The Corvette-derived 5.7L LT1 engine with true dual exhaust and 4L60E trans was standard issue in all these 1996 wagons. However, if you wanted to get all that power to the pavement most quickly, you were not going to be happy with the standard slug-like 2.56 rear end, so you needed to order the factory towing package to get the highest performance 2.93 gear set, and unless you enjoy excessive wheel-spin, you needed to order the G80 locking rear differential, only available once the tow pkg was ordered. Now, of the 30 units in this color and trim combo, only 21 had the 2.93 gears and G80, so this is indeed a rare car if this is how you like your final edition Roadmaster wagon to look and perform.

Through owning many of these LT1 powered B-body cars, I met the best group of car guys I ever encountered on the Impala SS forum. After seeing how some of the members further improved an already great platform, I decided I too wanted to modify a wagon. Starting with a factory black WB4 wood-delete wagon I bought from the original owner, and after many other performance modifications, I installed a T56 6-speed manual and a 4.10 geared Eaton posi out back, just to have a big wagon that looks, sounds, and performs better than ever intended by GM. These are on this wagon presently, shod with a set of Good Year Eagle GA 235/70/15 rubber that also appear new. Should a buyer prefer wheels in the original aluminum finish, I have an original, new set that may be substituted. Since a factory rear sway-bar was never available on the wagon, I added a bolt-on beefy Hotchkis unit. The car has a dealer installed CD changer in the rear side compartment.
Paint - no scratches, swirl marks, bird shit stains, tree sap stains, squashed bug marks, the paint is blemish-free and there is zero fade on any exterior surfaces consistent with a car garaged both night and day. There may be a half-dozen or so tiny chips that were touched up with factory paint over the years.
Body - no dings or dents
Trim - no blemishes
Under-hood - no rust, all tags and markings in place
Interior - no damage, not even one scrape on any plastic, the leather, dash, and all carpeting were covered from new until just now, revealing a mint interior, never any smoking or dogs allowed. Original cargo shade and mats mint, never stepped on
Undercarriage - original stainless exhaust. Floor-pans were dealer-undercoated when new and show no signs of rust, same for the frame itself. Some minor surface rust on some untreated under-body components, consistent with some winter driving in the northeast early in the cars life.
