the back wing window in the wagons are slightly different than the front wing windows...there is a "truck" latch to open and close them....and there isnt the "sliding lock" like cars have....also ( I think ) the rear qtr windows in the wagons are the same as 2dr wagons because if the room the rear wing winows take up.....8 and 9 passenger Pontiac wagons are very difficult to find now-a-days

Eight and Nine passengers? How many seats do they have? I'm sure we had 4 in the rear seat, maybe one up front with Mom and Dad, and the smallest 2 or 3 had to take turns in the very back.

Absolutely correct, The curved glass is the same as the 2dr wagon. I have a complete setup I took out of a rusty 57 Pontiac wagon I plan on putting in my 55 Chevy wagon.

'55-'57 Pontiacs share a lot of parts with '55-'57 Chevys. They're first cousins at least, I read somewhere that Pontiacs were 3 inches longer in front of the windshield post (fenders forward). Years ago (around 1990) I pulled a nice 2-dr front seat out of a rusted Star Chief sedan and Nomad trim/stainless off of a '55 Safari both in the same junkyard.
