About Pontiac Safari

First applied to Pontiac's version of the Chevrolet Nomad, Pontiac Safari was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's brand Pontiac between 1955 and 1957, 1958 and 1991 as well as 1987 and 1989 as a station wagon. Originally introduced along with the Chevrolet Nomad station wagon, Safari shared body components with it. But after being manufactured for two generations, due to the decreasing popularity of full-size station wagons, Pontiac Safari gave the name to GMC Safari minivan and it was replaced by the Pontiac Trans Sport in 1990.
Since most people have more interest in the more recent Pontiac Safari, we will focus on the second-generation Pontiac Safari, which was produced from 1958 to 1989. It was the successor of the previous-generation sport wagon body style and it was a full-size station wagon model. Sharing body with Chevrolet Delray station wagon, Safari as a 2-door station wagon was popular among tradespeople and small businesses. Apart from the base model, its top-of-the-line trim would be the Grand Safari. During its lifetime, Safari was powered by either a 6.6 L V8 or a 7.7 L V8, and both engines sent power through the 2-speed Hydramatic transmission to the rear wheels.
