Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. 1965 mild custom.

I've had this a couple of years but not really using it so I'm selling it. I've probably only done 500 odd miles in it.

Built in California, finished in a dark purplish/ red metallic that really pops in the sun. Interior has bucket seats up front and is nicely upholstered. My other half reckons its the most comfy car she's ever ridden in.

It really does drive nicely, just about everything works as it should. Its rebuilt 330 inch engine will cruise 70-80 all day and starts on the button. Still has its original switch-pitch automatic which works fine. Power (drum) brakes & steering as you'd expect. Exhaust sounds nice and looks virtually new.

Wheels are 17" torque-thrust style. Never really my cup of tea, but those low profile modern tyres really do help with the handling.

There is also a humongous ICE setup wired in. Amp is BIG! and there are big sub-woofers mounted in a panel that goes in the back. Never used it, was going to reinstate the original rear deck floor (which is there) so we could haul our big ol' dog (who never actually got in it).

Faults: there is some bubbling here & there on the body, especially along the upper glass - common on these apparently- it hasn't gotten any worse since I've had it. The chrome on the bumpers is starting to get rust spots. Typical California plating!
But the chassis & underbody is solid as a rock.

Any questions or inspection welcome.
Might trade for a V8 5th gen camaro.
