Maybe it’s not quite a little old lady who only drove to church and the grocery store, but the Pick of the Day is a 1978 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser station wagon that the private seller says is a one-owner car and that owner was a school teacher.

The wagon shows only 57,207 miles on its odometer, according to the advertisement on ClassicCars.com

The seller says the car comes with “all original documentation since new.”

The seller also notes that the car has new Edlebrock intake and carburetor, valve-cover gaskets, air filter and cleaner, wood steering wheel, radiator, battery and recharged air conditioning that “blows ice cold.”

Also new are the exhaust system and front shocks, and the original “flat pancake hub caps” come with the car. The headliner and sun visors have been recovered, the advertisement advised.

“The car runs and drives perfectly,” the seller said, adding that there are two quarter-sized rust spots on the bottom of one fender and on the dog leg, but the “underside is perfect.”

The size of the engine isn’t specified, but it is reported to be original and linked to an automatic transmission. The wagon has power brakes and steering, AM/FM audio.

The vehicle is located in Middletown, Connecticut. The asking price is $12,995.
