Up for sale is a super rare first year numbers matching 1964 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser Custom Series 9-passenger wagon with factory air! Some of its newer or notable points include:

Dual exhaust all the way out to the rear.
Very expensive gel battery
Engine has been chromed out with period Mickey Thompson valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. Also new chrome alternator.
It's just been completely tuned and serviced and runs like a top! The transmission shifts correctly and doesn't leak fluid, or the motor oil for that matter.
The factory air components are all hooked up, but it needs a shot of Freon.
The interior is mostly original and does show some wear and tear (patina). The front seat has been reupholstered in the original design and color. The dash pad has been replaced at some point and is in decent condition. Has a new gas gauge that works. All lights, horn, ORIGINAL RADIO, turn signals, wipers, heater, etc. work with a new antenna.
Brand new tires and a set of American Racing wheels with less than 50 miles on them!
New shocks and brakes
Rear tailgate has power window that works and the gate functions properly.
Just repainted in its original color of Provincial White
Rear two seats all fold down for hauling, which is a really nice feature.

It's got some rust in the usual Vista places (quarters, rockers, around the windows, etc.) and the upper glass will need some repair work (no leaks though), but it does have all the original sheet metal, floor pans, quarter panels, etc. It's got quite a bit of potential and makes a nice appearance as you can see in the pictures especially as a driver, which is what we've used it for. Not a show car, more of a go car. According to the previous owner, it was owned before him by an Olds mechanic of 30 years, which is why it is so well-maintained mechanically. The odometer shows ~81,000 miles, but the drivetrain has less on it.

It's one of 7000 built originally in the top of the line Custom series, making it a rare wagon with so many factory options! All in all, it is a running working wagon and a fantastic example of a rare 3-seat Vista Cruiser survivor from the first year. My Dad did a lot of general maintenance, detail-work, etc. over the last 3 months. We have a clear Ohio title with no liens. Below is a break-down of the VIN and Trim Tag along with the NADA book value and some additional pictures.

This vehicle is over 52 years old and is being sold AS-IS with NO guarantees expressed or implied. We are not responsible for shipping, the buyer will need to make arrangements, we will help load. We are open for pick-up times due to my father being retired. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to schedule an appointment to view the Cruiser in person. Also, if you have any questions, please ask them PRIOR to making an offer.
