Re: 72 Chevy P/U questions
glad you have come to the chevy world.
Which body style is the 72 and 3/4? The older 71 style or the newer 73+ style? You will need to know that when ordering parts.
Many body parts and drive train parts are interchangeable between 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks, but not every piece. So double check before ordering. I can think of only a few pieces which do not interchange between 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks, so for the most part you are safe. There may be slight styling differences between 1/2 and 3/4 trucks on some body parts, and differences across years. But most these differences are cosmetic.
One additional note. Many places are making new chevy truck body parts. However, they are all not created equal. You do get what you pay for when it comes time to fit them to the truck.
