trying to compile a production number list of wagons by year as the numbers generated by compnine are a little different than what I read

Wagon production numbers project completed per the compnine tool

1A2 production
1996 1A2 wagon total = 1
1995 1A2 wagon total = 154
1994 1A2 wagon total = 217
1993 1A2 wagon total = 168
1992 1A2 wagon total = 172
1991 1A2 wagon total = 134
Total = 846


1991 OCC = 6,897
1992 OCC = 4,347
Total Production = 11,244

1991 RMW = 6,781
1992 RMW = 11,715
1993 RMW = 9,714
1994 RMW = 8,885 (wow over 5600 had beige interiors), 6250 had the tow pack
1995 RMW = 5,675
1996 RMW = 9,147
Total Production = 51,917

1991 Caprice = 13,600
1992 Caprice = 13,400
1993 Caprice = 10,546
1994 Caprice = 7,805 (I noticed 2 cars were built with an L99...we know where one of those went...)
1995 Caprice = 5,361
1996 Caprice = 638
Total Production = 51,350

Total Last Generation B-body wagons = 114,511


got a fe VINs off of ebay and auto trader to complete the list so considering the tool uses GMs data base it's probably accurate (but those 91 and 92 caprice numbers seem too round to me)

Very nice work. You know it's interesting that with 1992 being the largest production run for the Buick Roadmaster you hardly ever see one for sale or even on the streets.

I'm not refuting the numbers here but I wonder where the 638 number came from for 96 Caprice wagons. It's been long held that the number was less than 500.

Great work though and certainly nice to have this info!

A large number of them are down here in FL!

I have a white one. Fairly non-descript, factory wheels, tinted windows (see avatar).

Anyway I often have people at work thinking they have seen my car. They come up to me and say things like "Hey I saw you this weekend over in _____ or up in ____" . and almost everytime it wasn't me!

+1 I parted a LAB 92 RMW woody and sent two more 92 LAB to the Great White North last year. So every '92 RMW I've had has been a LAB woody. I've held title on 8 wagons since Aug 2007 and 2 were 92 RMWs. So that's 20% for me Smile

I'd love to find out production numbers for WB4s for the various years. I recently saw that 92 WB4 on ebay. I didn't know that option was avail on TBI Buicks.

Update on the numbers here. The 91 OCC I bought from Chris has a number higher than the count I have above for OCCs. My wagon is a late 91 built in May 91 and it's over 7000 on the last 5 of the VIN.

This agains throWs a layer of fog into the mix, lol.


MOD. Please sticky this thread....

It's probable that the last 5 digits were assigned in serial to all product coming down the line and not segregated by make. Back then there was a mix of B-bodies being built at Willow Run. From a GM press release:

Quote :
-- Willow Run Assembly Plant, Ypsilanti, Mich., with 4,014 employes. It produces the Chevrolet Caprice sedan and wagon, Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser wagon and Buick Roadmaster Estate wagon. Production of these vehicles will be consolidated with production at the plant in Arlington, Texas. Consolidation will be completed, and the Willow Run plant will cease operations by the summer of 1993.

Yes, but I had figured the OCC numbers should accurate as an Olds is not a Buick so the Vin count should be wagon only as there was no Old's sedan.

If they did share the number then my 7xxx OCC should be a lot higher count in sequence being built so late in the model year. I had OCC cars built in 11/1990 that were #s 139 and 868 built about two weeks apart.

It's quite possible that one plant was assigned a range of numbers and the other plant was assigned a different range. And/or they didn't necessarily start at 1. EG: (to pick numbers out of a hat) Willow Run: 00101 to 05000, Arlington 050101 and up. Lots of manufacturers do things like that to make headroom for prototypes, etc.

Well for me the Olds was only built at Willow Run from what I understand. Personally, I owned car 139 which even if they started at 101 the count doesn't match up with the compnine totals above and the VIN on my late 91....

I don't have any information on specifics. Though I have heard it is the rarest of colors next to black.
