Family Friendly Entertainment: 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Wagon

The 1991-1992 model year only Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser was the last conventional front-engine rear-drive passenger vehicle from the oldest surviving US automobile marque (Oldsmobile)…at least at that time.  It was, of course, a badge engineered version of the Chevrolet Caprice and Buick Roadmaster, and offers an interesting take on the classic American wagon.  Find this 1992 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Wagon offered for $2,200 in Gulfport, MS via craigslist.  Tip from FuelTruck.

Wheresas the Roadmaster version came with standard faux wood siding (although a wood delete option was available), and the Caprice wagon was plain sided standard, the Custom Cruiser only came with a two-tone look — painted on top and darker accent color under the rub strip.  The Oldsmobile also was equipped with a corporate grill, but just about every other part was the same across the three cousins.  It wasn’t GMs most egregious example of badge engineering, but the overlap on prices & features is silly when you think about it.

Unfortunately they didn’t make the Custom Cruiser through 1994, so you don’t get the beefy Multi-point fuel injected LT1 V8, instead you’ll have to make do with a TPI L05 V8 rated at 180 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs of torque mated to an automatic gearbox.
