April 6, 2021 Update – while this “Classifind” now shows up deleted, given the seller’s past history we suspect it may not actually be sold yet.

In the interim, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

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 few pictures and two sentences have us thinking this 1969 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser project with only 68,000 original miles relisted in March 2021 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.
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.”
