Re: Mexican Chevy Truck

Huh...that's weird. So are those 67-72 tails and 73-87(91) rear dually fender clearance lights?

WTH is going on with that tailgate? Not supposed to be flat...no bueno.

Re: Mexican Chevy Truck

Their actually taken to mexico and made like that. They also do Ferd Lobos instead of Ferd F-150. All the emblems are different and actually pretty cool. They also do a or did a Dodge Charger. Which was a truck with a built in camper kinda like a tahoe. Its actually a real nice ride.

Re: Mexican Chevy Truck

this is a Mexican version produced by "Camiones Dina". dina engine, was manufactured in the platform of the Cheyenne 73-87. for me it is really ugly that bed

The name DINA stands for Diesel Nacional, a company owned by the Mexican government. Diesel Nacional not only builds trucks, but automobiles, buses, & tractors as well. The company recently purchased a 60 per cent interest in Motores Perkins, a manufacturer of diesel engines. This move gave DINA a virtual monoply of diesel engine manufacturing in Mexico.

DINA began manufacturing trucks in the late 1950's at a new factory in Ciudad Sahagun. The original DINA trucks used a body based on the American Diamond T truck. In addition to this model, many new models have been introduced in the past few years. Until recently, DINA has concentrated their commercial efforts in the line of heavy duty trucks and buses. In the field of buses, they control 65 per. cent of the Mexican market. Their heavy duty trucks account for almost 50 per cent of the Mexican market.

In 1975 DINA entered the fast growing market for smaller pickup trucks. These new pickup trucks were introduced as 1000 and 3000 models, based on International designs. The 1000 model was a 1 ton model, and the 3000 model was capable of carrying 3 tons. These new pickups became extremely popular in a short time. Many luxury options were available to dress up the pickup line. The new DINA 1000 & 3000 series are built in the northern city of Monterrey; they converted the bankrupt Borgward car factory for the exclusive production of the 1000-3000 series. This factory had been vacant since 1971, although it was only three years old at that time. DINA also received the contract to build all of Mexico City's new buses. These buses are totally designed and built by DINA and are ultra modern by current standards. DINA also received a contract to build subway cars 'for Mexico City's modern "Metro". All in all, DINA has expanded rapidly and continues to take a large share of the commercial vehicle market. Being government owned, they receive favorable treatment from all sectors of business.

DINA 1000






and this is a Cheyenne 1991, believes only be marketed in Mexico with this front

I've seen these around SoCal many times. Not all that uncommon in our area from LA to San Diego areas. Typically driven up from BAJA.

Re: Mexican Chevy Truck

I'm kind of diggin' the chrome speedo and fuel gauge needle holder things. What's the gauge in the upper left? Oil pressure? I haven't ever seen one like that.

Re: Mexican Chevy Truck

Did anyone notice that they are labeled C15, C20 and C35 instead of the regular Chevy C10, C20 and C30. Also notice the brown short box has 5 lug wheels and is labled a Cheyenne 20.
