SEMA Pre-Show: OTC to Showcase Vintage Tool Truck, Latest Tools at SEMA

OTC will unveil a renovated, OTC-branded 1930s Ford delivery truck and its latest tools and equipment at its SEMA booth (#10171) to recognize the old and the new during its 90th anniversary.

The fully restored, 1930s Ford delivery truck pays homage to OTC’s original tool sales trucks in celebration of the OTC’s 90th anniversary. As part of its anniversary, OTC partnered with noted fabricator and custom vehicle builder Bryan Fuller, whose shop Fuller Moto restored the OTC Tool Truck to be displayed.

OTC will also display its newest professional diagnostics tool, the OTC Evolve; the new 6637-ST Strut Tamer II Extreme with stand, a new solution helping technicians quickly and safely replace strut springs; and other new Bosch and OTC tools.

Robinair will also display line of mobile A/C recovery machines at the OTC booth.

Additionally, technicians who visit the booth can compete to win an OTC Encore diagnostics kit, forged steel bottle opener, or other OTC tools in a diagnostic challenge. During the challenge, techs will use either the Encore, 3211, 3210 or the newly announced Evolve diagnostic tool on vehicle simulators based on real-world issues. In between competitions, contestants also have the opportunity to play vintage video games.
