Paul, continued good luck with that sweet 57 Pontiac wagon of yours.

Worked on installing new door weatherstripping and sound deadener in the right side doors this winter.

Hope to drive soon to see if it makes a difference, should be less wind/traffic noise.

Take care

The wagons were called SAFARI and the Nomad looking ones were called Custom SAFARI.

Here are a couple of pics I found.

That's a beautiful wagon you have Paul! What does it have for a power train?

I've downloaded the complete 1957 Canadian Pontiac brochure, attached are all three wagon photos from it (that's the sum total of wagon pics from the brochure).

In reading this thread, I only today noticed the fact that the "Pontiac" emblem on the front fender is further back on the Pathfinder, and that the Pathfinder has no "forward" part of the body side molding beyond the back door (on the four door models, or beyond the quarter panels two door models). Interesting!

My '57 is a basic four door sedan Pathfinder model w/261 & 3 speed manual. Only option is heavy duty suspension (which may explain why my leaf springs aren't sagged?). It isn't even two tone!

TFC

I think this is the same green wagon I saw at the Fleetwood country cruise in about 10 or 12 years ago in London, Ontario. It looked very good back then.
