Raybestos 1953 Chevrolet Pickup Delivered to Winner

The Raybestos 1953 Chevrolet pickup truck has been delivered to grand prize winner Charles Ruder, according to Kristin Grons, marketing manager for Brake Parts Inc LLC (BPI).

Ruder was named the winner at a booth reception at the BPI booth during the 2018 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.  

Family, friends, customers and members of the Minneapolis Fire Department joined Ruder at an open house lunch hosted by Brake & Equipment Warehouse in Minneapolis, Minn., to see “Big Red” and meet legendary car builder Jeff Schwartz. Andrew Miller, director of sales for BPI, Steve Sontich, customer experience specialist for BPI and Grons officially handed over the keys to the upgraded classic truck. 

“The weather was chilly, but the sun came out and shone on the truck as we presented the classic icon to its new owner,” says Grons. “We congratulate Charles again and thank him for being a loyal Raybestos customer. We know he’ll enjoy cruising around town, showcasing his new ride.”
