Florida Auto Body Students Restoring ’69 Mustang for Scholarship Auction

WURTH USA Inc. and Sheridan Technical Center have partnered to restore a 1969 Ford Mustang in celebration of WURTH’s 40th Anniversary in the United States.

The restoration will be performed by the auto body repair students at Sheridan Technical Center in Hollywood, Fla. The refurbishment process and progress updates will be available for viewing at www.makeitwurth.com.

Upon completion of the restoration, the Mustang will be auctioned by WURTH USA and the proceeds will be donated back to Sheridan to support their Automotive Education scholarship programs.  
“We recognize that there is a critical shortage of quality entry level technicians in the collision repair industry,” said Mike Krause, WURTH president & CEO. “WURTH has been a partner with this trade in the United States for 40 years and understands the importance of encouraging young people to choose a career in collision repair. We’re excited for the opportunity to invest in the education and professional training of tomorrow’s technicians.”

Tom Moncilovich, assistant director at Sheridan Technical Center, added, “Our mission at Sheridan Tech is to prepare students for the South Florida workforce. Partnerships like the WURTH/Mustang project provide students with hands-on experience that they’re able to take to future employers. We are pleased to have formed this collaboration with WURTH and look forward to creating a really great-looking car.”
