This will be a long post due to the number of photos. (Photo Set One and information here)

Glen West (GWTurbo) 1995 Buick Roadmaster Wagon is offered for sale.

The wagon is being placed on the impalassforum and the longroof forum prior to local sale in hope a fellow forum member will give it a good home. Glen died April 18th this year. Many of you knew Glen and his love of this wagon and the forum fellowship. He was a true friend and is still missed. I have worked with his sons to prepare as concise an overview of the car as I know how. I believe it to be a true wood delete BW4, with almost 178K on the odometer. I’ve not had the opportunity to run a CarFax on the VIN though to confirm and forgot to look at the SIPD. The 22 photos give a good report on the car and its condition. Glen took meticulous care of the wagon. Although he was not the original owner, it received many of its finer touches you see in the photos under his stewardship.

Take a walk around the car and you notice the shine of the paint and the black accents on the mirrors and pillars. Glen added the euro headlamps and side lamps. He tried HID but went back to halogen lamps for better illumination. Glen found a heated rear window delete hatch glass on a salvage yard visit and replaced his heated glass with the rare clear window. The original is included with the car.

Wheels are American Racing 17 inch alloy with metal center caps. Tires are Kumho 255-50 R17. Look at the photos for detail and tread.

Inside you will find Bonneville bucket seats and an S10 Console with floor shift, all color matched. The radio is AM/FM/CD with satellite radio built in. In the rear cargo bay Glen added a 9C1 overhead lamp, separately switched, to augment the assist handle lamps. As usual, I don’t believe the 3rd seat was ever used. I never saw it with the second seat up until the photo session. Some of you may recall Glen experienced a driver’s door electrical short that fried the wiring. The door panel was replaced and a replacement door wiring harness located. The wiring is pretty well sorted out but there are still a few things he was tracing out when he died.

Underneath the car is as nice as the rest and commensurate with the overall condition of the wagon. There is a close-up of the S-10 shift linkage setup along with the undercarriage photos leading into the suspension. Bilsteins are at all four corners. Glen prompted me to invest in Bilstein shocks for my own ’95 RMW Limited. They are that good. Hotchkiss wagon spec front and rear sway bars are present with the rear bar mated to adjustable lower control arms. I am not certain what the manufacturer is, but you can judge from the photo of the LCA & sway bar mount.

Glen replaced the transmission in the last year. It is not a tow package car, so the rear is not a posi.

The engine compartment shows a host of modifications. (Including a separately switched under hood lamp!) All coolant hoses are 9C1 SEO silicone with correct clamps. Water pump is an electric Meziere WP118HD unit with Gary’s wiring hook up kit.

The black powder coated RAISS deflector is attached to a billet aluminum radiator top dress piece. The Cone intake filter and MAF mount to the intake with a Corvette intake boot. The Corvette throttle cover adds to the custom white Corvette engine dress kit with Roadmaster nameplates on each cover. The intake mates to F-Body aluminum heads, installed within the last year along with the Edlebrock Mdl 6603 Headers (CARB ID NO 215 17).

For additional information, please contact Cary West at carywest@comcast.net or  386-336-2099. While the price is set at $3500.00, feel free to offer more. Glen would be proud.

Richard Snipes, 4501 Safari on the forums.

Go to the impalassforum link Tim posted and view the photos.  Any questions you may contact Glen's son Cary, (contact info in post), or me.  In case you do not know, the car is in Florida.

Thanks for the interest,

Interestingly, its original headlights are currently on my car. Smile

Kidneys go for quite a bit. You're Canadian... do you know a doctor? LOL


Yeah, it's tan. I've sat in it. He recently put two low mileage passenger seat bottoms in the Bonnies and they're the nicest set I've been in. Not crushed at all. That was the last time I talked to Glen in person, and he gave me the lights and a new multifunction stalk.

Just got word Glen's wagon is SOLD.

Not too bad as it took less than 4 hours.

Maybe I should sell cars, eh?

Not that I had the money, but damn, totally missed it and someone got a great deal on a wonderful car. Hope they treat it with the love and care that Glen did.

Thank you all.  I've always admired Glen and his wagon and was honored to be able to purchase it.  Although I've never done one before I think I'll start a sort of build thread to keep a log as I finish getting the door damage repaired and whatnot.

Congrats Joel. I know you'll make Glenn Proud. I'm sure he'd be happy to see one of us get it.
