1957 Pontiac Safari

The Pontiac Safari was a two-door sport wagon, produced from 1955 through 1957, and shared a similar design to the Chevrolet Nomad. During its production lifespan, the Safari received moderate updates that included changes to the grille and side trim. Even though the Nomad and Safari shared a similar body, the Safari sat atop a longer chassis and had a wider wheelbase.

The interior featured a sliding rear-seat window while the tailgate and other areas were adorned in chrome, adding to its sporty-motif. After 1957, the name Safari was a suffix on the Pontiac LeMans station wagons, Bonneville, and Parisienne.
