Our Top 25 Laid-Out Trucks (and a Few More) From SEMA 2019: A Little Bit of Everything- But Mostly C10s
Every year we say the same thing: the sheer amount of Quality laid-out trucks at SEMA is so overwhelming that you sometimes barely give a glance to trucks that you would spend 10 minutes examining at your local cruise night. So, imagine taking over 1000 photos of the trucks at this year's SEMA and having to narrow them down to just 25. Well, we couldn't either, so we included a few more. And you can also check out trucktrend.com and see just about every truck that was there this year.
You already know that year after year, C10's dominate the show floor year after year. But this time around, it was the '60-'66 variety that took center stage. They were everywhere! From the high-tech versions from Fat Fender Garage and in the Chevy booth, to a matched set of Patina'd Light Green examples (well, they started out the same). Rounding out the pack were a super unque crew cab and one that was painted to resemble a Walker Evans racer from yesteryear.
Of course, The '67-'72 GM Trucks were well represented, and they're always a crowd favorite (I used to have one JUST LIKE this). From classic Red, to root beer brown, to light green patina (no, really!), and even A killer C50 crew cab flatbed- one of the most photographed vehicles at the show. Squarebody C10s were all over the place as well, but our two favorites happened to be one ton dualies, one from PPC Customs, and another insane camper from River City Rods- probably the other most photographed vehicle of the show.
We certainly did not forget about the late model trucks, and three of the four that we picked for our list came from Phat Phabz. Jake and the crew showed up with several vehicles, including the first laid out Navigator of the new body style and a salt and pepper set of standard cab short bed 2019 GM Trucks. Our other late model pick had to go to the laid-out, blacked-out Shelby edition F-150.
Killer '55-'59s included the insane one-off crew cab from Pure Metal Works as well as the third show stopper in a row from Premier Street Rods. And who could forget the two badass '47-'54s from Kindigit Designs Tre 5 Customs. Who would have thought there would be two laid-out '88-'98 ss 454 trucks? Well, we did! But who knew how incredibly well they would come out? We did, because Tre 5 and Provost/Flo were behind the builds!
Finally, there were a record high of F0rd F100s in attendance, and three killer examples made the list. And we rounded things out with a Badass Patina Dodge and the Gas Monkey Scout. While there are a lot less late model trucks than usual, you can't deny that this is an eclectic group. Look for a few of these trucks in these pages in the near future.
