    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.

    Looks like you're making slow but steady progress. I am glad to see you saved this one.

    After 2 years Oldsmobile is finally serving as summercruiser and weekend warrior. Did the right thing and tossed the diesel engine in corner to wait inspiration and maybe boat hull:mischeif: I ended up putting in 99 tml olds 307 from 1988 and used all the computer stuff too. smog system was ditched. Car passed mot on flying colours and now its just small tinkerings here and there. Maybe add ac on it(y)
