In 1986, the Skyhawk T-Type underwent yet another transformation. A new two-door hatchback could now be ordered in T-Type trim with a Grand National-inspired turbo bulge hood, smoked tail lights, and an optional louvered rear window. Hidden headlamp assemblies also replaced the Skyhawk’s dated front fascia with four visible headlights. This gave the Skyhawk a far more aerodynamic and sporty appearance.
A leather wrapped three-spoke steering wheel, two-tone sport bucket seats, and an expanded gauge cluster featuring a tachometer and boost gauge spruced up the interior. Fourteen-inch Shelby aluminum wheels, wider 205/60/14 Eagle GT tires, and Buick’s Gran-Touring suspension dramatically improved the ‘Hawk’s handling to near-German levels of refinement. Word source
