DESCRIPTION

Draxler's Service Inc. is helping a family estate sell a 1956 Pontiac Safari Wagon. The odometer reads 23901 but the title states exempt so can not confirm mileage. It comes with many spare small parts. The exterior shows like it is all original patina. The interior does need some work. It has a 316.6 V8 engine with an automatic transmission, Power steering, Power Brakes, AM radio with a FM converter, and it is an A/C car but the A/C is not complete. There has been a lot of work done in the past. The engine and transmission have been rebuilt about 5 years ago, the rear pinion seal has been replaced, all new updated wiring from the dash forward, brakes have been all redone in the last 5 years, a new heater cores were installed along with new carpet and the lights have been all upgraded to LEDs. The floor was completely resealed while the carpet was out. The vehicle has all new hoses and the radiator has been recently re-cored. The starter was replaced and the generator has been rebuilt. When the engine was rebuilt the exhaust seats were changed to harden seats and the engine is 30 over with a 20/20 crankshaft, new valves and an updated camshaft. The tires have 8/32 inch tread. The speedometer was rebuilt, the ignition system has been upgraded to electronic (Petronix), the wipers were upgraded to electric, the carburetor has been recently rebuilt, and the gas tank has been flushed, an electrical fuel pump has been installed, New shocks all the way around, an aftermarket transmission cooler, new exhaust with Smithy's mufflers, and aftermarket cruise control. It comes with a lot of shop manuals and the original purchase contract. This vehicle was set up to drive. The rear hatch hinges could use some work and the hatch is very difficult to close. The steering box leaks more when on jack stands. The family is asking $43,995.00 OBO. We are told only 4,042 of these cars were produced in a three span from 1955-1957. This car was purchased by the family in 1983 out of Oklahoma. This is a great driver that made the trip from central Wisconsin to Minneapolis the past several years for back to the fifties. Along with several other long trips including Omro, and Fon Du Lac. We have a third party appraisal stating the car is worth $42,000.00. A lot of paperwork and receipts come with the car. There is also the possibility of some memorabilia to be included. Please call 715-384-8507 and ask for Travis or 715-305-5654 after 5PM or on Weekends.
