About Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

As a name used on many models of 1940-1947, the most renown Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's brand Oldsmobile between 1971 and 1992 as a luxury station wagon. Originally introduced to take the place of the Oldsmobile 88 Fiesta, Custom Cruiser shared platforms with Buick, Pontiac, and Chevrolet full-size wagons. As the first full-size Oldsmobile station wagon since the 1964 88 Fiesta, the production of Custom Cruiser lasted for three generations.
The second-generation Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser was produced from 1977 to 1990 and debuted in 1977. Built based on the B platform, Custom Cruiser became a smaller and lighter 4-door station wagon. Receiving a restyle in 1980 with a lower front fascia, lighter doors and window mechanisms, and shorter wood grained side panels, Custom Cruiser was powered by a standard 5.7 L V8, an optional 6.6 L V8, 5.0 L V8 and a 5.7 L diesel engine, these engines sent power through the 3-speed and 4-speed turbo-hydramatic automatic transmissions. Then the last generation Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser appeared as a redesigned version with a second-row sunroof reminiscent of the Vista Cruiser. Featured the body-on-frame configuration, Custom Cruiser then got power from a 5.0 L V8 rated at 170 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque and a 5.7 L V8 cranking out 180 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, both engines sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
