1957 PONTIAC STAR CHIEF



1957 PONTIAC STARCHIEF

Client came to SLC after buying his dream car that he once owned as a young adult.  Client wanted a rotisserie restoration on his Pontiac which was in pretty bad shape when it arrived.  We performed extensive rust repair on the body and we replaced the doors with a set of 1957 Chevy doors which were the same production.  The client wanted the paint to be the original baby blue color to match his first Starchief; we ended up painting it a Opel color which was in the same color family but it gave it an updated look. We ended up putting a 455 CI Pontiac motor, turbo 400 trany and a nice set of rims on it to finish it off.  All interior was custom made to client's wishes.  The client and his wife plan on driving the car out West to California to revisit memory lane as they did when they were younger.
