    Nice find! More pictures please. We all love those! Sounds like a great platform to start off from. I just acquired a 1965 Olds Vista Cruiser last week, still trying to get her home! (pictures forthcoming) Hope you enjoy your new wagon and good luck getting it road worthy!.....Longroofs Rule!

    And here is a picture of it the day i picked it up.
    pretty straightforward build. replacing brakeparts and filters. Car runs great, but oilrings have stucked so it smokes like old train. if anyone has tricks for soakin them up i would gladly hear it.
