Concept Transporters has never been known for building the average, the minimum, or the basic. When Bruce Canepa founded the company, he envisioned bringing his design skills and intense attention to detail to the trucking industry. After 35 years of working with some of the biggest manufacturers with fleets and private clients asking for projects that no one else would touch, Concept Transporters has become synonymous with quality, ingenuity, and utility. When a private client came to Concept Transporters looking for a 4-car transporter that integrated some retro design from the 90s with some European influence, Bruce knew exactly what to start with. Beginning with a Peterbilt 372 truck, it was transformed into one of the most ad-vanced retro vehicle transporters parading around the US.

The foundation started with a Peterbilt 372 cab over, which then had its chassis stretched to accommodate for the future transporter body. All air lines and electrical components were ex-tended as necessary. The transporter body was built from formed aluminum panels, incorpo-rating a "rivetless" design to maintain a sleek exterior design. The interior of the transporter was designed to be as flexible as possible by incorporating a number of special design fea-tures. This includes adjustable decking for different sized vehicles, a 6,000lb hydraulic lift gate, and a complete interior and exterior lighting system for increased visibility. The length of the transporter body is floored with 1-1/8" laminated tongue and groove hardwood. The entire rig's exterior was painted in a custom grey color.

One of the major highlights of the transporter is its 12ft long integrated lounge area. Capable of providing an area of separation from the events happening outside, a zippered enclosure en-sures that you'll have a space to relax in. Complete with a restroom and a workstation with stainless steel countertops and cabinets. The space is also climate controlled, keeping your oc-cupants comfortable regardless of the ambient temperature outside.

A key feature (and requirement) of transporters is utility at the track and space for all the nec-essary items for track days. Luckily, this transporter incorporates a custom belly-box system that allows for more than enough space for supplies and components, easily accessible from the outside. Alongside these belly boxes are the Onan 12.5kW water-cooled generator that powers all accessory systems throughout the transporter. At the rear, one belly box contains the controls for the 6,000lb lift gate, intuitive and reliable to ensure that you're not stranded with cars on the ground or in the truck. A number of electrical outlets are available inside of the belly boxes, as well as a compressed air outlet.

Concept Transporters upgraded the entire cab interior of the Peterbilt, making the space a comfortable and inviting place to spend time while driving to the next destination. Custom gray upholstery with orange and white stripe accents was incorporated throughout the cabin. No surface was left untouched, disassembled, cleaned and reupholstered as necessary. A new headliner was added. Important for transporting valuable cargo in sometimes less-than-ideal spaces, a rearview camera was added and routed to the cab to make maneuvering easier.

When the transporter was completed, it made its maiden voyage to the 2017 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, providing support to its client's racecars. Since then, the transporter has traveled to a number of events, although most of the mileage has been added from traveling to the yearly Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. With the client downsizing his collection, the transporter is ready to make another avid racer happy. Complete, ready to go, and loaded with features to make a track trip as easy as possible, the Concept Peterbilt 372 Transporter is the diamond in the rough, and will certainly be a shining example in the paddock.
