Ron Bodner's 1967 Vista Cruiser

ronbodnervista_1.jpg (36939 bytes)

I found this metallic maroon 1967 Vista Cruiser Custom wagon last year. It was stored in a garage nearby and was surprised that it was a "one owner", 72,000 mile original!  The owner, whom I knew slightly, had put a new motor in the vehicle in 1977, replacing the hi-comp. 330, 4bbl. with a 350 from a '76. The swap was done poorly and it leaked oil and didn't perform as well, so he parked it in the garage, bought a new vehicle and I found it 20 years later!  It has some minor paint scratches and dents but no rust and the front seat needs repair, but is otherwise "mint"! The picture tells, all, just polished and touched up! I will paint it next year and put in the "reworked" 455 block that I removed from my 67 post coupe. I intend to use the wagon to tow my coupe to the drag races and car shows both in Canada and the US, as I just retired and this is what I want to do with my time!
