Our Infinitybox team is thrilled to be a part of Bob Matranga’s 1955 Chevy Bel Air. This car was awarded as one of the Great 8 winners for the 2020 Ridler Award at the Detroit Autorama. The car is appropriately named Brute Force.
Bob and his team built a stunning 1955 Chevy Bel Air. You could spend hours looking at all of the details in this car. From the engine, to the chassis, to the one-off lights, to the leather treatment to the emblems, this is an impressive car.
One of our favorite details are the three dimensional marker and tail lights. Chris Brown conceived and built these lights. The effect of the floating bars is just too cool.
You can see an interview with Bob going through the details of the car here. Thanks to EClassic Autos for the video content.
Bob’s team started with our Infinitybox 20-Circuit Kit to wire the car. From there, they added inMOTION to control their power locks and power windows. They added inLINK for remote control from a key fob. inRESERVE for active battery management. inTOUCH NET so they can control the car from a tablet or smart phone. And inVIRONMENT so they can control their Vintage Air Gen-IV from their touch screen. They have the cells strategically located in the car to optimize the wiring harness and get them the most features.
We had a chance to talk to Chris Brown of Brown Auto Design at the Autorama. Chris is the mastermind behind the design of this car. He mentioned to us that he had very limited room to run wires in the car. Using the Infinitybox system made wiring the car much easier for him and his team.
We are very proud to be a part of this project. Congratulations to Bob and the entire team at Matranga Hot Rods for making it to the Great 8.
