PostSubject: Roadmaster Fan--Just Bought a '95 With 78,000 Miles   Sun Oct 07, 2012 12:20 pm

I've had my dad's '93 Roadmaster since 1999 that he bought new. It now has 201,000 miles and still runs great, but here in Wisconsin, the body is starting to go away. Last week, a black '95 with red interior became available with only 78,000 miles on it and a very straight, rust-free body. Records show oil changes every 2,000 miles--5W-30 Valvoline. We bought it, took it on a 400 mile trip last weekend and averaged 22.6 mpg.

I don't know if this one has the trailer package like my '93 or not. It does have a factory trans cooler in front of the radiator, but no trailer hitch or wire. In any case, I plan to take the receiver hitch off the '93 and put it on the new one.

It's great that there is a forum like this one for those of us that like these old wagons. I'm looking to get info from those of you on this forum and also contribute where I can.

Welcome Smile

Do you have a clutch fan and one electric fan? If so, you have the towing pkg. 2.93 gears too.

If not you will have dual electric fans and 2.56:1 gears and towing is limited. All of the wagons have the tranny cooler (I think).

Yes, it has a clutch fan and electric fan, so likely has the towing pkg. I'll download the option codes when I find them online.

Welcome, sounds like you found a good one. I love black-over-red. With the engine-driven fan you should have the tow pack, and you older hitch will bolt right on to the newer car.

Pics when you can please!
