy Blue. Upfront, the car retains its original Sport Steering Wheel (part of the Y44 Decor Package), an automatic transmission, and original AM/FM Radio with Tape Deck. The car’s dash is also in impeccable condition with only a few minor cracks, nothing a new reproduction dashtop can’t fix. On the unfortunate side, the fuel gauge stopped working some time ago and hasn’t worked properly since.
Under the hood is what makes this car special and puts the T in T-Type. We’re speaking of course about the 3.8L Turbo V6 producing 180hp and 290 ft-lb of torque! Now you may be asking why this makes this car special, especially in today’s world where turbos are quite common. Well in 1982, the Regal Sport Coupe, along with the LeSabre Sport Coupe, were the only two turbocharged standard production cars built in America. Furthermore, during a time of soaring gas prices, the little engine promised the economy of a V6 and the performance of a V8 which was definitely a tempting selling point.
What are your thoughts on this 1982 Buick Regal T-Type found in Lebanon, PA? The seller is asking for $10,600. Do you think the $10,600 price tag is worth it?
