Mississauga, Ontario -- November 4, 2013 -- PPG will introduce the Charley Hutton Ridler Color Collection at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nev. The collection is a spectrum of exclusive automotive colours created by Hutton, a three-time winner of the prestigious Ridler Award and one of the custom car worldâ€™s most respected and sought-after master painters.
The Charley Hutton Ridler Color Collection features colours from Huttonâ€™s Ridler Award winners as well as unique formulations used on some of his other standout rides. Developed with PPG at Charley Huttonâ€™s Color Studio in Nampa, Id., the collection covers 15 distinctive tones ranging from Madysen Gold and Checkered Red to Kalalau Lime and Indy Blue. Each is a special Hutton creation. The collection is intended to inspire other custom car builders and painters to unlock their imaginations and bring their designs to life.
â€œBeing able to share the incredible colours weâ€™ve dreamed up is very exciting,â€ said Hutton. â€œThese PPG colours give custom builders and painters the chance to let their ideas become realities. I hope street rod, muscle car and custom car enthusiasts take a look at what weâ€™ve put together. These colours are hot and some amazing things can be done with them.â€
The Ridler Award is presented annually at the Detroit Autorama and is regarded as one of the custom car worldâ€™s highest honours. Hutton won the Ridler in 2005, 2007 and most recently this year with â€œCheckered Past,â€ an awe-inspiring 1940 Ford coupe featuring a dazzling red PPG paint finish. Hutton has also received several Street Rod of the Year, Custom Rod of the Year and Americaâ€™s Most Beautiful Roadster awards along with many other top prizes. Hutton established his painting creds early in his career with appearances on the Discovery Channelâ€™s American Hot Rod, TLCâ€™s Overhaulinâ€™ and on Hot Rod TV. Hutton uses PPG Automotive Refinish products exclusively.
