1969 vista cruiser

Hi everyone i just brought home a 69 cruiser for 800 dollars. She has the original title from nebraska and has been moving polebarn to polebarn in michigan for at least 5 years with no one working on her or retitling her. She runs and drives, trans needs some work and needs a water pump but already got that taken care of. There is alot of surface rust and rot in the normal places, what do you expect nebraska and michigan not a easy life on a car. Interior is in great shape and i think she has alot of potential. What do you guys think from the brief description, I plan on getting some pics up soon. This is my first project car plus I am only 18 so that doesnt help LOL. I so far have been able to locate the parts i need but would like to know if anyone has parts for one of these classics or know where i may be able to get parts if needed. Let me know please.


sorry about the other post the computer messed up

Any Oldsmobile that runs is worth $800 as long as you still have some body to work with. A little rust is to be expected, as you said, your winters aren't the kindest. I spent three years in Wisconsin, very similar. Do the road crews use salt in Nebraska?

I agree, sounds like a deal. My very first car was a 1968 VC, so I've always had a soft spot for them. The roof glass is the hard part to find. Good luck.

My first car was a 75 Chevy that I bought for $750. It was so rotted that you could fit a small dog into the trunk through the fender.

Sounds like a cool car. Post some pics!

Good find. What I have found is most [non Olds nuts] know a Vista Crusier more than any other late 60's car's. They always say, "My mom used to take us to baseball practice in one of those."

luckly i do not need any glass for it the last part i need to track down is the window motor for the tail gate and i just spoke to a junk yard in minisota who claims to have one that i plan on ordering, The plan is to remove the original motor and store it while i have another 350 rocket i am gonna build and put in it hopefully getting 400+hp also a stage 2 shift kit in a 400 trans and a set of 4:10 gears with a detroit locker in the rear. Then the body work, i do not want to use bondo what so ever.

Ill get some pics up, i am new to the site and not quite sure how but i will figure it out

Welcome aboard!
Nice find on the Vista - looks like a great project ahead of you - lots of potential! Nice plans for the engine - what a street sleeper.

Geez, I wish I had one of those when I was 18! All I got was a hand-me-down Pinto...
Buy a service and body manual and use the internet - you will get lots of help from these and learn a lot in the process. For new parts, look up Fusick's, The Parts Place, OPG, Kanter, Year One, or Paddocks. Many parts will be available, though some Vista body parts are harder to find.

I hope to find a VC some day that I can use as a daily driver - I like the style and utility they offer.
Keep us posted on your progress!

Oh - to add pictures, use the "post reply" button (not quick reply) and click the button for "manage attachments". Follow the instructions and you can post pictures. Or, use photbucket or flickr or one of those sites (like I do) and just post the link in your message.

Cool Be sure

It took me a good deal of searching before I figured out that Vistas need a vented gas cap. If you have pressure on the gas cap when you open it, it could harm the gas tank.Be sure and check yours. Due to EPA regualtions you might have to send me a private message as to how to fix the problem.

I love my 69 Vista, It has 3rd seat, air shocks, 455, tilt wheel, a/c, bucket seats, center consol, tic toc tach 15" SSII Wheels, am/fm and is a blast to curise around. I'll try to take a few pic this weekend.

Carpe Diem.

check out cars for sale

Check out the 70 Vista under "cars for sale" and you'll see what I was talking about in the private message I sent you. The wheels really add alot to a wagon.

Dan, if you have an old window motor you could always remove it and have it rewound. This might be cheaper than buying a replacement. There are generally a few electric motor shops in the yellow pages that can easily rebuild a window motor, starter, or alternator.

That is one organized garage jamsbo! We deal with alot of rust up here in Jersey danlonchar. My first car, if you lifted the carpet you would see the road. It was a 1973 Chevelle. Good luck on your project. You came to the right place for info. You'll get straight answers here without the usuall Bull$hit.

motor

I have a few extra olds motors, 1 455, 1 350. I will be happy to help you in any way I can [old fat thumbs, deslexia and all]

Good luck, I have found this is the most fun [with your clothes on] that you can have. Olds "Gurus" have have helped me more than I can say, and I would be honored to "pass it on" and help you with your Vista any way I can.

regards

Vista Parts

I noticed you've started looking for some Vista parts/pieces in the "parts wanted section." I had good luck with some of the Arizona "junk" yards. Check Hennings adds for their numbers and locations.

IMHO if ya find it, BUY it, even if you don't need it now, you may down the road.

One piece of chrome missing makes a big difference.

Have you taken the time to count how many pieces of chrome are on a Vista? Take off both shoes before ya start.

You actually need the hood from a 442 or Cutlass 2 dr. The Vista used the same flat hood as the 4 dr cars and the H/O scoop won't fit. Good used is your only choice, unless you want an aftermarket fiberglass hood. Dick Miller sells these.

Hood

Go to 69olds.com and click on "stripes specs". It shows a close up of a 69 442 hood with the center valley depression.Also notice the fake vents toward the rear of the hood.Or just scroll up and look at the pic of my 442 blue convertible.

The VC hood is flatter in the center.

For lack of a better description the 69 H/O scoop is "U" shapped.The 69 HO hood scoop sits over this valley or center depression in the rear and on top of the higher flat areas of the hood in the front.

If memory searves me correctly the 69 Cutlas has the same center depression but not the fake vents at the rear.

Sorry it's a little hard to explain. But One picture .......

Yes, a 69 Cutlass S/442 "double hump" hood bolts right on to a Vista (or any other 69 Cutlii).

Keep at it.

Danlonchar: Go for it with the VC. There will be TONS of work (after you get all the mechanicals done) as in the body work. Been there, done that. Body work/paint alone took right at 5 years (not full time), but well worth it. Have a really fun driver now - '68 Flat Top Wagon painted to look like a '68 Hurst/Olds.

Dan:

As the other posters wrote, the Cutlass/4-4-2 hood is a direct bolt-on, but 1969 only. You would have to remove the "tooth" in the middle of a 1970-72 Olds A-body hood and replace it with the '69 tooth. '68 uses a completely-different hood.

Fortunately, the Vista Cruiser is identical with the Cutty/4-4-2 from the B-pillar forward.

Best wishes,
Bill

i need to track down the window motor for the tail gate
I went to the pick and pull and removed the rear window motor and wiring out of a 1980s Suburban for my 67 Vista. Man does that move the window quickly! I should have taken the window bottom track as well - mine was bits of rusted metal and I paid way too much to have it rebuilt.

WOW! Longtop looking good, Dan! Don't know when you posted this. I got a replacement window motor that works on another vehicle; car is in the shop right now, along with the window motor. Will try and get a P/N tomorrow.
