Peterbilt 75th anniversary tourDENTON, TX – Peterbilt’s eight month 75th anniversary tour wrapped up recently, after 100 events that attracted nearly 20,000 attendees.

“Our customers and brand enthusiasts wholly embraced our anniversary celebration and we thank them for their yearlong support,” said Darrin Siver, Peterbilt general manager and Paccar vice president. “The anniversary tour provided a great opportunity to reflect on Peterbilt’s storied history and the many future milestones we will together achieve.”

The centerpiece of the tour was a custom-built, double-expandable, 53-foot trailer with Peterbilt memorabilia, interactive displays, a history wall display, a Paccar MX-13 engine and cab and sleeper cutaways of Peterbilt’s new Models 579 and 567.

The trailer was transported by the Model 579 Anniversary Edition.

According to the company, it was the largest collection of Peterbilt trucks ever assembled and likely the largest collection of a single brand of vehicle ever gathered in place. Nearly every model of Peterbilt was represented, including the first-ever chassis produced.
