1984 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Station WagonRemember the days when families used to pile in the station wagon all the way back to the third row seat? The days when families would actually make use of the roadside parks and highway picnic areas? Let's take a trip!
Be prepared, this car shockingly attracts attention, smiles, and conversation wherever I have stopped.
This is a clean survivor! Truly a collectible. 1984 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser station wagon in Light Royal Blue Metallic. This wagon is still wearing it's original paint and interior fittings, as well as the 307 cubic inch 4 barrel drive-train it was born with. It has truly been given an immense amount of care to pass through 36 years in this stunning condition. I can say with some conviction that the car has not been driven in any salty winter weather, nor has it been kept in the sun.The window rubbers, interior fabrics, dashboard, and carpets show no fade. The dashboard is perfect, without even the smallest suggestion of cracking or warping. All glass is chip free and clear. The only real suggestion of it's years would be the missing lower front fender filler plastics. These finally gave way in October 2019 on a highway trip.
All electrical options including the original Delco AM/FM Cassette radio, power antenna, rear power gate window, and climate controls are in full smooth working order. Heater is capable of warming the entire cabin in short order. Ten minutes of driving will have you sliding the classic control back to the left. Hot summer day cruise? Don't worry, this baby has perfectly operating R-12 air conditioning with a new AC Delco Compressor. The factory radio is in perfect operating condition. It is quite a throwback scrolling through the analog FM dial. As previously mentioned, the power antenna functions flawlessly, as does the dual opening rear tailgate and power gate window.
The glove compartment in the wagon contains the original literature, all manuals, even the Olds dealer's plastic key fob. On top of the dashboard is a custom fabric dash cover, to further lengthen the longevity of the dash material. The blue fabric seats have remained covered their entire life. I have only removed the coverings to take pictures of the vehicle. The wagons offered the Olds gauge package, which consisted of a full compliment of awkwardly placed analog monitors of oil pressure, temp, and battery. The analog clock even operates perfectly! The low fuel light and chime are operational and have been tested.
The Old's road manners are as new. Braking is impressive for a vintage wagon this large. There are no pulling forces in either direction. Steering is on point, with zero wander. Exhaust is quiet and in excellent condition. The Cruiser accelerates graciously without fault from a standstill, although without a sense of urgency as was intended during the time of emission control engine de-tuning. Tires are Dayton brand, and in nice condition. Original hubcaps ARE included, although I only have 2, as they tended to bounce off the car in any tight turn situation. I will include either the caps pictured, or the choice of one other full set of vintage metal caps in my possession if desired.
Floors contain zero rust and original undercoat spray is in place. Seemingly the only deviation from factory coatings are in a couple of the door openings. It appears the original owner brushed in a bit of red sealer paint over a few bits of cracking seam sealer from the assembly line. All trim is present, apart from the aforementioned fender filler panels in the front.The rubber window scrapers around the car are unbelievably in perfect supple condition.Weather stripping on the wagon is a 9 out of 10. The drivers door has a 8 inch section of abraded weatherstrip with a "repair" from the original owner. The car has no wind leaks or noises in the cabin at 75mph.
Drive this one home!
