If the Satellite had a sport hood that looked good, (not a stick on crappo scoop) I would pick that one.

Since it doesn't then I have to go with the Olds.

Olds for sure. Great looking wagons. It would be a closer contest without the silly 440 and Plymouth lettering though.

If it isn't a Vista Cruiser it isn't worth having, so the Plymouth for me, sans ricky racer decals.

I like the design (shape) of the Plymouth better, but the Olds is the better executed restoration to my eye.
I prefer a stock look with the business stuff not immediately apparent, let alone advertised.
Not a luggage rack fan, either.

Since I've owned a Dodge version of the Plymouth wagon, neither of those two would be on my driveway, but if those two were the only choice, it would not be the Olds. The stickers on the Plymouth would be gone really fast.

Plymouth: Leaner, more integrated front end. Bumper blends with the grille for a more compact look.
Buick too bulky and scattered: awkward shaped bumper, park lamps in bumper, 2 large rectangular grille openings. No-Go.
I guess the hood scoops "grab" everyone's attention.
Rack on any wagon is a go.
Scoops on a wagon: maybe.

Those Olds front ends are F'ing UGLY. That Plymouth wagon any day.


I love the smell of Deer guts in the morning, it smells like... VICTORY!

Both look great from the era.I'd pick the Plymouth,besides the obvious...My mom had a '71 sedan in gold like the hood insert shown.Sleek lines for a sedan the B bodies had then. Decals would have to go,probably black out the hood and fender tops on all that white.

Olds... Even being a F-85 (short wheelbase, short rear door, no sunroof)

The 71 Plymouth 4 door front ends are not very sporty or appealing. If it had a RR/GTX front end on it, that would be cool.

The Plymouth/Dodge B-body wagons had a cheap look that was a little outdated. The Sedan-like rear window surrounds is something from the early-mid 60's. And that continuous rain gutter that's not needed for the rear windows. Makes it look like the top of a Tin can.

Biggest motor you could get in B-body wagon was a 383/400.

Olds wagon had optional 455 from 70-72. And even rated at 365 hp in 1970, same as 442 std motor rating. The Colonnade 73-up wagons had 455 available to start too.

It's better to keep your mouth shut and give the impression that you're stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
