I got a great deal on this 1960 Catalina Safari. It has a 389 V8 engine and manual column shifted 3 speed transmission. It's is a rare 9 passenger/3 seat car that has no radio, no clock, no side view mirror, manual steering, manual brakes, power rear window, Safe-t-Trac rear axel (posi) rear stabilizer bar and "Flintstone" floorboards. I'm glad I could save this one from the crusher and hope to have it running soon... Anybody else have an old Pontiac Station Wagon?

BARN FIND! 1959 chevy rare?
Car has been off the road for about 15 years and I saved it from the
junkyard. my 59 chevy, it's a project car. only 20,760 two door station
wagons were made in 59 probably less then half are still on the road. small
block 1981 chevy engine- TH400 trans- 72 pontiac rear end. hope to be done
but next year "praying to finish". I known some of the stuff on the car
doesn't match so work with me here.
This car has been off the road since 1995 that's what the last owner said.
it was a rust bucket but after 10 years of slow body work around it. So
other than that I took it off his hands and hope to restore it.
the rare part; in 1959 GM made over 1.4 million chevrolets not including
pick ups, over 180,000 2-door impala, over 70,000 impala convertibles,
close to 25,000 el camino, and the lowers productive car made in 59 the
2-door station wagon/delivery wagons only 20,760 made. If all of the chevys
made in 59 were lined up today, you would have to see 100 before u see a
two door wagon

Big Burnouts: 1964 Pontiac Catalina Safari - /BIG MUSCLE
If you haven't figured it out by now, we love wagons on this show. To some
they're a misunderstood breed, but to those in the know, they're amazing.
Not only were the wagons of yesteryear known for their styling, but their
capacity to haul as much cargo as a modern day pickup. This 1964 Pontiac
Catalina Safari started off life as a Police Wagon, but was transformed by
its owner into the kick-ass, tire-shredding monster you see here. With a
Nelson Racing Engines 468 cid big-block under the hood, some updated
suspension bits and a killer look, this big green machine is
outside-the-box styling at its best.

1960 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible Blk
This car has the tri-power triple carb setup. Beautiful black paint, and
great interior. That color interior was very popular in Pontiac cars of
that vintage. It really is classy, in my opinion.
