1950s Cars, Part III

1956 Pontiac station wagons

FOUR OF AMERICA’S BEST BUYS…for Beauty, Bigness and Blazing Go!

1956 Pontiac 860 4-Door


860 4-DOOR, 3-seat, with room for 9 passengers…both rear seats fold for extra carrying space

Why not have fun while you’re being practical?

Here are four wonderful ways to do just that! Each one is sleek and exciting as a sports car, handy as a pickup truck…and extra big in the bargain with a road-leveling 122″ wheelbase!

But the really breath-taking difference in Pontiac’s fabulous family wagons is the way the GO!

There’s nothing like it…because they’re powered by the greatest performance team ever offered in a station wagon…the mighty 227-horsepower Strato-Streak V-8 and revolutionary Strato-Flight Hydra-Matic Drive*!

That big, extra power means handling ease and liveliness you’ve never known in a big car before.

And wait ’til you hear the prices. They’re as practical and exciting…as the cars themselves…starting right down with the lowest!

See your Pontiac dealer soon – see why these fabulous ’56 Pontiacs are rated America’s best station wagon buys!

* An extra-cost option.
