THE ORIGINAL SINTOR TRUCK

This original Sintor truck is the SEMA truck that’s not a “SEMA Truck,” it actually got used like a truck should, and has since gone on to create a business. This big custom diesel Ford F350 started off life as a show truck for Sinister Diesel and has gone on to spawn an entire custom truck building company, Sintor Trucks.

This truck debuted all the way back at The SEMA Show 2018. It has been evolving ever since and made another big appearance at The SEMA Show 2019. It was in the Turn 14 booth this time and continued to turn heads. We got a chance to photograph this monster after the show late last year and can assure you that it’s just as impressive up close and personal as it looks in the pictures.

THE SINTOR VISION

This truck came to be because Sinister Diesel couldn’t find a big unique promo vehicle that met their high standards of fit and finish. This led them to build their own unique truck to stand out from the crowd and showcase the quality of their products.

This original Sintor build was designed to follow Ford’s design lines but make them even more big and bold. The idea was for the truck to look and feel like it just rolled off the production line at Ford, but like nothing anyone had seen before. This meant that the truck would have to be built to the highest design and quality standards possible. It also meant that it didn’t just have to have unique clean looks, but also had to work well on the road, towing, and off-road as well. All those big ideas came together to create this truly special truck that continues to stand out from the crowd.

Business partners, Brian George and Mike Mitchell plus their team of builders have built many custom SEMA trucks over the years for Sinister Diesel and others. The Sintor was a whole other level of project, however, which required an even deeper talent pool. George put together a team of the best suspension, metal fabrication, and paint guys in the business to make this dream a reality. Thousands of hours of design and engineering time went into this original Sintor truck. George and Mitchell wanted to particularly thank WFO, Ben York, Josh Carson and Mario Novelli as well as all their employees for helping get this project off the ground and ready for The SEMA Show.
