The Wagon is for sell! I'm ready to start on another project and I'm trying to thin the heard and simplify. It needs some sorting and a trans rebuild/swap. 

https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/cto/d/morgantown-1995-buick-roadmaster-wagon/7427862802.html

1995 Roadmaster Wagon with 6.0 LS swap. 
Good overall condition. 

Here is the run down:
Wagon has 156k
LY6 6.0LS with roughly 170k out of 08 2500
Running Holley Terminator X
Wilwood brakes on front
LS3 Intake 
Holley 340 in tank fuel pump
Trickflow stage 2.5 Cam
Setup for A/C needs wired and charged
Running stock 4l60E
Impala SS gearbox
New 17x9 Wheels with 275/45r17 Kuhmos
Needs exhaust redone it’s rusted out
Trans lines have minor leak

Runs and drives but could use fine tuning and finessing. Swap has about 500 miles on it and I roasted the stock trans already. It can be driven short distances still but 1st and 2nd are gone once it warms up. I bought another Project already and ready to start on it. Let me know if you have any questions. I did the swap so I can give you all the details. 
I have a huge folder of all the parts I bought and used. Thanks!

I will give generous GRM discount. I'm really not looking for trades but I may consider something of lesser value plus some cash. Thanks guys!

Yea I actually bought a T56 and FedEx lost it... I took that as a sign... I don't know how you lose a 125 lb trans but FedEx is your guy!

Good thing I no longer have my T56, so I'm not tempted to ask how much; it, at least, is large enough to live in if I brought it home, but I couldn't afford the alimony crying

Bump. 

This is a really cool car, and I can vouch for the seller.  I bought a Miata from him a few years back. yes

Thanks Indy!

I would really like to keep it, but I would like to put efforts elsewhere. Kids will do that! Indy knows better than anyone.

In reply to Justjim75 :

$6900 obo might trade for a small car (good mpg, as always manuals preferred) plus cash.

I have a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3. That I am working on replacing some of the body panels on from when it was in an accident. That I might be interested in trading depending on how much cash you might want on top.  If you have any interest in it I can get you more details and pictures. 
 

Is a small car. Manual hatchback. Not sure it meets the good mpg's though.
