1986 vs. 1987 Grand National
I'm thinking of adding a GN to the collection and am trying to understand or get some opinions on getting past owning a 1986 vs. a 1987 from a collector standpoint. I have the opportunity to purchase a very nice 86 model with low miles that if it were an 87, would be thousands more from the research I've done. Besides slight cosmetic changes, is it just the fact that 87s are the last year of the G body that drives the price up? There were far less 86s produced so that would seem to suggest more collectability. Don't get me wrong, I want to drive and enjoy whatever GN ends up in the garage but it bothers me that 86 models don't seem to benefit from the 87 prices.
