OLDSMOBILE V8 POWERED STATION WAGON TRIBUTE -- FIESTA VISTA CRUISER CUTLASS CUSTOM CRUISER
OLDSMOBILE STATION WAGON TRIBUTE. NOT ALL OLDS WAGONS ARE REPRESENTED DUE
TO THE LACK OF AVAILABILITY OF SOME YEARS AND MODELS. OTHERS OMMISIONS
STEM FROM THE LACK OF OLDSMOBILE POWERED ENGINES. 61-62 F-85 USED A BUICK
215 V-8, MANY 78-82 CUTLASS CRUISERS USED A STANDARD 260 OLDS V8 BUT THE
305 CHEVY V8 WAS OPTIONAL, AND THE 91-92 CUSTOM CRUISERS ARE CHEVY POWERED
COOKIE CUTTER BUICK ROADMASTER CHEVY CAPRICES AS IF MOST 77 AND LATER GM
CARS ARENT COOKIE CUTTER CLONES ENOUGH. I WANTED THE CLOSING SHOT TO BE
THE 1990 CUSTOM CRUISER. LAST OLDS V-8, LAST CARBUERATED GM ENGINE.
THE OLDS V8 HAD COME FULL CIRCLE FROM THE FIRST OVERHEAD VALVE V8 IN 1949
WITH 303 CUBIC INCHES AND 135 HP TO THE LAST CARBUERATED GM
V8 WITH 307 CUBIC INCHES AND 140 HP.
These are some of the wagons at WagonFest '09 heading out from the park.
I'd say about 1/3 of them.
1967 Plymouth Fury wagon with Crossram Sonoramic Longram induction on a 440 ci engine. Wild
Here is one of my first overall build up projects, Every nut and bolt came
out of this car over a 5yr period. I figured that since I was building a
weird car (at that time in 1994 no one was in to station wagons except me I
think) That I should have a wild and weird engine compartment, What you
see is a factory Chrysler intake with a few modern tweaks and upgrades ,
such as billet throttle linkage, carbon fiber air cleaner tops, Indy car
suspension mount for an engine torque rod. It was a great and fun car that
won many awards and was featured in several national magazines, it was even
on the cover of Mopar Collectors Guide! looking back now it seems funny,
I sold a 1972 340 Challenger Rallye car to build the wagon , That E body
is now worth a whole bunch more money than when I sold it. Even so, if
I had it all to do over again I wouldn't have changed a thing, I had so
much fun with the big wagon that it wouldnt have compared with just a
"plain" O'l E body
Rambler Ambassador Cross Country 1962
This car is owned by my missus and me. It's completely original and
unrestored apart from a respray about 20 years ago. Engine is the Rambler
327ci V8 and it has the optional 4bbl Holley carburator. Car also has power
brakes and power steering. No AC or power windows though.
Update: the transmission was leaking oil and was completely overhauled in
1966 Nova Wagon: TAPOUT Terror - /BIG MUSCLE
• Tim "SkyScrape" Katz
Most people who want to go road racing don't start off in a 48-year old
station wagon. However it you're Tim "SkyScrape" Katz, the co-founder of
"TAPOUT" you just say "F*CK IT", and build a wagon with the big 'ole V8
engine, a basketball size turbo, a roll
cage and four racing seats so the family can come along for the ride. Tim's
1966 Chevrolet Nova Wagon was built in his garage and is anything but
stock. Sure it's got some trick parts, but if you think it's a high-dollar
resto-rod, think again as Tim's not only one helluva wrench, but one of the
most die-hard car guys you're ever likely to meet.
1958 CHEVY NOMAD STATION WAGON - 1 OF 10 '58 WAGON CHOICES
Another example of a spectacular station wagon is viewed here. There were
3 '58 Chevy wagon models: The Yeoman, at the low end, mid-level
Brookwood, and at the top the Nomad. Here are the ten wagon choices: The
Yeoman 2-door, L head 6 & V8, Yeoman 4-door, L head 6 & V8, Brookwood 4-
door, 6 passenger, L head 6 & V8, & 4-door 9 passenger, L head & V8, and
the Nomad - four doors only with L head 6 & V8. This year wagons had
larger liftgate which were curved at the corners and hinged into the roof
and raised out of the way. Also this year, a newlow slung X member frame
containing an all coil suspension ridding the old rear leaf springs. The
L-head 6 engine is a 235 cid with 145 hp. The V8 engines are 283 cid with
a hp range from 185 - 290, and another V8 with 348 cid at 280 - 315 hp.
The weight of this 4 door Nomad is 3,771 lbs., and cost $ 2,835 at the
dealer. This Silver Blue beauty is another example of an excellent
restoration or a splendid original survivor, I couldn't tell you. But
take this all in and savor the look and feel of this great looking Nomad.
Thanks very much for viewing this rare Chevy Nomad station wagon.
