1995 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon
If you're interested in a vehicle that can seat your whole family — and then some — you may look at a minivan, or possibly a full-size SUV. Or you can go a different route: You can buy this 1995 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon, which is like reliving the giant cars of the 1970's in a 1990's body. For those of you who don't know the Roadmaster Estate Wagon, here's a little overview. The Buick Roadmaster has been sold since the 1930s in some form or another, generally taking the role as Buick's flagship product. The final-generation Roadmaster, which came out in 1991, was offered in two body styles: You could get a massive sedan, or you could get a massive wagon. The wagon was called the "Estate Wagon," which may seem redundant as the European term for "wagon" is "estate" — until you realize they probably named it that because it's the size of an actual estate.
An amazingly preserved in all of its 220 inches, an Estate Wagon from 1995 is taking up some serious space here in our hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall. Overall this car is in wonderful condition, has a 260hp LT-1 engine, and as consigner states “Hauls Ass” (and I might add plenty of them due to its plentiful and generous seating setup).
In its aerodynamically designed form, this wagon is bathed in White and has the “woody” side panels. A nice Buick grille is upfront, some integrated headlights and lower body matching bumper are seen. Then the long straight steel slabs take over and run rearward, making up the overall design and function of this car….to haul people and their stuff. Wood appliqué with a contrasting rounded over wood edging covers the mid-section and shows some scratches and peeling of the appliqué. Above and below are more White painted steel. A black trim separates the panels and covers the rockers too. Big panoramic tinted windows are all around and are flush with the door panels to save on that air disturbance. The top has a tinted glass bubble sunroof cover for extra light over the front passengers, which melts into a steel panel with roof rack ribbing, and perpendicular roof rack bars (so you can haul more stuff!). On back a rounded rear glass opens in tandem with the dual swinging and opening lower gate to allow access to the rear storage area, complete with an additional bench seat. On all 4 corners are silver painted steel wheels with center chromed dog dish style caps and deep chromed trim rings.
Opening the doors and you can have a pick of your seat with 3 benches available. The front in blue leather are overstuffed buckets, extra wide with a lowering and raising central arm rest or when up a seat for 1 more. Next row is a long bench for 3 more, and in back another flip up bench for an additional 2 adults or 3 kids. The second and third row can be completely flattened to give you about the cargo space of the average pickup truck, only with a roof over its bed. The blue vinyl dash with some wood appliqué on it sits up front, and doors utilize these materials as well. On the doors we note power windows, power locks, power seat and mirror power controls and imbedded “concert sound” speakers. A full car climate control system is installed and an AM/FM/Cassette is also noted within the dash. Blue carpet fairly clean covers all the floors and a blue headliner is above nice and tight.
A consigner stated 260hp 350ci LT-1 Engine with electronic fuel injection and a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission on back on back is shoehorned into the engine bay. All is unrestored although clean. A 10-bolt rear with 2.56 gears is on back.
Underneath some surface rust, and heavy corrosion, covers the steel parts underneath. All appears structurally sound though, despite the surface rust and corrosion. This car will require a new exhaust pipe to muffler system as rust through is noted on these. Independent coil springs and power disc brakes are upfront, and on back, trailing arm and coil springs as well as power drum brakes are on.
Hopping in it was like the Griswolds going for a road trip, save all the impending scripted disasters, this car fired right up, and drove like a dream. Plenty of acceleration, plenty of interior room for passengers or cargo, and a smooth driver and cruiser. It stopped on a dime, and all functions functioned.
Instead of that “toaster” or SUV, why not have a classic to haul around in with this well-kept 1995 Buick Roadmaster Estate Wagon. All 220 inches of it, all 350ci LT-1 performance of it, all seats and space to romp around in? Right here now at Classic Auto Mall.
