PostSubject: I too am an RMS owner!   Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:41 pm

I actually bought this a few weeks ago but never posted about it.  Not long after Justin took delivery on the 1A2, I bought another car I really did not need nor had the room for.
Behold, my new base model bare top 94 Roadmaster sedan with 132k on it.  Won it on ebay for a whole $510 (didn't think I'd win).  The seller was nice enough to let me use his plates to get it home and being that is was in Long Island, I took it home on the ferry between there and CT.

The car is overall in very good shape.  Paint shines for the most part, interior is damn near spotless.  Its a base model with only leather interior and a posi rear (2.56 ratio).  The radio is basic, manual head lights, bare top (part of why I bid on it), and manual passenger seat.
A few things made this car cheap.  One being the transmission is dying a slow death.  It barely had 2nd gear but could be coaxed into 3rd.  I replaced the 2nd servo pin with a longer one which fixed that issue (for now) but revealed a 3rd and 4th slip.  So the trans will need a rebuild, it's a matter of when now.
The second issue is the rotted quarters.  I have to assume there's a leak as they look rusted from the inside out.  The underbody is very clean, too clean for this to be salt related.
The last issue was the exhaust.  Whoever this guy bought it from though it would be cool to cut the pipes past the cats and stick cherry bombs on it.  They didn't even pipe them out the rear, they dumped under the floor pan.  To say it sounded horrible was an understatement.  The drive home was absolutely terrible and I had a pounding headache from the 8 mile ride home from the ferry terminal.  I got home and yanked these off and installed my SS's original exhaust only to find they also hollowed the cats with a broom stick!  So now those need to be replaced to pass emissions.

So the car is registered and I'm driving it as it is.  I don't know what the future holds for it, but it's here now.

I have officially owned them all, every make and model of the B/D body line. Now I just need a 93 something to say I've had every year too Razz

Most of these pics are the seller's, it got filthy as soon as it got home and I haven't had time to wash it.


Notice the 2 different hub caps (I like the ones in the first pic better)

Iron is worth less than a $.01/lb not worth moving. I figured I owed myself a reward for selling crap.

Yes, the only cure is more cars

Nice score overall. Maybe an RMS would make a decent MPG commuter after all for cheap.

I have a 93 RMW with 146 on the clock that I would part with for an even $1000. Florida car that needs a driver's front door, a passenger's rear door, and passenger rear quarter trim. Nice blue cloth interior. Runs and drives nice. Some interior lights do not light. White with woodgrain. If I find the doors, the price will be about $1300. Driver's front door could be fixed. Rear passenger's not so much.
