1984 Buick Regal T-Type Concept Car
1984 Buick Regal T-Type - Custom Concept Car
Twin Turbocharged Buick Original Buick V-6
That will Turn Your Head
An excerpt from the Bio. of GAIL BANKS
"Then Buick came calling.
They were developing a turbo V6 for an
Indy pace car in '78, and having big problems.
It was based on the old 1950s Buick V6 design,
but unlike Volvo, they were using a carburetor",
says Banks.
It was down on power and running so hot
you could drive at night without headlights.
We helped them figure it out, and
they had an Indy pace car.
Buick returned, working with Banks to build
what would become The father of the Buick Grand National, a Banks twin-turbo 437 bhp Regal.
This is your chance to own the ORIGINAL
one of a kind Buick experimential super engine
that looks & sounds like the grocery getter
but can run in the high 11`s.
This heads up high power street sleeper
is a unique expierence for any speed enthusiast.
This engine was seen in the Nov. 1981
(page 31) & Aug, 1982 (pages 74, 75,&76) issues of
HOT ROD magazine.
It is the one & only ORIGINAL engine of this class
EVER to find it's way to the street.
This engine block was taken off the assembly line
at the Buick Motor Division in Flint, Michigan
even before any serial numbers were stamped
on the block.
The block has no serial numbers on it.
If you can not find copies of the
1981 & 1982 HOT ROD magazines,
some of the engine details are as follows:
Completely Blueprinted,
Buick Heavy Duty Block,
Ported Heavy Duty Cylinder Heads,
Carrillo Rods, Specially ballanced Turbo Crank,
Gail Banks Engineering (GBE)
(843 Commercial Ave. San Gabrial, Ca 91776)

Doug Roe Engineering
(4025 E. Winslow, Phoenix, AZ 85040)
Helped with the durability & cooling systems.
Gail Banks Engineering installed a Water
(or Alcohol) cooled Dual Wastegate,
Blown-Through Twin Turbocharger system.
It has Custom Exhaust manifolds,
Modified Holly Intake Manifold,
and a specially prepaired Holly 4BBL Carburator
all of which was done by GBE.
To further refine the Prototype system,
they milled the Cylinder Heads .050 to increase
the compression ratio to 7.75:1 and
a hotter than normal cam was installed along
with Prototype Variable Duration Lifters.
These lifters allow low RPM LIft & Duration,
improving both Torque & throttle response
at low speeds while still allowing a
Radical Cam Profile at the top end.
Originally Dynoed at 437 BHP after the
slight modifactions, it is conservative to say
this is now over 500 HP.
It comes complete with the specially prepaired
TH350 Transmission.
