For Sale: 1957 Pontiac Safari in Vancouver, British Columbia

Vehicle Description

Extremely rare. Pontiac’s most expensive 1957 car. Introduced in the last six months of the year, the Star Chief was given a Bonneville upgrade. Only a handful of the 1,894 produced have survived and this is the only known Tri-Power with all original numbers matching.

Purchased in Colorado, this rust-free car has had a complete mechanical rebuild and paint job in a magnificent Inca Metallic Blue. Excellent original interior with new front and rear seat upholstery. Reclining passenger seat with original headrest. (Invented in 1921 by Benjamin Katz, headrests did not appear as a standard option until the 1968 Volvo.)  

This Transcontinental Tri-Power Safari has all the options available in 1957 except air, power windows and seats.  Original mileage unknown.  Less than 2,200 miles driven since engine rebuild. The extensive chrome and stainless is excellent.
