While shopping for others I tend to buy a treat or two for myself. Ran into this while looking for 1/24 scale Greenlight trailers. Anyway this is the classic Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. Probably the most iconic of the wagon of that period. Not quite as cool as a Nomad or Woodie (despite the simulated wood).
The vista in the Vista Cruiser is that raised area in the rear cargo section and the passenger in that rear area got that enhanced view. I am looking up how that seat in the rear was set up. We had a Mercury Wagon with the rear seats facing each other. It was rather cramped and was rarely used. OK there it is. It faces forward. The back of the second row folds down so small people can crawl over and get into the seat. Our Mercury used the rear door so that was easier than the Olds to enter. I am thinking those windows along the roof were more a style than functional yet it allows for more cargo space. It does look neat regardless.
