Finished in a twotone dark blue inset surrounded by medium blue, the trucks paint and trim are in overall very good order with minor imperfections. The trucks bodywork is straight and solid, its windows are clear and intact, as are the signature wraparound taillights, dual headlamps with parking lights/turn signals beneath the headlights and its partially hidden windshield arms. Trucks with an optional trim level but without an additional wheel upgrade, received flatter stainless steel hubcaps, still with painted accents.
This crew cab rolls on Michelin tires, size LT245/75R16 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted to a steel wheel and topped with a flat, factory wheel cover. The wheels are in good, original order while the tires are in very good shape.
The trucks engine bay is very tidy, the battery appears newer, the chrome bumpers are in very good shape and the cargo bed and tailgate, with a bedliner, is bodycolor and in very good condition. Under that counterbalanced hood, with an interior release, is its original Chevys 454 CID bigblock V8 with a fourbarrel carburetor. This motor is buttoned to its original TurboHydramatic 400 threespeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, power steering, power brakes with discs in front, cruise control, sliding rear window, cargo bed light and tilt steering column. This example also has a pair of fuel tanks, offering a 40gallon capacity and activated via a toggle switch on the dash next to the folddown ashtray.
Inside, the trucks blue vinyl interior is in overall very good order. The blue benches are in great shape, as is the complementing blue carpet with white headliner. The twospoke steering wheel is in good, original shape, as is the instrument panel with its full array of gauges and the inner door liners. Completing the interior is an updated pushbutton AM/FM stereo with original volume and selector knobs.
An allnew clean sheet redesign of General Motors Chevrolet and GMC brand C/KSeries pickups debuted in mid1972 for the 1973 model year. Development of the new thirdgeneration trucks began in 1968 with vehicle components undergoing simulated testing on computers before the first prototype pickups were even built for realworld testing. The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Aside from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The thirdgeneration trucks are colloquially known as the Squarebody or Boxbody generation. GMs official RoundedLine moniker highlighted the pickups rounded styling cues that were incorporated into the design. This included rounded windshield corners, rounded corners of the cab roof, roundedcorner doors, which cut high into the cab roof eliminating roof height, slanted front fenders and rounded pickup box corners which allowed for wraparound taillamps, a first for GM pickups. The design also featured strong distinctive curved shoulderlines which rounded out below the beltline. The curved shoulderline continued across the back tailgate on Chevrolet Fleetside and GMC Wideside models. However, the low slope of the hood and rectangular front end of the truck originated the square/boxbody nickname, which was propagated through truck magazines and wordofmouth. There was also a unique available hidden radio antenna embedded into the windshield.
There were two types of pickup boxes to choose from. The first type, called Fleetside by Chevrolet and Wideside by GMC, was a fullwidth pickup box and featured a flared shoulderline to complement the cab in addition to rounded box corners and the new aforementioned rounded wraparound taillamps. Both steel and wood floors were available. The second type, called Stepside by Chevrolet and Fenderside by GMC, was a narrow width pickup box featuring steps and exposed fenders with standalone tail lamps. Initially, only wood floors were available.
For 1977 models, power windows and power door locks were introduced as an optional extra. There was another round of new grilles, revised inner door panels that left less metal exposed and an electric oil pressure gauge replacing the mechanical unit.
