5k: Seller Submission: 1992 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon
The 1991-1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate was a badge engineered version of the Chevrolet Caprice Estate that added some flair to the B-body platform. On the inside, the Roadmaster has room for six regular sized passengers (plus two more facing rearward) but on the outside, it is all American wood-sided awesome. Find this 1992 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon here on eBay currently bidding for $255 with 4 days to go, located in Belgrade, MT. Seller submission from Oldsmobuick.
The 4000 lb+ B-body Roadmaster was canceled in 1996. At the time, it was the last full sized station wagon and last full sized rear-drive automobile from General Motors. Like a Dinosaur who stumbled into the Cenozoic era by accident, it looked around nervously for the exit before crushing a few zip codes on its way out.
The Roadmaster is powered by the old L05 V8, a cast iron pushrod and throttle body fuel injected equipped small block that was good for 180 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs of torque. The only available transmission was a 4-speed automatic, but swapping in an LS1 and 6-speed from a Camaro would be an easy upgrade.
