Edit:  Fuel  line has been repaired.

1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon.  This was a nice car when I bought it.  Then it got neglected, been sitting a while and now it's a project.  Deep Discount for GRM members, make me an offer.  It would be best to come look at it in person before buying or have me send you a ton of pictures.  It probably looks better in the pics than it does in "real life".  LT1 V8 power under the hood.

Linky to the list of Craig's

What's the rust situation besides lines?  Had a 94 that looked spectacular on the outside but the floor basically fell out when i got it home and sat in it.

A Roadmaster without fake wood on the sides? I like that. And I’m jealous of the LT1 and intact driver seat.

Don’t really need another one of these things though.

Is it bad if my first thought was "I wonder what it would look like as a Ute?"

Do it!

It'll fit a full 4'x8' sheet of plywood with the rear gate closed as is.  (the seat has to be moved uncomfortable close to the steering wheel, but I've done it many times)

Same. But were you thinking 2dr long bed like a pickup or 4dr shortbed like an avalanche?

Anyone ?

 

I really don't want to touch this car with a wrench, but maybe my best option is to replace those two lines and sell it as a driver.

 

This is a case where I just want it gone

The problem i have with it is that I don't want to touch it with a wrench either.

If you can dodge a wrench you can dodge a ball. 

Not often you get to use that one where the context fits the first half!

Ok, you guys are making me do this so .....

Assume the service position:

Looks like this thing has a plastic-ish fuel line, so maybe that repair will be simpler than I thought.

Yeah they have nylon fuel lines with quick connects.  I just spent my last time under a B body for a long time if not ever today.  

The lack of woodgrain is what's keeping me at bay. The want is strong, but replacing the Di-Noc is costly.

The lines on the sending unit / fuel pump holder usually rot out where they come out of the tank.  Stuff sits up there and is a great place for corrosion. Luckily it's just two straps for the tank if you can battle through the fasteners. 

The quick connects on the nylon lines can be a pain, but they have replacements if you screw them up.

Rear brake line rusted & leaking.  Front side of master cylinder is still full.

Gas line is leaking (steady drips when fuel pump is on), but not rusty because it's nylon, not metal like I originally thought.  I've been hitting the bleeders with PB Blaster several times now. 

Here are a few more pics of the underside:

leaking under driver floor? fuel filter rusted?

I'm just here because I need a roadmaster/caprice wagon plastic fuel tank for my 85 converted to EFI.

Bump.

Fuel line repaired and tested.  No Leaks. yes yes 

 

Brief Test drives now available. (only has front brakes)  Make me an offer.  I will NOT be fixing the rear brake line.  I'm getting too old and busy to roll around in the gravel driveway doing that repair.

If I reapply vinyl woodgrain are you a player again ?

Normally I'd say yes, but I'm currently in somewhat of a bidding war for a Spitfire.
