The mustang will be on display Nov. 1-3 at the Brake Parts Inc booth (#3638) during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) show where it will be awarded to one lucky auto care industry parts or service professional.

“We chose to restore a ‘69 Mustang because of its history, leadership and innovation – the perfect match with our flagship Raybestos brand,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts Inc. “We’re not the only ones who think this outrageous muscle car is something very special. It’s received its share of accolades since completion, most recently named the ‘Ford Muscle Pick’ at the GoodGuys West Coast Nationals.”

Raybestos teamed up with Schwartz Performance to rebuild the Raybestos 1969 Mustang. Painted in classic colors and striping true to the time, the custom muscle car features a new Ford Coyote engine similar to the one found on the modern Boss 302. Schwartz Performance installed its “G-Machine” bolt-in chassis as well as an off-the-shelf performance disc brake upgrade package, using Raybestos components and Element3 brake pads with Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT).

Raybestos also partnered with leading suppliers to make sure that each aspect of the classic car was restored to all its glory, including: American Autowire, BeCool, Dakota Digital, Flaming River, Ford Performance, Forgeline, Gardner-Westcott, Hifonics, Hushmat, Johns Industries, Mechanix Wear, Mothers, National Parts Depot, Optima Batteries, PPG Automotive Refinish/The Color Shoppe, Red Line Synthetic Oil, Ridetech Ring Brothers,, Silver Sport Transmissions, SpinTech, Tanks Inc., TechAFX, TMI Products and Vintage Air.

“For a car this extraordinary, we made sure to team up with the finest supplier partners around and we documented the entire process at,” continued Grons. “We know the auto care professional who wins this Raybestos Mustang Sweepstakes will appreciate the quality parts and expert craftsmanship that went into this exceptional vehicle.”
