1957 Pontiac Safari
America on the Move Series

Issue Date: October 3, 2008
City:
Carlisle, PA

Produced for just three years, the Pontiac Safari made its debut in 1955, at the height of the prosperous and optimistic 1950s.  After 20 years of economic hardship, Americans were ready now to display their newfound financial successes.  Automobile manufacturers answered with luxury vehicles featuring extreme styling, dazzling chrome, and power under the hood. 

With its V-8 engine, two sporty forward-slanted doors, and Paul Gillan patented bumper and grille, the Pontiac Safari was no ordinary station wagon.  Appealing to a small segment of the population, the Safari traveled from exclusive neighborhoods to weekend hunting trips in grand style.  Sporting a new “Star Flight Body Design,” the 1957 Safari resembled a “rocket ship.”  Its long side spears were painted a contrasting color, and they extended into the Safari’s rear tail fins.  Inside the car was just as classy.  Power seats were upholstered in hand-buffed leather, carpeting covered the floors and cargo space, and the rear window wrapped around. 

In 2008, the U.S. Postal Service acknowledged the classics from the 1950s with a second set in the America on the Move series.
