1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Vista Cruiser

Up for sale is a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Vista Cruiser 2 Seat Wagon, atching numbers 350 automatic drivetrain, atching colors in terms of paint and interior, nd mostly original interior, ash, nd carpet. It was optioned with power steering, ower brakes, ower windows, ower seats, nd air conditioning. Freshly tuned with wires, lugs, ap, tc. Also fully serviced, uel filter, ir filter, il filter, adiator flushed, ewer battery, nd all fresh oils and greased. Just installed a brand new muffler, ailpipe, nd all new clamps (see picture), ompletely stock, o glass packs. Newer period whitewall radial Michelin tires and original hubcaps. Interior is at least 90-95% original and well-cared for, o tears or rips, he carpet even appears to be original. Nice headliner. Overall, t is in good condition for its age to say the least.
The car is well-documented with a full owner's manual set, ervice paperwork from the 1970s, missions and insurance data from the last 30 years (owner in Maryland kept that documentation from the mid-1980s to 2014-2015), nd even an appointment book from 1973 and a memo book from 1974, oth presumably from the original owner (not sure though). Also includes original luggage rack and spoiler! All factory tinted windows, lass is all in good shape and all of the windows are working including the back tailgate window. Tailgate swings out one way, ut it does not want to fold down. It does open completely though. Also, t has a heavy duty trailer hitch installed. For its age and spending most its life in Maryland, t does show some rust as you can see in the pictures in the undercarriage and lower rockers, oors, tc.
Has been repainted once quite a while back in the original Bamboo color and is about a 10-footer (definitely driver quality). Chrome and trim in good shape for its age, omplete, othing missing. The woodgrain vinyl is probably original and is in good shape for its age, he tailgate piece is the worst, ut excessive wear there is pretty typical for Vista Cruisers. Missing original radio, ad an AM FM radio when it was new, ut the owner who purchased it around the late 1970s had an aftermarket Realistic AM FM Cassette installed in 1979. We can provide that radio along with the manual for it. Dash is in great shape, o cracks or tears, ot faded. The Cruiser was garaged most of its life.
All in all, t is a running working project and a fantastic example of a rare 2-seat Vista Cruiser survivor from the last year. It's believed to be a two-owner, irst owner had it until about 1977 (we have a Goodyear tire warranty from that time) and then it was purchased by a man in Maryland around 1978 and stayed in his collection until he passed away around 2015 (the last insurance card from Maryland was for 2014-2015). So it's had a lot of time in the garage. It runs well and is not a leaker or smoker. My Dad did a lot of general maintenance, etail-work, xhaust, tc. over the last 3 months. Title is clean, o liens, igned off by the estate representative. Below is a break-down of the VIN and Trim Tag along with the NADA book value and some additional pictures.
