Only 18K Miles: 1992 Buick Roadmaster Limited

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

In the summer of 1992, my wife and I had two young sons and were looking for a “slightly used” car. We did not want a station wagon or van, but a large car. I really wanted a Roadmaster sedan, but they had only been out about a year and I couldn’t find one in my price range. We instead ended up with a 1991 Park Avenue which, while it didn’t provide quite as much room for babies and their things, it was a good compromise of luxury, size, and economy. I’ve still always wanted a Roadmaster, but just don’t have the room for another car at this time. Here is a 1992 Buick Roadmaster Limited 4 door sedan for sale here on Craigslist in the City of Orange, California.

While Oldsmobile and Pontiac had abandoned the full-size sedan body style, Chevrolet, Buick, and Cadillac (which would go for a restyle in 1993) still filled the needs of the traditional rear-wheel drive customer. The seller got this car from the original owner. The car has always been garage kept and looks to be in great condition outside. This car only has 18,139 miles. Some exterior Limited features included power antenna, C pillar coach lamps, and power rear view mirrors.

Being the Limited model, this car has a nicer interior than the standard Roadmaster. While it’s not leather, the cloth, which I prefer, is in excellent condition. The Limited also includes AM/FM stereo radio with cassette player, power door locks, power seat back recliners, power seats for both driver and front passenger, and electronic touch climate control. A driver’s side airbag is also included.

The engine is a 5.7 liter V-8 with electronic fuel injection that originally produced 180 horsepower. It was mated with an automatic transmission with overdrive. The car has had a new air conditioning compressor installed and converted to 134A and the air conditioning blows cold. The seller is asking a reasonable $5,400. Are you looking for a more modern full-size classic? Then this is it.

    I have an affinity for these biggest of the Buick lineup. There’s a 1994 version of this car hibernating in my garage right now. My late father wanted one last car, and nothing else would do. I wasn’t on board at the time but came to appreciate it for what it is, a big, comfortable boulevard cruiser.

    Seems this one has succumbed to the dreaded shedding of the body strip inserts that most have. Luckily, I’ve saved mine and plan to reinstall them come spring.

    Very competent road cars if you upgrade the suspension and steering with the police package from the Caprice.

    I met my wife at General Motors while working in the Design Group on this vehicle in 1989 back then I thought this car was ugly as hell and now almost 30 years later I still find this car ugly as hell that flat back wheel well almost makes me want to throw up but the ornamentation sure looks good that’s what I worked on
