CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MyClassicGarage.com and RK Motors Charlotte, teamed up to spearhead the project to restore and customize a classic Ford Bronco in honor of fallen hero, US Navy SEAL Chief Adam Brown. US Navy Seal Chief Adam Brown was killed in action during a 2010 operation in Afghanistan. Chief Brown died placing himself in the line of fire to protect his unit. These actions saved the lives of several of his men. The 12-year US Navy veteran was awarded the Silver Star Medal for his heroism. He is survived by his wife and two children.
The 1991 Bronco was recently completed at the RK Motors Performance Center, located in Mooresville, NC, and unveiled to Chief Brown's family. MyClassicGarage has documented Adam Brown's story along side the progress of the vehicle restoration on their social platform. The dedicated social page, http://myclassicgarage.com/social/profile/operation-fearless, has received thousands of views and comments.
The restored '91 Ford Bronco was on display at the Charlotte International Autoshow and created quite a buzz amongst show-goers. As well, it brought awareness to Adam's story and the book "FEARLESS" by Eric Blehm, which chronicled Adam's life and heroism. "The vehicle is absolutely one-of-a-kind and is a fantastic tribute to Adam, his dedication to his country, and to servicemen and women around the world," said Tanner Fritz, VP Product and Operations at MyClassicGarage.
