Such a well-presented vintage wagon is always in demand. After all, this 1973 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser wagon is a distinct and loaded classic. That means everything you want is in place, including the cool electronic tailgate, air-conditioned eight-person interior, and its original big Rocket V8.

There\'s an irresistible kind of style to this wagon. Emerald Green is the factory-correct color, and it has been given a respray later in life to have a good mix of a nice shine but a mature/classic attitude. So it goes well with the wood paneling that may even be original to the wagon. So it\'s distinctive while still being both vintage and road-ready. Big chrome bumpers, wire wheel covers, whitewall tires, a luggage rack, and fender skirts make for a terrifically detailed style. But your favorite classic piece will likely be the disappearing tailgate. These premium GM wagons were known for making jaws drop when you turn the rear key lock, and the glass would disappear into the roof while the tailgate simultaneously disappeared into the body.

Inside is a mostly original interior that looks fantastic. Even the details are correct, right down to the storage well with jack instructions. You get three rows of button-top saddle brown seating. While both rear rows will fold flat for the ultimate tailgater, this is so big, you even have storage when all of them are up! The Custom Cruiser was an expensive Olds, and so you know it\'s full of luxury options such as power windows, a tilt steering column, power locks, and a power seat. There\'s plenty of great wood-like trim to coordinate with the exterior, especially on the dash and steering wheel. In fact, that wraparound display is one of the interior\'s coolest features. After all, no matter how many people are with you, this feels like a personal cruiser with all the major controls right at the driver\'s fingertips. This includes the cold-blowing R134a air conditioning, an upgraded AM/FM/CD radio with Bluetooth, and even remote controls for that cool tailgate.

Under the hood is the ideal motor for a classic like this. You want to be able to move this big wagon with proper authority, and so you have Oldsmobile\'s 455 cubic-inch big block. The V8 inhales deeply with an upgraded four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with added power and plenty of authority as headers feed a newer stainless dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is the right one to handle big muscle while also being an easy cruiser. So with other features like power steering, power brakes with front discs, and modern tread behind the classic whitewall style, this is the right choice for those who like to drive their classics.

A well-preserved classic wagon is hard to find. So when one looks this good, offers this much luxury, and is priced so right, you know you need to hurry to take it home. Call today!!!
