Famed Street Rod Painter Charley Hutton Teams with PPG

Renowned street rod painter Charley Hutton has teamed with PPG
Automotive Refinish for a number of projects including custom painting
of the Kurt Busch Foundation Dodge Challenger.

“I’m very
excited about partnering with PPG,” said Hutton. “I started painting
cars with PPG, and it’s great to be working with them again. I’ve
always liked their products, support and service. While building our
new facility, we have worked hard to be environmentally friendly. PPG’s
new waterborne paint lines – Aquabase Plus and Envirobase High
Performance – fit perfectly into our plan.”

Well-known in the
custom car world for his work on high-end street rods, Hutton has won
national recognition, including two Ridler Awards, several Street Rod
of the Year and Custom Rod of the Year awards, as well as an America’s
Most Beautiful Roadster Award. He made his mark in television on the
Discovery Channel’s “American Hot Rod” working with legendary custom
car builder, the late Boyd Coddington. Hutton has also been featured on
The Learning Channel’s “Overhaulin’” and on Hot Rod TV.
He works out of a newly expanded facility, Charley Hutton’s Color Studio in Nampa, Idaho.

“We’re
thrilled about our partnership with Charley,” said Jeff Griffin, PPG
manager, collision segment N.A. “With his sharp eye, steady hand,
technical expertise and incredible creativity, he’s one of the most
talented painters in the country. He’s been an advocate of PPG products
for years and we’re looking forward to working together for a long time
to come.”
 
Hutton started painting cars at 13, working in a body
shop owned by a family friend, and painted his first custom car when he
was 15. He established his own business in 1993 at the age of 20.
Hutton will be using PPG products exclusively in his shop.
