1956 Pontiac Safari Two-Door Station Wagon


Recommended Posts

As befits its rarity, this fine example has been the recipient of a thorough restoration, completed circa 2005. The wonderfully period colors of Sun Beige and Sandalwood Tan in which it is finished are those in which it was delivered from the factory in Wilmington, Delaware, as confirmed by the data plate. It also boasted the 'Comfort and Convenience package', including tissue dispenser, from new. Also displayed is a rare lighted 1956 Pontiac Hood Ornament!

Engine is the 317cid V8, Pontiac Strat-o-Streak rated at 227hp and automatic transmission, which were both rebuilt. The speedometer was rebuilt at the time of restoration and shows less than 1,000 miles driven since restored. The original clock has been converted to quartz along with a upgraded radio, rebuilt power steering box, new Coker white wall tires, tissue dispenser, front bumper push bar, new dual exhaust ran correctly through the frame, fuel tank cleaned and reconditioned, brakes all rebuilt. Since completion of the restoration this Safari has seen very limited use but has enjoyed regular and diligent maintenance.

An interesting footnote to the history of this Safari is that it was once owned by Bob Shane, lead singer of 'The Kingston Trio'. A large binder of documentation including an original owner's manual and historical information accompanies the car, including a photo of the car during Shane's ownership, with his autograph. Price is $65,000.00 or Offer. Car is located in St. Louis, MO. just minutes from the St. Louis Airport. SEE MORE PHOTOS AT www.robertpass.com post-55492-143141743577_thumb.jpg
