MCHENRY, Ill. – The restoration of the Raybestos 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback is underway. To keep up with the progress, follow Raybestos on its special Facebook and Twitter social media platforms dedicated to the car build.

“Car enthusiasts everywhere will be interested in seeing the evolution of the Raybestos 1969 Mustang Fastback and following its journey throughout North America in the coming year,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts Inc. “Seeing the progress of this true American classic from its ‘before’ photos is already amazing. Just wait until it’s complete and hits the road.”

The dedicated social media platforms and website (www.RaybestosBuild.com) feature videos, photos, news and updates about the restoration and showcase world-renowned Schwartz Performance and the leading automotive products suppliers partnering with Raybestos to restore the iconic muscle car.

The Raybestos ’69 Mustang will be painted in classic colors and striping that are true to the time and will feature a new Ford Coyote engine that is very similar to the one found in the modern Boss 302. Schwartz Performance will install its famous “G-Machine” bolt-in chassis and an off-the-shelf performance disc brake upgrade package, using Raybestos components and Element3 brake pads with Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT).

Once the restoration is complete in early 2016, the one-of-a-kind Raybestos Mustang will travel throughout North America before making its way to the 2016 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, where it will be awarded to one lucky winner. Its travels will be chronicled so followers can stay up-to-date on its whereabouts.

“Because Raybestos and Mustang are the perfect match of history, leadership and innovation, we are taking this opportunity to share information on social media about what makes this Mustang and the year 1969 so special,” continued Grons. “Plus, our Mustang Monday and Fastback Friday posts are a quick way to see the car’s progress from your mobile device.”
