Thread: Safari owners?

  1. #1

    Default Safari owners?

    Hi all, I couldn't find an introductions page anywhere, so I guess this will have to do. My name is Justin, I live in New Zealand.

    I have a 1956 Pontiac Safari, and just wondered if there are any other Safari owners on here, it would be good to share some info.

    Cheers, Justin

    Here she is....... the plan is to keep it pretty stock, but lower it about a foot, add some radials, and drive the wheels off it!

    Default '56 Pontiac/Safari Question

    Does anyone have a list of assembly plants for 1956? The first letter in the serial number designates where the cars were built.
    Where were Safaris built?

    Thanks,

    Doug and I have been e-talking offline -- while I figured out how to get into this forum and answer questions. I think I answered his questions offline but for the rest of you, the answers to all his questions can be found as follows:

    1. Go to www.PontiacSafari.com
    2. Click on "Pontiac Info" in list of links on the left of the page
    3. On the page that opens, click on the third link, "Identification Tags"

    On that page you'll find an explanation of the ID plates/tags for mid/late 50's Pontiacs.

    All tri-five Chevy and Pontiac station wagons were built at the Cleveland Fisher Body plant. The Pontiac bodies were shipped to Pontiac assembly plants around the nation where they were mated to the chasses, drive train installed, and assembly completed.

    Justin in New Zeleand, do you know if your Safari in original colors? Solid color Safaris seem to be rare.

    Hi there, sorry I wasn't ignoring you I haven't logged in here for a long time, and I didn't get an email notification.

    Good question! I'm not sure if it's the original color, as I have no idea where to find out, and I haven't noticed any other colors while working on the car. Is there an easy way?

    Cheers, Justin
