1964-1972 Oldsmobile Vista-Cruiser Specifications

In its day, the Oldsmobile Vista-Cruiser attracted a devoted band of customers. When the producers of the television comedy That '70s Show needed a typical period family car for the main characters, they cast a '70 Vista-Cruiser in the role.

Considering that they have become popular collectible vehicles today, the appeal of GM's dome-top wagons remains strong. We give you the goods on this car for its entire nine-year model run with our charts of 1964-1972 Oldsmobile Vista-Cruiser Specifications.
