Compact Roadmaster: 1994 Buick Century Wagon

I saw this next car and thought to myself; another 3-row, 8-passenger, wood paneled Buick station wagon from the mid 90s, must be a Roadmaster…except that it didn’t have the space ship styling or the longitudinally mounted V8 engine. Could it be possible that Buick thought the market for 8 passenger station wagons was so great in 1994 that they needed to offer multiple levels of wagonness. This wasn’t 1965…what were they thinking? I’m not sure, but what am I sure of is that I love the idea of an A-body with transverse mounted Buick V6 that was designed in the 1970s (this generation lasted from 1982-1996) was still available for sale in 1994 with wood sides and a set of rear facing jump seats. Find this 1994 Buick Century Wagon offered for $2,850 in Somers, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

A clean 1994 Buick Century Wood Side Wagon with the third bench seat in back. Only 119K miles on this cream-puff. All intact, runs and starts great. (A little breakup/misfire when goosed to high rpm, so may need plugs and/or tuneup.) Has a V6 side mount motor and Front Wheel Drive. Has been sitting for 2 years in garage. A dark Teal Blue with wood grain trim. Good tires, really clean interior, low miles, clean carpets throughout. A rare find in this kind of condition.

I drove car back from South Hadley MA, no problems, rides nice, quiet, comfortable driver. Great as family car. Has radio and cassette player. It’s an antique as it is 27 years old now. Cheap to insure if you want to put on road. Not many of these wagons around. Only noticeable rust on driver side fender with wood trim lifting. Amazingly clean interior. You can buy and drive this wagon home. Price is a little negotiable,

See a better way to haul around the family in style?
