1957 PON­TIAC STAR CHIEF | LEONARD & GRACE LOVALVO | SALIDA, CA

Street Rodder - - Tech -

Leonard’s first car was a ’57 Star Chief; he pro­posed to Grace in it. He bought this one 34 years ago. BRE Rods & Clas­sics com­pleted the re­cent re­build, which in­cludes an

Art Mor­ri­son frame. It has Bil­let Spe­cial­ties Day­tona wheels and Miche­lin tires in the wheel­wells. The LS3 en­gine is dressed up with a cus­tom air in­take and valve cov­ers and is tied to a 4L80 trans­mis­sion. The in­te­rior is fully mod­ern­ized with mod­i­fied BMW seats cov­ered in multi-tex­tured black up­hol­stery. Clas­sic In­stru­ments gauges and Vin­tage Air vents fill the dash. A Bil­let Spe­cial­ties D-Shaped steer­ing wheel and Alpine and Pioneer au­dio com­po­nents add to the in­te­rior’s ap­peal.
