Wagons are red hot right now as they are getting more appreciation on the classic car scene, and this 1965 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser has all the popular pieces. It has a cool aged-in patina on the outside. The interior has a vibrant look and upgrades like A/C. And there\'s a nice power upgrade under the hood, too.
The reason why we like the love wagons from the 1960s is it combines childhood nostalgia with plenty of cues from the muscle car world, too. After all, the face of this Vista Cruiser is shared with the first generation Olds 442. And the Cragar wheels and redline tires play into this muscle car feeling, too. The wagon body is a reminder of days when the whole family would pile in for everything from ice cream runs to cross-country trips. Plus, this one has a terrific patina that looks like mom and dad parked it in the barn for 40 years after the last family visit to the Grand Canyon. But as you look a little closer, the bright bumpers and straight trim also signal just how clean and complete this aged-in wagon really is.
The interior starts to show off how much work has really gone into this wagon. Two rows of bright red seats feel fresh. These are joined by more nice capering, a taut headliner, and smooth dash all finished in red, too. And we especially love the Vista Cruiser\'s hallmark roof windows that are awe-inspiring as today\'s panoramic sunroofs. It\'s a vintage and detailed look, right down to the working dome light. This also gives you the upgrades you really want, like an auxiliary gauge trio and cold-blowing air conditioning. There\'s plenty of room in the back for cargo, and when you fold the second row, too, you\'ve got the perfect machine to securely haul everything from a weekend\'s worth of projects, to the ultimate tailgate package.
The engine bay has a tidy look with a shining V8 at its heart. And that motor holds a cool secret. It\'s Pontiac\'s 389 V8. It\'s the same kind of engine that was making the GTO a legend in 1965. This one even has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake for extra power. Plus, it\'s supported by good pieces, like a serpentine belt system, newer brake booster, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The V8 fires up readily and makes a nice rumble out of the dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/front discs round out a great driving package.
The sale comes complete with the original warranty card, owner\'s manual, service manual, and restoration photos. This Olds has the power and sound you always wish the family wagon had, and it has the cool patina look that gets noticed in the modern world. So you know this is the ultimate classic cruiser.
