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.
1959 Chevrolet Brookwood Station Wagon Classic TV Commercial

1958 PLYMOUTH CUSTOM SUBURBAN STATION WAGON - VERY RARE
1957 & '58 PLYMOUTHS SOLD WELL ENOUGH BUT FEW ARE AROUND TODAY INTACT.
THEY TURNED INTO RUST BUCKETS EARLY. THE '57 MODEL PLYMOUTH INTRODUCED A
NEW RADICAL DESIGN AND A FEW FEATURE CHANGES GRACED THE 58'S. THE PLYMOUTH
MODELS STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM WERE: PLAZA, SAVOY, BELVEDERE, SUBURBAN AND
TOP OF THE LINE FURY. SUBURBAN MODELS WERE ALL STATION WAGONS. IN 1957,
WAGONS SOLD 102,000 UNITS. IN 1958, WAGONS SOLD 129,000 UNITS. WITH THIS
MANY STATION WAGONS SOLD IN TWO MODEL YEARS YOU WOULD THINK THERE WOULD BE
MORE SURVIVORS. IT WAS THE RUST THAT DID THEM IN PARTICULARILY AROUND THE
HEADLIGHT " EYEBROWS ". THIS WAGON SHOWN COSTS $2,607 AND WAS POWERED BY A
V-8, 350 CID ENGINE. BUT LOOK AT THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR WITH JUST OVER
67,000 MILES. THE FIFTIES TYPE INTERIOR IS PERFECT. GREAT LOOKING DASH
WITH THOSE WONDERFUL PUSH BUTTON CONTROLS, PERFECT SEAT UPHOSTERY, AND
PERFECT HEADLINER. ALL THE CHROME AND TRIM SEEMS FLAWLESS. ALL IT NEED IS
SOME BODY WORK ESPECIALLY OVER THE HEADLIGHTS, AND NEW PAINT AND THIS WOULD
BE A PERFECT RESTORATION. Another rare original survivor brought to you by
55lincoln. THANKS SO MUCH FOR VIEWING.
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.
1958 CHEVY YEOMAN STATION WAGON, READY FOR RESTORATION
ALL THIS RARE STATION WAGON NEEDS IS A FRESH COAT OF PAINT. THE INTERIOR
IS IN GREAT CONDITION. THE GLASS, THE CHROME IS ALL THERE AND FLAWLESS.
SAME WITH THE GRILLE AND BUMPERS. THE BISCAYNE / YEOMAN STATION WAGON WAS
AT THE LOW END OF THE '58 MODELS. ALTHOUGH 1958 SAW 195,583 CHEVY WAGONS
IN ALL MODELS SOLD THIS YEAR, THE LOW END YEOMAN 2 AND 4 DOOR WAGONS WERE
A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OVERALL CHEVY WAGONS SOLD. THIS ONE SOLD FOR $2,467
WITH THE L HEAD 6 ENGINE. THE L6 ENGINE WAS A 235 CID WITH ONLY 145 BHP.
SORT OF A WEAK ENGINE FOR THIS CARGO HAULER. BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN
ORDERED WITH A V8 283 CID WITH AS MUCH AS 230 BHP. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A
GOOD CHOICE OF ENGINE TO PULL THIS 3,740 LB. VEHICLE. THIS FEATURE WAGON
IS THE KIND OF ORIGINAL SURVIVOR THAT YOU WOULD LOVE TO RESTORE. ALL THAT
RUST AND WEAR TO SAND OFF AND APPLY NEW TROPIC TURQUOISE PAINT. IT APPEARS
THAT THE WHEELS HAVE BEEN REPAINTED IN ORIGINAL AEGEAN TURQUOISE PAINT.
THIS RARE WAGON IS INDEED READY FOR RESTORATION. Another original survivor
car brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.

1958 Edsel Villager Station Wagon
Ford, being the station wagon king, could not refrain from making a wagon
version for Edsel! Fairly rare, according to the owner, only 62 now known
A three tone color combination...not sure if it's original. Note the
continental tire on the rear tailgate. Very unusual..have never seen
another. Pushbutton automatic, drum type speedometer.
