1994 Buick Roadmaster luxury Estate wagonThe ultimate urban assault vehicle, and last of the great American wagons. This a low mile classic that is both fun to drive and extremely practical.
It holds 6 adults and 3 kids with the fold down back seat. It gets 23 MPG on the highway, 19 around town, can carry a stack of 4x8 sheets of plywood.
It also drives and handles like a muscle car because it is powered by the LT1 (Corvette) V8. This Roadmaster Estate wagon was the most expensive ar GM made in 1994, and has every option that you'd find in a Cadillac; Leather seats, power steering, power disk brakes, load leveling, cruise control, 6 way front seats, power windows, power mirrors,, a moon roof with pull out shades, pull out security cover for the cargo area, full size spare tire, rear luggage compartments (2), a roof rack with 2 adjustable rails, power antenna (this one has an added modern blue tooth CD/Stereo), and climate control....all of these features are in perfect working condition.
It also has the optional tow package, and the receiver and RV electrical outlet is clearly visible in these pictures...so it will easily pull a boat or trailer...and get great mileage while riding in comfort.
Since I bought this car I have had a recent transmission overhaul (new belts, rings and springs), a tune up, an AC charge, brand new large format tires on vintage Riviera Rally wheels, put on new shocks, brand new disk brake rotors in front, new regulators in the rear power windows, and a new front windshield.
I have spent nearly $2k on refurbs and upgrades in the last few weeks. Now she runs and drives like new...all be it with a few minor interior flaws is is a nice car in great condition!
Frankly, I love these Buick Roadmaster wagons, as seen drib=ven by Chevy Case in National Lampood'd Summer vacation (Cheryl Triggs loves them too), and I have had 5 of them like this one and loved them all. Currently I have another 94 nearly the same a this, and I have used it as as my daily driver for the last 3 years. Once they are brought up to snuff, I would not hesitate driving this to NYC and back again tomorrow...they make extremely nice road cars.
The interior is in very good condition, with just a few wear spots in the usual places....as you'd expect even with a very low milage car like this, that was obviously garaged most it's life.m There are no cracks in the dash and the Leather seats are still soft. There were some cracks in the driver door panel but I have repaired the, and they are hardly noticible. I also installed a new master window switch in this driver door assembly...all windows work perfectly now. The really great thing about maintaining these desirable cars is that you can get NOS parts still.
I bought this car from a military man who had started a conversion to a "wood delete" car (rare option), with all the wood exterior and trim removed. He had also tinted the window dark. Then his family was reassigned out of state (N. Dakoda) so I bought the car cheap because the job wasn't finished and also it came with some mechanical issues that still needed restoration (brakes, tranny, tires, windows, AC...etc).
Now I have since addressed all of these mechanical issues, so other than the final paint work, it nearly perfect....and these cars are hard to find with this very low mileage; 111K miles is about 5K miles per year, and about 1/3 of the way on these drivetrains which are legendary for getting 350+ before any major engine work is required.
I have had 5 Roadmaster wagons like this and have been driving them for a dozen years...My first Roadmaster wagon (a '91) had well over 300K and was still running strong when I sold it!
I had the goal of completing the conversion and to make a modern Nomad-ic" out of it. I have attached an example of a such a custom wagon as an example. Custom guys are starting to work out othese, and why not, they are an amazing mechanical marvel as is. So keep it simple with some minor body work and factory White paint OR dress it up the way you want, all the hard stuff is done!
So what's the catch, why so cheap?
The only "downside" to this otherwise very clean mechanically sound original car is the exterior cosmetics; the body needs some minor dents and trim spots fixed and then a partial repaint...the roof and tp is fine as is.. The "wood delete" is not complete...but most the hard work is done. If I finished the job and did fresh paint on the lower sections, I would sttart the auction at double, or triple! That is what low miles Roadmaster wagons are SELLING for here on eBay and locally in the LA area.
There are a half dozen low miles Roadmaster wagons on eBay right now, and completed auctions range from $10K to $15K +.
Roadmaster wagons are "hot" for good reason; these are incredible cars, and rare w/ thee little miles. Frankly spoken, I wouldn't be selling this one but for my other nearly identical 1994 Roadmaster parked in my garage that has been my daily driver for the last several years. I LOVE these cars!
But I also have too many other projects right now, my 56 Pontiac Safari wagon for example tha is getting new floors this week...and my day job is heating up so my time is spread too thin. Also, I am not a body & paint guy. So I am going to let this one go for nearly my cost... my loss can be your gain!.
So please, no low ballers...my price is already CHEAP and very good value. Thanks for looking.
PS, Might trade for the right classic car...I am a sucker for 50's Pontiacs...I have 4 now.
