Doin' It For The Detail Guy

From:
DRIVE Magazine,  October 1998

The Detail Guy  

Award-winning customizer Steve Contreras is at it again... he's now got a '54 Chevy Sedan Delivery in his Elegant Auto Body shop in San Leandro, CA that he and his partner Carlos Lima will turn into the eye-catcher you see pictured here for The Detail Guy.

The vintage Stovebolt reached Steve's shop in mid-August and the project is now well underway, with thanks to sponsors NAST; Mothers' Polishes, Waxes and Cleaners; BFGoodrich Tires; Flowmaster Mufflers; Colorado Custom (wheels); US Radiator; Edelbrock; Sanderson Headers; Jet Hot Coatings; Addco (swaybars); engine-builder DDM (who put together a killer big-block Chev: that's good for about 425 hp!); Engine Lubrication Systems (pre-luber for the big-block); Interiors By Skip; Driveline Service of Concord. CA; Herb Martinez Pinstriping; West Coast Powdercoating Goodtimes Signs And Designs; Painless Wiring Hatwood (hood scoop); and Airtique Cool Stuf (air-conditioning), to name but a few. The Detail Guy's Kelly Hunter says this rig should be ready for the 50th Grand National Roadster Show coming up, the Cow Palace in 'San Francisco in February of '99.
