The 1957 Buick Roadmaster Motorhome Is A Bizarre And Amazing Barn Find

For the 1957 model year, the Buick Roadmaster introduced a new front end design with a wider windshield and tilted rear pillars. The highlight of the design, however, is perhaps the so-called Dagmar bumper at the front, while on the tech side, there’s a new V8 engine with 300 horsepower. However, due to the financial recession that started the previous year, the new Roadmaster was not a sales success, managing to record around 33,000 sales. This makes it a rare vehicle these days and even rarer in motorhome form.

Yes, you read that right – there was a custom motorhome creation based on the 1957 Roadmaster, something that didn’t come straight out of the factory. This is what happened with the machine shown in the video above, which is from More Mortske Repaiactive r channel YouTube. It’s not exactly in good condition but it’s definitely a great vehicle from a time long gone.

In fact, the initial impression was that this machine needed a lot of effort and money to get back to its former glory. Judging by the front end view and the damage to the fascia and left fender, there has been an accident at some point in the past. The engine also seems to be out of place and the bonnet is coming off its hinges. The vehicle was purchased from an online auction and the ad says no transmission. Windshield shattered but tires still holding pressure.

The bad news is… this is the better part of the vehicle. Footage from inside the living area shows everything in the camper zone is dirty and most of the equipment is probably broken. The mirrors are also missing and probably many other components remain invisible to the eye in this video.

So what’s the plan? It seems that the presenter of the video program does not want to restore or drive a home-built motorbike because it requires a lot of effort and money. Instead, he’s willing to sell it to someone who has the time and resources to make something out of it. Interested? Watch the video and contact the seller. And remember – never drink and haggle online.
