There’s not a lot to say about this wagon other than WOW! You are looking at a 1972 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser station wagon with an Olds 350 engine an effectively not a single flaw. If there were a vintage wagon concours car show, we’re thinking that this car would be about a 99 pointer. The paint is magnificent, the simulated woodgrain is amazing, the windows…all of them, are clear and crisp and sho no signs of the fogging some get after 50 years of living in the sun. The interior, all of it. This thing is a living breathing example of peak station wagon.
While many people like the Buick Sport Wagon over the Vista Cruiser, we’d argue that styling-wise, the Olds wins this fight. The way the bumpers wrap, those muscular rear quarter panel kickouts, and even the finished treatment of the rear bumper all make this thing really great from literal end to end.
This car was only driven 44,000 miles over the last 50 years. Outside of the paint and some other stuff under the car it’s as original as it can be. The interior is all kinds of brown. It would surely be sticky as hell in the middle of the summer and you’d slide across it an ice rink in the winter but it’s perfect.
What else can we say. This is just fantastic on every level.
The perfect nostalgia racing push and pit vehicle!!
What a excellent piece of art. Too bad it didn’t have the 455 rocket under the hood. I’ll have to tear out the wall in my garage so it will fit but that’s not a problem at all. Would gladly do so. 🙂

My dad bought a 1968 Vista Cruiser new with a 350. The car was hot! It had three seats. Great car!
What a wonderful Oldsmobile station wagon from a favorite teenage year. I would love to have this 72 Vista Cruiser today and ask my wife to drive it on occasion, just so that I could ride in the back like I did as kid again cruising to the supermarket.
