Weekly Treasure: 1993 Buick Roadmaster V8 Wagon

While the Roadmaster sedan and wagon were nothing special in the powertrain department, GM made an interesting option available starting in 1994: a towing package. When equipped with the wagon, it could tow up to 7,000 pounds. To compare, a new Ford Ranger has a 7,500-pound maximum tow rating.

The package added a limited-slip differential, heavy-duty cooling system, and a self-leveling rear suspension. Inside, the Roadmaster Wagon had leather seats, an optional third-row rearward-facing seat allowing for up to eight occupants, and an early panoramic roof GM called the Vista Roof. The exterior had tacky but kind of cool fake woodgrain sides and white wall tires.

Those who want to relive a part of their childhood family vacations can now buy this 1993 Buick Roadmaster Wagon from Frankman Motor Company in South Dakota. This one-owner example has just 62,974 miles and an asking price of $13,106.
