1973 Pontiac Catalina Safari 3-Seat Wagon
Here at MissChiTown we are very proud to be the marketing arm of so many fabulous car collectors that want to advertise on eBay.As car collectors ourselves we often get into the cars that we are marketing in terms of excitement and passion.It doesn’t happen often but sometimes some cars just check off all the boxes on the ‘want’ list!Some of those boxes can be important to collectors who are looking to purchase a car, such as:
Getting the car from the original owner
Large, original, 1973 V8 motor to propel the car into fast acceleration capable of cruising at 85-95 mph all day long (we are not recommending that you go over the speed limit).
Matching Numbers Car
Original car with one re-paint to original color.
Original window sticker, original order form and a lot more documentation that the original owner has kept all of these years.
Having a car that it is not only collectible but very practical to drive on today’s roads, a car that can accommodate a large family (we know some collectors who get limousines for that purpose but they can feel a little silly driving a limousine).
This is an important point, getting a car from the 70s that has FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING
Having the original miles documented by original owner
Unusual accessories like the special wheel option.
Factory tinted glass
Rear window defroster from the factory
Factory AM/FM Radio
Ability to carry a family of nine in luxury.
Factory luggage carrier on the roof for luggage.
Deluxe gauges from that time period
The car is still in the factory color Burma Brown with only one re-paint.
We mention all of the above because any car that would have half of these positive items would make the car extra hot in the collector market.We have to say that at MissChiTown that only a very few times in our history of marketing collector cars have we had any one car that could check off all the boxes.
Yes this car features many of the important features that collectors desire.If that does not make it one of the hottest collector station wagons around we don’t know what does.This car in our opinion has multiple opportunities – it can be displayed at a museum with all its virtues listed on a big signboard or the virtues can be made use of by a collector who wants to use the car as a collector tour car with his family.We have yet to see a station wagon any time so well equipped with an original owner, original order sheet, original window sticker and all of the other items above.The following is a more inclusive description that also includes the owners description.
This very clean and original (except for one repaint in original Burma Brown) offered by the original owner is not something you will find often.This car has the third row seating and cool disappearing power tailgate.When not hauling people around the 2 rear seats can be folded down giving a ton of storage space.
You will love the powerof the 400 cubic inch V8 with four barrel carburetor in the engine!Backing the motor is a 400 Turbo Hydramatic transmission with no issues.The car was fitted with A/C from the factory as well as power steering and power brakes.
The fit and finish is in beautiful condition making it a contender at any car show you want to take it to.The body is in beautiful condition and is very striking in the Burma Brown paint complimented by the original Beige Morrokide interior.Look closely at the chrome and stainless we think you will appreciate how it shines.The soft ray tinted glass windows are all in good condition.The factory luggage rack is still mounted in place on the roof.The factory Rally II wheels really are quite striking and give this car an edgy look.
This car may have started out as a family vehicle but now collectors look upon these cars as great collectibles just for the “Cool Factor”.
The car is located on the east coast and I would be happy to calculate mileage for you just call 847-774-4857.
