Gavito Trucking's 2000 Peterbilt 379

Updated Feb 6, 2022

This 2000 Peterbilt 379 was the first brand-new truck that Fort Lupton, Colorado-based Gavito Trucking purchased. The rig is dedicated to Gavito Chief Operating Officer Laura Gavito's father-in-law, who dreamed of owning a brand-new Peterbilt but never did. The truck was refurbished in 2017-2018, but kept the same paint scheme and colors. "Our goal was to keep it as classic as the day we bought her," Laura Gavito said. The sleeper displays the names of Laura's children, and the frame shows baby feet with Laura's grandchildren's initials and birthdates. The rig features a Cat C15 with an 18-speed.
