It's a LEER. Someone said that they aren't made for our trucks anymore though.

It was on the truck when I bought it. However, I've seen them at different truck accessory places.

I would love to be able to find one just like that. Perfect height - the right angle to the cab... Man. Nice one!

This is my 67', but the shell is only on there to keep the rain off of the wood bed.

Re: 67-72 Trucks with CAPs/TOPPERs Photos

Wouldn't put one on anything I own but here's a "Zimmer" camper top on a parts truck I had recently. It's the extra tall great grampa style I think.

It since has met it's fate with the business end of my sawzall but did save the glass and just sold the window crank handles on ebay for $5.99

The rest is in a pile waiting for a ride to the scrap yard.

Re: 67-72 Trucks with CAPs/TOPPERs Photos

There is a white 69 that runs a 70's style one in my area. It actually looks good on that truck but personally I'm not a big fan of them. I have to say that the one on Nightmare's truck is changing my mind. I wouldn't hesitate to put one on a 4x4 truck.

My "custom" camper. The entire sides open upwards. Not sure what year it is for, it doesn't quite fit.

Softopper. The proper one is the late model Ford size. The new chevy has a shorter cab height.

And we won two best of shows at Hot August Nights (Peppermill and Atlantis) and won the autocross truck category at Goodguys Phoenix with a topper on it!

Re: 67-72 Trucks with CAPs/TOPPERs Photos

I just purchased this 1972 Cheyenne C10 Custom Camper.
I've never seen a C10 ordered as a Custom Camper.
It was a one owner stored for years. Everything is original, including the tires. The canopy has never been removed. The wood bed is like new.

Now THAT is my kinda topper, looks great - my favorite style. Sure don't see many for sale these days, not old ones anyways. Guess most didn't hold up too well over the years of use. Would love to find one like that style though - NEARBY! Ha. Thanks for sharing.

As for C10s as Custom Campers, no, they're not common as most associated camper-duty with 3/4 ton or above, but you could order them. Below is a nice one I just saw at the Fort Worth Goodguys show a few months ago. REALLY like your truck! Original tach and AM/FM truck. Unfortunately, per your SPID, it would appear as though someone added the Custom Camper scripts to your truck, it's not a Custom Camper - no Z81 on the SPID. DF2 mirrors does not mean it's a Custom Camper. Placement of your Custom Camper scripts is correct (for a 72, below is where 69-71 had the nameplate), but a truck would only leave the factory as a Custom Camper if Z81 were on the SPID.
