1957 PONTIAC SAFARI TRANSCONTINENTAL 4 DOOR WAGON

Recommended Posts

The guy who's doing the resto work is top shelf and specializes in Pontiacs, so if it turns out with 75% of the attention to detail he normally bestows on his show cars, the opening bid is definately underpriced.

Very interesting car, and I have a couple of questions. What makes it "Transcontinental"? Was that an actual trim level that year? And I'm very curious to see assembly line photos of these cars in the paint shop... the two-tone process, specifically, as it appears the whole bottom half of the car from the molding down (at least) was painted white, in this case, with the red stenciled off somehow, and then the red applied. Which color would GM have seen as the "primary" color on this car? I see red on the floorboards, so I am guessing red was "primary" with white "secondary". I am geeking on this.
