It takes a lot of time and work to customize a car, get it running smoothly and make it road ready. However, the competing crews on SPEED TV’s Car Warriors don’t have time on their side. They actually only have 48 hours to build cars from the ground up. Sound difficult? You bet, but thanks to the involvement of Classic Industries, the crews won’t be doing their builds without the highest quality restoration parts this season.
“When timetables are short, it’s crucial to have restoration parts that fit precisely. That’s why Classic Industries is an obvious choice for Car Warriors,” said Jeff Leonard, CEO.
“Being chosen by Car Warriors is a perfect opportunity for us to showcase Classic Industries products being used in an environment where deadlines dominate and details matter.” SPEED TV’s Car Warriors challenges two competing teams to build unique custom cars from start to finish out of two identical vehicles in an extremely limited time frame.
Not only are the cars expected to look good, they’re also required to run and be of the utmost quality. Instead of 72 hours like teams were given last year for their builds, the time limit has been shortened to just 48 hours this year. However, two lead techs will be helping the teams navigate their way through the shop and their builds this season.
Since Car Warriors is focusing on muscle cars and classic trucks this season, the parts supplied by Classic Industries will go a long way. If you watched the first episode that aired on February 24th, you may have seen the plethora of parts supplied by Classic for the pair of ‘71 Camaros.
For this episode, Classic Industries provided seat upholstery, headliners, gauges, aluminum gauge panels, consoles, steering wheels, door handles, dash pads, vents, dome lights, review mirrors, seatbelts, and sun visors.
They also provided interior panels and emblems, door jam vents, door sills, aluminum pedal covers, arm rests and a truck refinishing paint kit. And that was just for the interior.
Classic also provided countless components for the exteriors of the Camaros, like reproduction window decals, front and rear spoilers, bumpers, hood scoops, headlamps and tail lamps, three different styles of hoods, trim, and body emblems.
Classic Industries will be providing even more components for builds throughout the season, including those of twin ‘70 C10 pickups that will air on April 18th and twin ‘72 Novas that will air on May 2nd.
Restoration parts from Classic will again include many interior components, like trim, upholstery, headliners, interior emblems, knobs and seatbelts, as well as billet components for the trucks, like mirrors and dash inserts. They’ll also include bumpers, headlamps and tail lamps, grilles, hoods and paints for the exteriors.
For the upcoming Chevys, Classic Industries will also be providing fuel tanks and engine mounts among other things.
They will even be making their 2-inch drop spindles available for the C10 builds. We’re excited to see Classic Industries pairing with SPEED TV’s Car Warriors to give the competing crews quality restoration components this season. With an even shorter time limit and a garage full of muscle all the time, we have a feeling that the builds will turn out ten times better with Classic backing them up.
Be sure to tune into SPEED TV every Wednesday for Car Warriors to see all the parts from Classic Industries put to good use.
