What a good project to start with. My 55 wagon now under construction was nowhere as solid as your 56. These Pathfinder wagons are as scare as
"hen's teeth". Low production numbers and extremely low survivor rate. I hope someone decides to take on this project. and save another piece of Canadian automotive history.

Hey, I can help pollute the Poncho site with Chevrolet's. biggrin

Kind of a unique wagon. Over all in nice shape steel wise, the interior was redone before I bought the car. The guy who owned it before me worked in a upholstery shop, did a wicked job. The car does need a off frame restore to tidy it up, just collecting a pile of parts before I start. It's in the factory colour, but screams to be black with the red guts and and fresh trim.

Agree - I owned one black car, 1959 Ford convertible, IMPOSSIBLE to keep it clean, I swore
never again to have a black car. (This was even before moving to Florida, where it is stupid
to have a black car because of the intense sun.)

Thanks for the complements guys. Yup, it's a boat, it's still riding on the oem springs with wore out air shocks and lines ripped off.....but it does sit nice. The car is from the south and came to Ont. in '82 with several owners before me. Chris (aka Arcadian) and I were having tea one day and mentioned he knew of this wagon that he was sure was a big block, I checked it out and bought it. So it is a 427/385hp, 400th, 12 bolt, I think 3.31. Unfortunately it has suffered the same fate as many big block wagons...........it's been raped. Someone cannibalized the drive train and left it with a small block??/350th and a 10 bolt. And fairly Mcgivered. disbelief

I should of got a pic of the trim tag, but it's in storage. Here's part of the line sheet.

Here ya go!

First 2 are from May 1979 at Brainerd, before I picked up and installed a roof rack.
You can see how the lower half of the wagon was "woodgrain" with a nice chrome
trim strip that came up over the wheel openings. Note that the racecar is in class
B Production, I ran a 355, big blocks were in A Production back then.

Vistacruiser-01.jpg 

Vistacruiser-02.jpg 

Last 2 are after I had the racecar painted, still BP (later they merged the A Sedan
Camaros with the Corvettes into one class, GT-1). Sorry, not too much of the
Vistacruiser shows, but in the first picture you can see (I lightened up that part of
the picture, eh?) my top box just inside the tailgate for ready access to tools, and
the jack on the tailgate to keep it out from underfoot. I don't know who those
people are, must be with the car next to me in the paddock.

Vistacruiser-03a.jpg

In the last picture you can see the baby moons I had on it and you can see that
the back is full of spare parts and tools. The taller guy in the middle is me, hard to
believe I was once skinny and had all that dark hair smile.gif

Vistacruiser-04.jpg 

That's about it for my 1969 Vistacruiser photos.

I missed your pics Dave.That wagon was a real workhorse,doing what they do best,hauling racecars.Those are sure vintage eh,look at the pimped out vans in the background.The wheels on the Vette are perfect for the car too.Thanks for posting.Oh and the scallopes I was mentioning were from the Buick.

I miss that car. It sure pulled my car trailer very nicely. Eventually I put a 2.56 12 bolt posi in it and a later generation pollution Qjet. I had it pretty lean but it would easily get over 20mpg on trips that way. I once weighed it at a farm fertilizer scale and it was a hair over 5000 pounds but many people told me that it's impossible that it was that heavy so I'm not sure.

13.8 at a 105 are some good numbers for a big old wagon with a 327. You got to love those small blocks.

This car was very well optioned from the factory. Back in about 82 or 83 there was a 67 427 Impala wagon advertised in the Old Car Trader. I wonder if this was it.
