BASF Coatings Business Sponsors Classic Car Collection at Canadian International Autoshow

BASF Canada’s Automotive Coatings business will sponsor the Classic Car Collection at this year’s Canadian International Autoshow, Feb. 15 to 24, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC). The collection will be on display on the 700 level of the MTCC.

The 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing owned by BASF that will be on display at the Canadian International Autoshow, Feb. 15 to 24, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The Classic Car Collection is a 40,000 square foot display of classic and custom cars that have been built and restored in Canada. Among the cars on display this year are a 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing owned by BASF and restored by Legendary Motor Cars, Halton Hills, Ontario, and a 1955 Jaguar XK 140 FHC built by Deez Rods and Ridez, Belmont, Ontario. Both cars were built and restored by BASF customers using the company’s innovative Glasurit® 90 Line waterborne paint brand.

“Glasurit paints employ state-of-the-art technology to blend speed, ease of use and colour match durability,” said Harry Dhanjal, Business Manager, Refinish solutions, BASF Canada. “Visitors to the display will be able to see firsthand examples of our premium product.”

The Gullwing was restyled by well-known designer Chip Foose in 2011, and debuted in the BASF booth at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show that year. The car is painted with two tones of Chip Silver with a red pinstripe separating them. The restyling also includes custom bumpers, grill and side moldings.

“There were only 1400 Gullwing coupes produced between 1954-1957. Everywhere the car travels, it’s a show stopper,” said Dhanjal. “The Jaguar is called 1CRAZYCAT and has won top awards at car shows across the US and Canada. It is definitely a one of a kind.”

The Canadian International Auto show is Canada’s largest auto show. To mark its 40th anniversary, this year’s show will celebrate the past, present and future of the automotive industry, featuring 600,000 square feet of displays and exhibits.
