Well-Kept 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Up For Auction11
With the vast majority of North American consumers preferring crossovers and SUVs to station wagons, it’s easy to see why most major automakers, including General Motors, have dropped these types of vehicles from their lineups in the U.S. and Canada. That said, there are still plenty of appealing used American wagons out there – just take this extremely well-kept 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser S, for example, which was recently listed for sale via Bring-A-Trailer in San Jose, California.
While many retro cars featured on Bring-A-Trailer are show-worthy vehicles that command big price tags, this modest family wagon has lived a rather normal life, showing 54,000 miles on the odometer and displaying some evidence of everyday use like minor body blemishes and a small roof dent. That said, this car was very taken care of over the years and looks almost showroom new thanks to its glistening Light Adriatic Blue exterior (which includes recently repainted bumpers), original 14-inch wheels, near rust-free underbody and clean engine bay. Speaking of the engine bay, it houses a GM 3100 V6 engine, which sends power to the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission.
The interior of this Oldsmobile Cutlass is in similarly impressive shape with clean, tear-free blue cloth upholstery and a matching blue dashboard with no major cracks, bubbles or defects. The right side horn button has a crack in it, but other than that, this cabin looks the same as it did when this car left the production line back in 1993.
This Olds wagon is being offered at no reserve with some manufacturer’s literature, partial service records, a clean Carfax report and a clean California title. Bidding currently sits at $3,600 with around 21 hours left to bid on the vehicle before the gavel falls. Check out the listing at this link for more information and photos.

Wow, takes me back to my 1986 Lumina Euro Sport wagon. Bought it when first child was born. Sold ’76 C-10 stepside to get it. Was good family truckster. Silver with gray interior. Better than a minivan of the same time. Always liked wagons.
I thought the exact same thing – it took me back to fond memories of station wagons from my childhood. While not a head-turner in the looks department there is a certain chic about it – maybe it’s just me being nostalgic!!!!
We had an ’85 Chevy Celebrity wagon. Car took a large amount of abuse and kept on going. Went with my dad when he bought it in 87 – it was a very nice car for the day. Felt pretty strong with the 2.8 V6, adequate for the times. The MPFI just a couple years later really woke it up.
Grandparents had a Pontiac 6000 with the 2.5 Iron Duke – now that was a real slug.
Other grandparents had a Buick Century with the 3.3 V6 – that thing had some serious pep.
I’d buy it for nostalgia if I had a place to park it.
We had a ’94 Olds cierra wagon, one of 50 wagons I’ve owned since my ’64 chevy in 1975. The little Olds was a good car.
Check out the engine compartment. It looks like a box of snakes. Guess GM had yet to benchmark their competitors from overseas.
Proudly built in OKC, the J D Powers Gold award was awarded to the GM Oklahoma plant in 1992 for the Olds Ciera. The first time a GM assembly plant was the best factory in North America, GM built over 5 1/2 million vehicles during the 26 year history at OKC. Building all four A cars, Chevy Celebrity, Pontiac 6000, Olds Ciera and Buick Century. The Ciera wagon was cancelled after 1996, when the new Ciera was launched as a 1997 model, only a four door sedan was built until it was phased out in 2000. The Olds Ciera was the best selling models GM ever produced. It was a very reliable car, many customers repeatedly bought a newer model from 1982-2000.
Think everyone’s mom or grandparents drove one in the 80s my parents had the 1984 Buick century it didn’t have the rear facing 3rd row seats my grand parent s had the olds like this it had the 3 rd row I hated riding in that seat my mom is short and grandma was to so the front seat was moved all the way forward so more leg room not sure if any cars trucks suv today’s (wagons ) have bench seats
Put on a set of Rally wheels and might be a nice toy?
I had a summer job in college shuttling Avis cars around back in ’96. We had a slew of Cieras and boy those were fun to drive. Not sports-car fun, just kinda care-free fun. They were light and tossable compared to some of the lumbering larger cars we had. We drove them rather liberally, being they were corporate cars. That’s what made them fun. I don’t think we’ll ever see cars this simple again.
Love this. As a 3 row 8 seater, what a perfect vehicle to shuttle around our beach town, where we never get above 35mph and nothing is more than 3 miles away. Way more fun than a new SUV, and way cooler than a throbing muscly machine. Add some nerdy whitewalls and it’s the perfect summer fashion statement.
I thought the Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser was the style leader in station wagons. It was also a good performer with the V-8 350 or 455. Our kids loved traveling in it.
