The rise in popularity of the family SUV/crossover throughout the 1990s and early 2000s came at the expense of the tried-and-true station wagon. While wagons were once the go-to vehicle for road-tripping American families, this mantle has since been taken up by crossovers and full-size SUVs. That said, used wagons now represent great value for money, offering up swathes of space and near-endless practicality at a fraction of the cost of a newer utility vehicle or pickup. Just take this well-looked-after 1991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Wagon, for example, which is currently being auctioned off via Cars and Bids with no reserve price.
This beautiful B-body wagon, currently located in Lagrange, Ohio, has just 29,300 miles on the odometer and comes with a clean, accident-free CarFax report. According to the lot listing on Cars and Bids, it sold for a reasonable $25,077 when new and was ordered with a rather long list of optional extras, including the available Vista Roof, leather upholstery, automatic climate control and the Towing Package. The 5.0L L03 V8 engine was rated at 170 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque from the factory, routing power to the rear wheels only via a four-speed 4L60 automatic transmission.
The current owner made some unique modifications to this Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, as well, including new 15-inch “Baby Moon,” wheels, a woodgrain-look vinyl wrap and tinted windows. It underwent a major service back in 2016, receiving an oil and filter change, new spark plugs, new diff fluid, a new diff gasket, a new radiator and a new water pump, among more, but has racked up roughly 10,000 miles since then. The oil was last changed in October of 2016 at 22,008 miles.
Bidding for this 19991 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Wagon sits at $5,902 as of this writing, with six days left before the gavel falls. Check out the listing at this link for more information and photos.
