General Motors B-platform station wagons like the Chevy Caprice Estate and Buick Roadmaster Estate are a desirable used car, in our opinion. Not only are these rear-wheel-drive wagons cheap to buy, they are also spacious, reliable, inexpensive to maintain and were offered with a range of decently powerful V8 engines.
A clean 1993 Chevy Caprice Estate recently popped up for sale on Bring-A-Trailer, but we’re a lot more interested in what the mint-condition wagon is towing than the car itself. Included in the sale of this car is a strange-looking trailer that, according to the listing, was “constructed in Texas and consists of a Caprice front fascia joined with a Dodge minivan tailgate and a Caprice wagon rear end.” The trailer seems to have been built to carry people, as the interior apparently features a single bench seat upholstered in gray cloth.
As for the Caprice itself, it has spent most of its life in Texas and therefore has a clean body with clean metallic blue paint. Power comes from a 5.7L L05 V8 engine, which is paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. The car was recently serviced at a dealership, which replaced the shocks, serviced the brakes and performed an alignment. The car has 91,000 miles on the clock and is being sold with a clean Carfax report.
There’s still seven days left to bid on this ultra-clean Chevy Caprice Estate, and with bidding already at $3,898 as of this writing, it seems to actually be attracting a decent amount of interest. We like to think others share our opinion that B-Platform station wagons make a good cheap used vehicle, but maybe it’s just the oddball trailer that’s helping generate interest in it.
