    I'll take it. I have several others, my favorite being the 1967 Chevy Truck sales brochure.

    TT, I'd like to have a few of mine back too. The 67-72 Chevys have always been my favorite. I've been lucky to have owned/built six of them including a Blazer, Suburban and short and long beds. Still have a heavy 3/4 ton long bed for the dump runs. Probably the toughest truck ever built.

    Calvin,

    I don't remember Chevy having a 400 big block.

    As I recall, at various times they had a 396, 402, 427, 454, and a 512 in big block, though.

    Tim, anything past 69 was a 402 but Chevrolet never awknowledged them with their own insignia, they were also building the 400 SBC so it would work for both.

    Timb99, I used to know every option on that generation but will have to shoot from memory here. They did offer the 400 big block in the Cheyenne Supers and Camper Specials, I believe they were actually 402s badged as 400s. My current 72 3/4 was originally a 400 big block truck but was replaced with a small block 350 when the big block spun a bearing.

    Zackly right!!! it was a 402BBC but the fender badges said 400..Mine was copper metallic and white, and had the brown interior that looked like tooled leather..a beautiful truck and sounded great too! I put on a dual exhaust system with Cherry Bomb glass packs

    The photo posted of the 1971 is the same color/trim as my first Chevy truck, a 1972 Cheyenne 3/4 ton, Camper Special, 400 big block. With the beefed up rear springs, it did indeed ride like a truck when not loaded. It hauled a 10 1/2' cab over camper easily. Lots of power, but the gas mileage was pretty bad, however in those days gas was probably .50 cents/gallon.

    Calvin,

    I dated a girl who had a Chevy truck with that same color scheme except I think hers had a 6-banger instead of the big block.
