1955 Chevy Bel Air- Great 8 Winner

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.

We had a chance to wander thorough the 2020 Autorama at Cobo Hall in Detroit.  It was full of some amazing automotive engineering.  One of the best cars there was built by Chris Walker and his team at Premier Motorworkz in Louisville, KY.   They built this exceptional 1968 Camaro called Dementor.

The engine is a 6.2 liter LSA paired with a 6-speed automatic.  The exhaust is a piped through a Varex Variable Exhaust system.  The interior is spectacular and was done by Sewn Tight Custom Interiors.  The car is a slick silver with flake and a ton of pearl, all from House of Kolor.  It absolutely pops in the sunlight.

Chris wired the car with our 20-Circuit Kit, inMOTION, inRESERVE, inTOUCH NET and inVIRONMENT.

Chris mounted the front POWERCELL next to the driver’s core support under the hood.  This makes all of the wires going to the front of the car short and simple to run.  The rear POWERCELL and inMOTION are in the trunk.  The MASTERCELL is behind the dash, just forward of the head unit.

They are controlling the car primarily from the customer’s phone using inTOUCH NET.  They also have a head unit in the dash that gives them complete control of the car from the touch screen.  This includes controlling all of the functions of their Vintage Air Gen-IV with our inVIRONMENT module.

We worked with Chris and his team to customize the code on his Infinitybox system.  We’re controlling the headlight covers from inMOTION when he turns the headlights on and off.   We also customized his system to control the motors for this exhaust system so he has manual control.  We also tuned the way his interior and accent lights work.

Recently, ScottyDTV did an interview with Chris covering the car at the 2020 Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, KY.  You can see the video of the car below.

Congratulations to Chris and his team for building an exceptional car.  We’re proud to be a part of this car.  You can learn more about Premier Motorworkz by visiting their website at www.premiermotorworkz.com or calling them at (502) 749-2324.
