Why We Like It

For the final 1975-‘76 run of Pontiac’s “big” models, the Grand Ville Station Wagons continued in 6 and 9-passenger forms and became part of the upscale Bonneville series. Styling was slightly updated along numerous fine details and Pontiac’s new-for-1975 Radial Tuned Suspension and HEI ignition system made these powerful and confident Pontiacs better to drive than ever before.


This original Roman Red over red vinyl 1975 Pontiac Grand Safari is a wonderful, 455ci/Turbo 400 automatic car that was ordered new with an abundance of, and quite possibly, every factory-available option. Documentation goes back to new, including the original windows sticker, sale invoice, books, manuals, two build sheets, factory warranty booklets, and key knockouts. Upgrades include a great-sounding Flowmaster exhaust and new Coys 18 and 20-inch wheels. The Roman Red paint finish looks great, as does the original red vinyl interior and engine bay. In short, this highly equipped and great looking Grand Safari Wagon is in amazing and very well-kept condition belying its 90k seller-stated miles.wagon-master-90k-mile-1975-pontiac-grand-safari-station-wagon77719677-770-0@2X


Valuation Verdict

These big station wagons are “grand” in more than their nameplate or considerable size suggests. They were prized when new for very good handling, their size, and with 455 power, quite fast, but that story will have to wait for another time. Our subject car feels like a high-quality example with plenty of life left in it for continued enjoyment on the open road. Not terribly common when new, only a couple have come to market on sites like Bring a Trailer over the past few years – a 1973 model that sold for $36k in mid-2019, and a 1976 example that passed unsold with a $15,250 high bid in December 2020. Roughly splitting the difference and due to its high spec and originality, we’ll call it fair market, although it’s another example that’ll likely feel very well bought in the not-too-distant future.
