1955 Pontiac Safari Modified

1955 Pontiac Safari Modified - Details

This 2-door station wagon was built by a GMC Dealer in Georgia in 2000 and was featured in many magazine articles at the time. No expenses were spared in the complete build of a very rare car. While the exterior was kept 100% original (other than the 17” wheels), the Engine, Transmission, Steering and Brakes were replaced with all new components. Window glass and wiring are new and all chrome was replated. Genuine ivory leather seating adds to the improved interior. Vintage air conditioning keeps the car cool. Engine is a brand new 350 cubic inch “crate engine”.

Car has power steering and power disc brakes. It has been driven under 4,000 miles since it was rebuilt, so is close to being a “new car”. While car was originally painted pearl white, it was repainted in our restoration shop in 2009 in a base-coat, clear-coat copper metallic and ivory pearl, very close to the original colors in 1955. New Daytona Weave Carpet was added. One of the big features of this car is the custom engine cover made by Bob Darney, with graphics by Matt Willoughby. Indian heads light up with hidden switch! Car can be driven anywhere at any speed.
