Chevy Models

What's the difference between all the 73-87 Chevy model names? There was Silverado, Custom, Custom Deluxe, Scottsdale...
I, not being from that time, [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] can't seem to comprehend all the different names. Is it like using ls, lt, lx, etc. Now?

Re: Chevy Models

The names referred to trim levels of the trucks base options, from the plain jane work truck to the top of the line silverado. you could order other options for the various levels but the names reflect the base model truck without options.

Re: Chevy Models

Not sure about the Cheyenne being on the bottom. I know the 1972 Super Cheyenne 2wd's are one of the most saut after trucks there is....not sure why but I bet it was a fully loaded model.

Re: Chevy Models

I think there was also a Sierra and a High Sierra in the mix there, somewhere, too.

Some of the models may have been Chevys and others GMC's...

Re: Chevy Models

I know the GMC's were the: Sierra, Sierra Classic, and the High Sierra. The Sierra name also carried over from the '80's GMC trucks into the '90's trucks, but instead of the Sierra Classic or High Sierra they changed to Sierra SL, SLE, and SLT depending on options/ trim packages.

Re: Chevy Models

Well, thank goodness for the new trim levels and all the trucks being Silverado's and just add a SLT or a SL. Its way easier now than it ever was before.

Re: Chevy Models

the '71 cheyenne super was the most sought after cuz of the 400 big block (402ci, 300hp, 400lb-ft of torque) it came with. you could get that or the new (new to cst) 350 small block.

Re: Chevy Models

<font color=purple>Chevy's order is:

Custom
Custom Deluxe
Scottsdale
Cheyenne
Silverado

There was also a Bonanza some years that was basically the same level as the Silverado.

GMC's I'm not as sure on the order. I believe it is as follows:

Sierra
High Sierra
Sierra Grande
Sierra Classic</font color=purple>
