If you are an avid admirer of the B-Platform Buick Roadmaster wagon, then you’re fortunate as a remarkably scarce, resin diecast replica of a 1993 Buick Roadmaster Estate is presently available for sale on eBay. Be forewarned, it comes with a hefty price tag, but its top-notch craftsmanship and rarity as a discontinued model make the $1,000 price tag more justifiable.

This charming miniature model is constructed from a no longer available Modelhaus do-it-yourself assembly kit and has supposedly been coated with a foundation of Dark Cherry Metallic exterior paint, factory code #77, a coat of clear varnish, and then meticulously “highly polished” to achieve an almost reflective luster.

As per the description, this model is so intricately detailed that it includes vintage California “blue” license plates, a spring-loaded steel antenna, both external rear-view mirrors, a complete interior featuring a turn signal lever and gear shift levers, and even whitewall tires. The seller, who claims to meticulously craft and restore these replicas with great precision, even took care to replicate the rubber weather stripping around all the windows.

While this may sound similar to other diecast replicas on the market, this particular piece is a resin-crafted model, which generally implies that none of the doors, trunk, or hood can be opened. This sets it apart from the more conventional metal diecast models that often allow for movements like opening hoods, doors, trunks, and other interactive features. Unfortunately, you won’t have the ability to raise the hood on this one to inspect whether the maker accurately reproduced the Roadmaster’s L03 or LT1 V8 engine.

Nonetheless, it seems that the front and rear windows are open to offer a clearer view of the interior.

With all these intricacies taken into account, and considering its scale, do you believe all this warrants the seller’s listed price?
