Jan 2021 | Classifinds, Wagon Wednesday

January 4th, 2021 Update – In yet another apparent holiday holdover, the private seller provides an updated listing of the ’69 Olds Vista Cruiser.  This time around, they provide several more pictures and also decided to lower their asking price by $600 down to $3,900.

December 9th Update – Shortly after we went to press featuring this ’69 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser despite only one picture provided, the seller added several more photographs. However, this project car will still need to be inspected in person to confirm it’s something you want to add to your winter project list.

A lone picture and two sentences have us thinking this 1969 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser project with only 68,000 original miles listed over the weekend here on Craigslist in Reinholds, Pennsylvania might be a find when you go inspect it in person.  Now with a lower $3,900 asking price (down from the original $4,500), the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the ask is less than the #4 “Fair” condition estimate of $4,650 and if brought back to “Excellent” condition could be worth $25,000.  So, depending on how much work is needed combined with your restoration abilities, there is a chance you could remain in the black if you made this Vista Cruiser roadworthy again before finding its next caretaker.  If you are serious about buying this unique station wagon, you can start the conversation by calling Mike at (717) 503-4032  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Vista Cruiser featured here on Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s description:

“Very much original car, has low miles kept in try storage, no bodywork was done so what you see is what you get has all moldings original to the car, believe I am the 3rd owner, the frame is good floors are solid the hidden trunk bottom needs to be replaced, Replaced gas tank and fuel pump, give me a call Mike 717-503-4032​”
