1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser



The idea behind muscle wagons like the Magnum SRT8 and E55 AMG isn't new. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, most American manufacturers offered the biggest big-block--or something close--in wagon form. Oldsmobile had it going on back then: You could buy the Vista Cruiser with a variety of 400- and 455-cubic-inch V-8s, a performance-tuned suspension, even a fiberglass hood with integral hood pins. The net effect was a 442 for the whole family.

Olds provided pace cars for the Indianapolis 500 in 1970 and 1972. While the real pacer for the 1970 race was a 442 convertible and the 1972 a Hurst/Olds model, there were a few wagons badged up as support vehicles, although this 1970 example was devoid of the go-fast components. GM was best at this; you could also get a 454 in a Chevy wagon and a 455 in a Buick. The Mopar folks offered several wagons with 440s, although, sad to say, no Hemis. Fords and Mercurys could be had with 429s, not of the Boss variety, however.
