On the SPID/option label inside the glove box door. It will look like the pictures posted earlier in this thread.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Nice looking truck and it appears very original.
Loaded up with the Highlander Promo Package "C" (YG8) it had most of the options. With a 402 too that is a really nice find. Noticed the Utah plates, did you just buy it?
After seeing the pictures I can't see putting 18" Foose wheels on it. Part of the Promo Package on C10 trucks included the PA1 wheel covers you have there. The PV6 tires are an option code for five H78-15-B White Stripe tires (including the spare). If the interior is just as nice I'd keep it the way it is.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Thank you, yes I just purchased it about a week ago. Apparently it is an all original truck. I noticed that some of these trucks have steel boxes, mine is wood. Was that another option? Also I wouldn't mind any leads to more information on this truck or these types of trucks.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Also you should know that I am a purist and dnt plan on ruining the integrity of the truck by customizing it with modern parts. The rims I plan to put on are purely cosmetic, I dnt want to mess up any original parts. What do u recommend for a set of tires for this?

E81 is the code for the wood floor bed option. There is a wealth of information on this site if you are simply willing to look it up.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

To recap and get this thread back on track.
My intent is to "find" as many of the "missing" Highlanders out there as possible. Due to the fact the plaid seat covers are not generally available and plaid being... well plaid, many originl trucks have been reworked to more conventional interior colors. After all white is not the easiest of trim colors to live with in a truck!

Many of the trucks I find barely hint at being Highlanders with only the SPID codes as evidence of prior glory.

So here is my general blurb seen often before and the ordering information for those interested in what makes a Highlander or a Promo Package Highlander.

Highlander Plaid Trim was a trim upgrade to Z62 Custom Deluxe or Z84 CST (Blazer only) optioned vehicles that changed interior trim details and added black carpet.

Highlander Promo Package trucks were also offered that bundled options with the Highlander Plaid Trim option.

These were sales savings packages A,B and C with increasing levels of content.

Thus a YG_ coded promo package truck was also a Highlander but a Highlander trim code was NOT ALWAYS a promo package equipped truck.

Highlander Plaid trim codes All include black dash pad, steering column (with or without tilt) and carpet. In addition the door panels, visors, console (Blazer only) and seat belts were always parchment (white). Seat vinyl was also parchment and the insert color is determined by the specific trim code. So the ONLY variable color keyed interior component was the insert color of the seatcovers.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Pickups Custom Deluxe Z62 mandatory option
Avocado 613
Blue 611
Gray 604
Orange 618
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Promo package codes and savings over individual option costs.

A= YG6 Plaid Trim, Special Wheelcovers C10 (PA1) or
Chrome Hubcaps C20-30 (PO3), Chrome Front Bumper, Upper Bodyside Molding (belt, pickups only), Door Edge Guards and Below Eye-Line Mirrors (DG4) A $94.50 savings.

B= YG7 (includes A) Adds Turbo-Hydramatic Trans., Power Steering and Tilt. A $178.50 savings.

C= YG8 (includes A and B) Adds A/C and Tint. A $260.50 savings.



To sum it up, when you ordered a Custom Deluxe for $103 you could add the Highlander Plaid trim colors and carpet to it for another $68.

If the truck was ordered with a YG6, 7 or 8 Highlander Promo Package it included Custom Deluxe, Highlander Plaid Trim and the bundle options specific to the level ordered.

Actually it wouldn't make any difference over just saving them. They are scanned copies of old xerox documents as far as I can tell and I have simply clipped the relevant areas and pasted them in their original size.

Might want to go to GM Heritage and download a 72 Chevy truck packet directly.

Clearly it is not a factory interior. Is the truck a 72? Is it Highlander trim coded?

It's a '71, and the SPID has been removed by a previous owner.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

I believe I found a highlander. it's solid black with a red plaid interior. it does have the upper and lower trim but no 2 tone. it was really clean truck very minor dings and no visible rust threw. he wouldn't let me take pictures of it he doesn't want it shown until it's perfect. another cool find right next to it was a 67 or 68 C60 6x6 in excellent condition. that was a mean looking truck.
