|Model||2 DR SAFARI (NOMAD) SW !!!!SOLD!!!! BARRETT JACKSON SCOTTSDALE AZ!!!!!!!!!!!!|
The 1955 Safari was built using shared body components with Chevrolet's Nomad Station Wagon, which would also allow both divisions to share in the tooling costs for the special bodied wagons. The Safari was fitted with Pontiac's unique front-end bumper/grille assembly and sheet metal and rear tail light design, both created by Pontiac stylist Paul Gillan. Gillan received a United States patent for the bumper/grille design.
The Safari featured sport-coupe front doors, extra chrome adorning the tailgate and interior, and sliding rear-seat windows. Like the Nomad, the "B" pillar of the station wagon was raked forward, a flourish not shared with other GM two-door station wagons from that era.
Interior trim, upholstery and bright work were equal to Pontiac's top line Star Chief range of models, however the Safari was actually the only model in the Star Chief Custom (Series 27). Production of the 1955 Safari stood at a model year production of 3,760, making it the lowest production Pontiac for 1955.
Safari was a name first applied to Pontiac's version of the 2-door Nomad station wagon. The body style, originally exhibited as a 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Motorama concept car, was shifted to Chevrolet and Pontiac full-size 1955 production vehicles because of the perceived greater sales potential.
This car has the power pack 287 motor option not produced until later in the model year. This one is tight and runs great!!! It's a nomad that's a lot more rare. A great opportunity to own a rare Nomad wagon investing only $38950.00
