Filed Under (Oldsmobile) by Station Wagon Finder on 02-13-2017

This 1966 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser is a well preserved and documented 37,342 mile wagon that is said to have no major issues. Out of Sarasota, Florida and listed on Ebay, the reserve was already met at the time of this writing with $5,200 bid. Low mileage Florida car like this always have me wondering if it started out as a snowbird’s winter car that spent much of its time in Summer storage.

Debut Wagon: 1940 Oldsmobile 40 Woody

Filed Under (Oldsmobile) by Station Wagon Finder on 12-06-2011

1940 was the first year for Oldsmobile wagons and this rare woody is a sight to see. With only 633 made and perhaps only 4 surviving, this Olds wagon found on Ebay has been with the same owner for the past 30 years. A mild restoration was done in the mid 80′s but the car is described as mostly original. Over the years the owner has enjoyed many drives along the California coast- a fitting setting for a classic woody.
