Heavy half ton was a smog loophole gm used not to have to smog a 1/2 ton truck.Its not rare at all unless it has maybe some special option.

They're not common, but they're not unheard of. They pop up once in a while. They're not "worth more money" kinda rare, necessarily, but a factory 1/2 ton 454 is pretty cool. Maybe you can give us more info on what you are trying to figure out.
