Wixom, Michigan — Car-o-Liner is getting a moment in the spotlight as Power Nation TV’s “Music City Trucks” is set to feature the CTR9 Welder in the rebuild of a 1974 Ford Bronco.
“We are honoured that the team at Power Nation chose the CTR9 to help with the restoration of the Beach Cruiser Bronco,” said Tim Garner, market development manager for Car-O-Liner.
“We know that Brandon Burke and Marc Christ, the hosts of Music City Trucks, were really impressed on how easy the CTR9 was to use, and you can see from the episode that the CTR9 can perform a variety of welding jobs quickly and accurately.”
The welder will be put to the task of aiding in the restoration of what the hosts refer to as the “Beach Cruiser Bronco”, which will see the installation of a new chassis, supercharged crate engine, transfer case, axles, suspension, fuel system, sheet metal and an overhaul of the interior.
“The first-generation ’74 Bronco was completely rebuilt from the ground up so having a high- performing welder was a must for the project,” said Garner.
“The fact that the Beach Cruiser Bronco would be auctioned off with the proceeds going to such a wonderful organization as Warriors Heart made us want to be involved with the rebuild even more.”
The rebuilt Bronco will be auctioned off at a Mecum Auctions event in October with the proceeds benefiting Warriors Heart (www.warriorsheart.com) which provides private treatment for veterans who are seeking inpatient treatment for issues relating to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the psychological effects of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI).
