Don't want to hijack this thread, but does anyone know what year those outside mirrors were an option? As far back as '74?

They were a 80's option. I think starting in 81 is it with the new front sheet metal.

I Think that they started in 1980 but I could be wrong.

Not OEM. Believe they are '77 back low back buckets. Going to switch to a bench.

Interesting bucket setup, and agree, not original. The seat bottom shape looks like the 73-77 low back style but the seat back shape looks more like 69-72 style. But who knows. You will probably make some decent money swapping to bench if you sell the buckets. (I'd keep em, but that's just me, I like buckets ) Great find, looks like a real nice truck, enjoy!

That is a really nice pickup!

Is it a 3/4 ton ??? Looks like it based on the tire size.
