It is believed that there are less than 300 of these wagons left in existence. That number includes every variety from those rusted to the ground with trees growing out of the backseat to ones like this, one of the world's finest examples of 2-Door Safari Custom.

The paint, chrome, and stainless on this car are perfect. During restoration, every single one of the 403 pieces of stainless and chrome were hand polished and triple-plated, respectively. The two-stage paint is brilliant red and white that shines with incredible depth. There are absolutely no scratches, scuffs, marks, dings, or chips in any of the paint or bright work.

With a fully photo-documented restoration, beginning with a rust-free original Safari, extreme attention to detail is displayed in every aspect of this wagon. Every element of the completely custom interior is of the highest standard from the custom Corinthian leather upholstery to the factory original and NOS components that make the dash look showroom new. Each working feature from the lit hood spears to the gauges to the back up lights works as expected.

"There is not an item on this Safari, not a staple or a screw, that has not been carefully selected and thoughtfully installed."

This 1957 Pontiac Safari Two Door Custom is the perfect example of a timeless classic coupled with modern technology. Its factory air-conditioning has been updated to operate like a brand new vehicle. The 455 CI Pontiac engine provides an abundance of power while the four-wheel power disc brakes deliver quick stopping ability. The custom, high-end sound system delivers quality sound coming from speakers hidden behind factory style, molded door panels. This is a fine looking wagon with a wealth of mechanical features making it extremely comfortable to drive.

This 1957 2-Door Custom Safari is the definition of eye-catching. Something about the sinuous body lines and all that gleaming chrome speaks to the heart of each person it passes. One doesn't necessarily need a vast collector car knowledge to appreciate this Pontiac, but for those who do, it encapsulates a workmanship and an exactness seldom duplicated.
