Our favorite part about going to SEMA 2019 is the builds. People spend years dreaming up the perfect build to show off at SEMA and the quality and execution really show. Here's a round-up of 5 SEMA builds that we are looking forward to checking out!

 

Trulers Sponsored Griffis Designs "MOGWAI" Gremlin

Trulers is a very proud sponsor of the Escondido, CA-based Griffin Designs ultra-modified AMC Gremlin appropriately titled:  "MOGWAI"! Jacob Griffin will not only be showing off this vehicle, he is part of SEMA's "Young Guns" as well as a participant in this year's "Battle Of The Builders". Many modifications have been done to the vehicle and Trulers was a part of the process.

Driven Restorations 'Mom's T-Bird' 1959 Thunderbird

This might be one of the coolest '59 T-Birds we've ever seen. Located at the Summit Racing display trailer, this Coyote powered will be getting plenty of attention. The Colonial White car was purchased in 1961 for the current owner’s mom to use as a daily driver, thus earning the name “Mom’s T-Bird”. The Thunderbird features a Scott’s Hotrods and Customs full frame chassis with custom-built front and rear coil-over suspension and Wilwood disc brakes. Adapting the ’59 to the new chassis meant cutting out the floor, transmission tunnel, and subframe assemblies and building a new underbody structure.

WD-40 Partners with SEMA Cares to Reveal 1966 Ford Bronco

The Boosted Bronco will be on display at the WD-40 Brand booth (#62129 located outside by South Hall) from Nov. 5-9, 2019.

A brand-new fuel system and custom exhaust

Custom fabricated turbo piping

A new front and rear suspension with a 5-inch lift and new front and rear axles.

Custom brown leather seats, a rear bench and fully carpeted interior to give an old-school aesthetic

New front and rear door panels with side mirrors

A 6-point roll cage

All exterior trim, down to wheels and tires, is refinished and new

“It’s great to be able to modify an iconic vehicle like the Ford Bronco using WD-40 Brand products, particularly as the 2021 release approaches,” said Mike Spagnola, SEMA vice president of OEM and product development. “We’re honored to be able to participate in the build with WD-40 Company and support SEMA Cares.”
