The Sunbird Safari was added to the Sunbird lineup in 1978. As with Pontiac nomenclature, this car was a station wagon. What made it different than the standard Sunbird was the fact that it shared body panels with the previous year’s Astre wagon. It even retained the dashboard and instrumentation.
The two engine choices were a 2.5L I4 or a 3.8L V6. Since it was an apparent stop-gap measure, the wagon lasted only through 1979.
