1965 Vista Cruiser

Well, I don't really want to sell this thing, but I just bought another car, a car I've been wanting for a long time so I probably shouldn't have both with limited garage space. I bought this a few months ago from the original owner, with the intent on keeping it. '65 Olds Vista Cruiser. Daily Driver.

There's a slight leak on the rear main seal. When I bought the car, I was told it was an original 330. It's not....it's an Olds 350 with a TH350 Hydramatic. I prefer the Hydramatic over the power glide.

I just put new Hankook tires on it less than 300 miles ago. I also bought a whole bunch of new suspension parts (springs, air shocks, steering box, etc) that go with the car.

Car was original a light blue metallic...repainted at some point in white.

Car is very solid. Interior is very nice. One spot of rust under passenger floor, One spot in bottom of tail gate. Typical surface rust around the vista windows. Bumpers need to be straightened and rechromed. I have full factory body and chassis manuals for the car. Clean title in my name.

Looking to get right around 6K. I don't have to sell her...I do think it's one of the coolest cars I've owned.


Located in High Desert of SoCal

A/C and PW, nice. But the one I own is enough for me. Good luck with the sale.

Considering what I (over)paid for my 64 and the relative condition of this car compared to mine, that's an awesome price. I wish you had been selling this car a couple of months ago...

If there is one thing that has no bearing on a car's value, it's what you spend on it.
