CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--RK Motors Charlotte, one of the nation’s premier restorers and builders of high-performance automobiles, spearheaded a project to restore and customize a Ford Bronco in honor of fallen hero, US Navy SEAL Adam Brown. The truck was part of a “Give Forward” campaign which raised $65,319,660, while RKMC and other sponsors including 5-Hour Energy, RoushYates, BDS Suspension and ESAB provided parts, services and funds for “Project Fearless.” The Bronco was recently unveiled to Chief Brown’s family.
“When I first heard of Chief Brown’s incredible bravery, I was moved by his sacrifice”
“When I first heard of Chief Brown’s incredible bravery, I was moved by his sacrifice,” said Rob Kauffman, Owner and Chairman, RK Motors, LLC. “While his service as a Navy SEAL was admirable, his battle to overcome personal demons to reach the U.S. military’s top tier was inspiring. We felt compelled to help rebuild Chief Brown’s Bronco as a tribute to him and his family. It was just the right thing to do.”
Navy SEAL Chief Adam Brown was killed in action in Afghanistan. Chronicled in Eric Blehm’s book “FEARLESS,” Brown died protecting his unit. His actions saved the lives of several of his men. He is survived by his wife and two children.
“We understand that Mrs. Brown bought the truck for Adam and he loved driving it,” said Joseph Carroll, RKMC CEO and president. “But overseas tours made maintenance difficult. With his friends and other sponsors, we returned the Bronco to duty for his family as a symbol of Chief Brown’s life.”
Now upgraded throughout, the “Project Fearless” Bronco was transformed into virtually a new vehicle with a 5.0L “Coyote” Aluminator engine that churns out over 400 HP.
