Man Oh Man! Looking at that bad boy brings back memories! My dad had a '73 SWB Cheyenne painted just like that (except the white top) when I was a kid. He had dual glasspacks, 10" ET slotted mags, and fat RWL BFG's on it. It was optioned out and had the tan/saddle? interior with the matching woodgrain on the dash pad, instrument cluster and door panels. I loved that truck, and was so mad when he sold it. Everybody called it 'Ol Red, even though it was orange, which I always thought was weird. I would love to have a restored one just like it!

ive only ever seen one other truck like that, and ive lived in many states all over the country too.
his was a 305/350 combo with dual tanks, red vinyl bench, dummy lights, red rubber floor, it was a scottsdale i remember, i always thought that was a type of dog and thats what i called the truck, "dog".

we customized it when i got to age 16. all sky blue, over-the-bedside toolboxes painted silver with matching ugliest-rear-bumper-i-ever-seen out back to replace the original, tinted the windows, molded the tailgate smooth and sunk a fold down license plate in the middle so we didnt have to flip the handle, then gave it gray cloth buckets, modified console, and steering wheel from a 93 or so cavalier, and a nice lil factory buick tape player knobbed radio and kraco booster/eq in the middle console, and 6 factory gm 6x9s from the junkyards that was loud as SH!+ and everything inside we had to change color on that was left we smothered in cheap grey carpet... and it got new whitewalls on rallies with NO DROP, WTF? i just couldnt talk him into it...AT ALL!

oh yeah, damn brings back memories, i gotta find that pic so you can see what your truck's lil brother looked like new (since dad's was a swb)
