HISTORY OF THE PONTIAC SAFARI: Based upon the 1954 Corvette Nomad Motorama car, the Pontiac Safari wagon was produced from 1955-1957. Even though it shared many mechanical components with the Chevrolet Nomad to help spread cost evenly at GM, the Safari had a wider wheelbase, and much more luxurious appointments, with nearly all options included as standard. Harley Earl oversaw the design to include chrome trim that flowed from front to rear of the car, giving a more unified look. Station wagon buyers looked for utility vehicles with four doors with an afordable price. Both Chevrolet and Pontiac buyers were reluctant to buy GM’s new two-door luxury wagons. The Safari’s sales were not very strong, just like the Nomad’s. Over their three year run, the Motorama inspired Safaris sold just 9,094 cars while the Chevy Nomad moved 20,092 units. For 1958, the Safari name was applied to standard Pontiac wagons and GM’s dream car station wagons were left to history. As of 2004, it was estimated that only 302 examples of the 1956 Pontiac Safari wagon exist, and only 37 of those resided in the state of California, making this a truly rare and unique piece of Pontiac and American automotive history.
