Following the demise of the death of the General Motors’ B platform, the large station wagon largely died with it. 20 years later, these wagons are actually kind of cool.
But, Rutledge Wood’s is even cooler. And, it’s for sale.
Wood’s 1996 Roadmaster Estate Wagon features the 5.7-liter V8 engine, and a four-speed slush box to boot. Noise comes from the Magnaflow exhaust, which should help bystanders do a double take as you roll by. The exterior has also been outfitted with custom paint and “barn wood” style wood paneling. Not that fake stuff.
18-inch Summit Racing Legend Series gunmetal wheels with polished lip are wrapped in Toyo Extensa HP tires, giving the 1996 Roadmaster a one-of-a-kind look, that’s for sure. But the Hotchkis lowering kit helps, too.
The Buick was built for the Lost in Transmission documentary featured by The History Channel, and the seller is ready to let this beaut’ go
