Cardone Industries and Swag Custom Rides have announced the tour schedule for their fully restored and reimagined ’66 Chevy Chevelle.
The classic hot rod, known as Mystique, is the first “eco-friendly muscle car” that runs on either E-85 ethanol or gas with the flip of a switch.
The two organizations will tour the Chevelle across the nation to showcase the high-tech features of the car, sleek interior and exterior design, as well as give auto enthusiasts the chance to enter Cardone’s Hot Rod Giveaway sweepstakes.
“Cardone gave us the freedom to design Mystique with some guidelines and at the top of the list was innovation. So, we looked at taking a vehicle from a different era, modernizing it and pushing into it as much technology as possible,” says John Muratori, founder and CEO of Swag Custom Rides. “I can’t wait to give the keys to someone, so they can drive off with this car.”
To help find the car’s new owner, Cardone has unveiled a microsite to provide a one-stop destination to enter the sweepstakes, learn about the specs of the dual-fuel hot rod, and see a full listing of where and when the ’66 Chevelle will tour. The microsite is located at: www.cardonehotrodgiveaway.com.
Several upcoming car shows on Mystique’s road tour include:
April 27-29 Goodguys 4th North Carolina Nationals; Raleigh, N.C.
May 11-12 Goodguys 13th Nashville Nationals; Nashville
May 26-27 Swag Invitational; New Britain, Conn.
Aug. 7-12 Hot August Nights; Reno, Nev.
Caredone and Swag Custom Rides will draw the grand prize winner around June 12, 2018, and reveal the winner through the sweepstakes microsite and CARDONE.com.
The grand prize includes the Chevelle, $15,000 and travel accommodations to attend the 2018 Hot August Nights car show in Reno, Nev., where Cardone and Swag Rides will officially present the car to the winner.
