Another family classic, the ’57 Pontiac Safari Transcontinental. These 4 door Safaris were offered mid model year in 1957 and are extremely rare with only 1,894 being produced. This one has been restored, and looks to have been done to a very high level of detail. This rare Safari is listed for $42,999. Find it here on craigslist out of Spring Hill, California.
The engine bay of this Safari is, dare we say, perfect. The 347 looks to be in wonderful condition, and the seller has stated that it is original to the car. The 3 deuces look the part, and the classic styled Delco battery really sets off the engine bay being a detail that makes you feel as if you are in a time warp. The engine and bay look clean enough to eat off of.
The interior looks nice with some low key updates sprinkled throughout. The dash board is beautiful, and features a few extra gauges to mind the engine. There are also hidden speakers in the foot wells, but they aren’t immediately obvious. The choice in fabric for the interior matches the cars exterior nicely. The interior door panel trim looks mint and has great styling, also giving a dividing line of color.
This classic wagon is a rare beauty that could easily be a toy and a great way to get the family to car events. We love the feasibility of classic wagons for those who otherwise cannot convince their spouses to allow a “cool car” in the family. There are plenty of places to go and see with this classic Safari. Where would you go, or what would you do with this ’57 Safari Transcontinental?
