BASF’s Glasurit Paint Featured on 2015 Ridler Award Winner

The Ridler Award-winning 1965 Chevy Impala Impostor created by Chip Foose, featuring BASF Glasurit 90 Line paint.

BASF Automotive Refinish announced that the winner of the 2015 “Ridler Award” is the 1965 Chevy Impala Impostor created by Chip Foose, featuring BASF Glasurit 90 Line paint.

The Ridler, one of the custom car industry’s most prestigious awards, was presented to car owners Don and Elma Voth of Canada at the recent Detroit Autorama. The car’s color, called Impostor Pearl Dark and Impostor Pearl Light, was specifically customized by Chip Foose.

“Chip has been a long-time ambassador for BASF’s Glasurit 90 Line paint system,” said Shefali Cromer, Glasurit market segment manager, BASF Coatings Solutions, North America. “Glasurit provides a world-class finish and outstanding quality every time. It’s that kind of reliability that attracts Chip – and many other custom car builders – to use Glasurit.”

Foose is known for his TV show Overhaulin’, as well as his many award-winning car designs.

“At Foose Design, we’re lucky enough to work on projects that have emotional value for our customers, and that means a lot to us,” said Foose. “BASF offers intelligent solutions based on innovative products and tailor-made services that help convey these emotions and also take my projects to the Ridler Awards, magazine covers and television.”

The Ridler Award was established in 1964 to honor the memory of Don Ridler, who started promoting Detroit’s Autorama in the 1950s, and is given to the best new creations. Cars must make their public debut at the show in order to be eligible.
