The Buick Roadmaster Estate is a highway cruising leviathan that was built for Buick as a badge engineered version of the Chevrolet Caprice Estate. The B-body behemoth hits the scales at 4,700 lbs and was the last full sized body-on-frame wagon to be assembled by an American automaker.

The Roadmaster wasn’t your average land barge — it was an above average land barge powered by a variant of the Chevrolet Corvette V8. The LT1 in the Roadmaster was rated at 260 horsepower (down a few from the Vette) and 330 ft-lbs of torque — and with the stock 4L60 automatic, the Roadmaster makes more of a towing machine than a sports car.
However, with seating for 8 people (3 front row, 3 second row, 2 in back) the Roadmaster offers people hauling capability mixed with trailer hauling and occasional arse hauling. The stock torque converter engagement makes the Roadie feel a bit sluggish right off the line, but once up on plane it feels faster than you’d ever expect.
