For its third and final model year, the sporty two-door 1957 Pontiac Star Chief Safari station wagon continued to provide a more elegant alternative to the Chevrolet Nomad. “About eight years ago, this Safari was the subject of a no-expense-spared, fully documented, body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration with a commitment to originality,” the seller proclaims, thus “it has been restored to a very high standard.” The seller is representing the vehicle on consignment.
It’s one of just 1,292 built for 1957, and also features a raft of desirable options including the Tri-Power version of the 347-cu.in. Pontiac V-8, Strato-Flight Hydra-Matic transmission, power steering and brakes, factory air conditioning, and a Wonder Bar AM radio. “This car runs and drives flawlessly,” the seller reports.
