Restored Raybestos 1953 Chevy Pickup Revealed

Raybestos customers can see the complete restoration process from start to finish by visiting raybestosbuild.com.

The Raybestos 1953 Chevrolet pickup build project is complete. The restored classic will now hit the road for a North American tour before one lucky automotive professional wins it for their very own.

“We have restored a lot of very cool vehicles, including the iconic 1969 Raybestos Mustang, but I think this 1953 Chevy pickup might be our best build yet,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts Inc. “The team at Schwartz Performance led by the master, Jeff Schwartz, really outdid themselves this time and a big thank you to all of our build partners for their participation in another incredible build. I know the lucky winner will enjoy showing off this classic truck as they cruise their neighborhood.”

As part of the restoration project, Schwartz Performance installed its famous bolt-in “G-Machine” chassis system, as well as an off-the-shelf performance disc brake upgrade package, using Raybestos components and Raybestos Truck & Medium Duty specialty disc brake pads. In addition, more than 20 premier suppliers partnered with Raybestos to help restore and modify the pickup.

Raybestos customers can see the complete restoration process from start to finish by visiting raybestosbuild.com. The website features videos, pictures and information showcasing the start of the build and every step along the road to completion. The videos, hosted by Schwartz, describe specific steps in the build process and photos illustrate the detailed craftsmanship that went into this one-of-a-kind truck.

After touring North America, the Raybestos 1953 Chevy pickup will head to Las Vegas in October, where it will be awarded to one lucky automotive professional during AAPEX.
