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?
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.
