Last of the Mohicans: 1995 Buick Roadmaster

By Cory -- Think of this 1995 Buick Roadmaster as the BBW (big beautiful woman) of cars. It is large and in charge in most every way. 1996 was the last year of the Buick Roadmaster, Cadillac Fleetwood, and Chevy Caprice production. Find this car 1995 Buick Roadmaster on New Haven, CT craigslist for under 50 cents a pound ($1900).

The LT1 engine was good for 260 hp in Roadmaster form which was down about 40 hp from Corvette fitment. No one will argue with the owner’s choice to install a dual Cherry Bomb dual exhaust set up on the car. Loud pipes save lives.

This Roadmaster miraculously made it out of the factory without the vinyl toupee roof and is far better looking for it. The car may have the towing package as the seller mentions having a posi rear end. The tufted grey leather seats look near new and not typically found in a two grand car.

Police and taxi fleets both mourned the demise of the General Motors body on frame B-body as it left the Ford Panther as the only domestic option.

Cory is trying to finish off his project 1995 Mercedes E36 wagon and figure out what to do with his hoard of rare w124 parts.   


  1. Cherry bomb exhaust? I think we know how the seller found out the car had a posi rear end....

  2. "Me smell Mohican burning. Me last of Mohicans. Must be me!"

    Not as large as some of the early '70s bumper-iron, but big enough.

  3. Nice ad...tells us everything we want to know about the car..milage, AC working or not... maintenance records.....yep, great ad.

  4. these are great cars and strong runners too; they also built them in 1996

  5. "Loud pipes save lives" I love it!

  6. I need that engine for my Vette. Then the wife can have this after I transplanted a Suzuki Swift 3 cylinder for the mileage :)
