The Martin Senour Company unveiled a custom 1940s Ford pickup truck featuring its Tec/BASE Premium Solvent Refinish System at the 2013 SEMA Show. The vehicle was restored by Chaotic Customs, located in Mulvane, Kan.
The one-off paint color, coined “Bankrupt Blues,” was custom created by Chris Carlson of Chaotic Customs for the restoration and SEMA unveil. The vibrant blue paint consists of crushed glass and galaxy crystals, giving the truck a sleek, metallic finish.
"We were very excited to partner with Chaotic Customs during their restoration on the truck," said Brandon Devis, Martin Senour director of sales. "The attention to detail and Bankrupt Blues color is breathtakingly stunning. We are very proud of the one-off color we created for the truck; and of course, all of Chris’ team for the phenomenal restoration time, work and artistry they put into this project."
Chaotic Customs made more than 200 body modifications to the pick-up, customizing both the exterior and interior. After SEMA the truck will debut in the ISCA show circuit at the Houston Autorama and ending at the Lafayette Motorama.
"Our guys gave up their weekends and put in many late nights to get this project done in time for SEMA – my hat’s off to all of them – because the primer, the paint and the finish all came out great," said Carlson. "The end response and activity at the booth was tremendous. Needless to say, we’re looking forward to more future builds with Martin Senour."
