BASF to Showcase Custom Paint Solutions at Canadian International AutoShow

Classic Car Collection features 1957 Mercedes Benz Gullwing and 1955 Jaguar XK 140.

BASF Canada’s Automotive Coatings business will sponsor the Classic Car Collection at this year’s Canadian International AutoShow, Feb. 15 to 24 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). The collection will be on display on the 700 level of the MTCC.

The Classic Car Collection is a 40,000-square-foot display of classic and custom cars that have been built and restored in Canada. Among the cars on display this year are a 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing owned by BASF and restored by Legendary Motor Cars, Halton Hills, Ontario, and a 1955 Jaguar XK 140 FHC built by Deez Rods and Ridez, Belmont, Ontario. Both cars were built and restored by BASF customers using the company’s innovative Glasurit 90 Line waterborne paint brand.

“Glasurit paints employ state-of-the-art technology to blend speed, ease of use and color match durability,” said Harry Dhanjal, business manager, Refinish Solutions, BASF Canada. “Visitors to the display will be able to see firsthand examples of our premium product.”

The Gullwing was restyled by well-known designer Chip Foose in 2011, and debuted in the BASF booth at the SEMA Show that year. The car is painted with two tones of Chip Silver with a red pinstripe separating them. The restyling also includes custom bumpers, grille and side moldings.

“There were only 1400 Gullwing coupes produced between 1954-1957. Everywhere the car travels, it’s a show stopper,” said Dhanjal. “The Jaguar is called 1CRAZYCAT and has won top awards at car shows across the US and Canada. It’s definitely one of a kind.”
