I own a '69 Vista, and its one of the best things I've ever had. A 350/400TH with 376,000-odd miles on it, (over 100,000 of them done by us) it has proved itself virtually unstoppable. I've done many updates/upgrades, as it used to be a logger's crummy. We've put several sets of new tires on it, as well as all new suspension, brakes, new motor, new interior, new paint, but the original, untouched transmission is still in the car. AWESOME CAR! I'm looking for another. Mike.
I am trying to find a Vista Cruiser that has the semi-raised roof with windows. I don't know where to find one.
They pop up on ebay quite often if you are looking for one or try cars-on-line dot com too.
Yeah, I'm also looking for one to buy. It still seems hard to find them, but I'm trying. I need a car for me and my friends to cruise around in, and what's better than a Vista Cruiser?
I once owned a new 1968 Olds Vista Cruiser, and it was an excellent car until it had 6000 miles on it. That is when it saved my life. A 1967 Ford convertible came over the divider and it was in mid-air when I hit it. Nearly cut the Ford in half. My Olds saved my life. It was scrapped for $200. All 5 kids in the car with the wife. It was such a great car that I replaced it with a new 1969 Olds Vista-Cruiser.
Well something better on gas might be good for cruising around in. We had a '70 when I was a kid and I loved that car. It got 12 mpg, but gas was about $.35 per gallon. I still remember my mom complaining that it took over $8 to fill it!! It had a huge tank on it. We pulled our boat with it too. Such a cool car to take trips in back then. I wouldn't mind a mint example of one today, but I wouldn't be cruising too much in it as that would add up quick!
