The following is a 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne 3/4 Ton Pickup. This truck has a proper 292 cu in (4.8 L) I6 with an extremely rare and fun to drive three speed column stick shift.
The restoration of this truck was one man's labor of love and it shows in every detail on the truck. While not a complete rotisserie restoration it nonetheless is excellent. From the carefully preserved factory inspection numbers in the engine bay to the beautiful wood floor panels in the truck bed, this truck is a pleasure to see and drive.
The yellow & white exterior paint is absolutely beautiful with laser straight body panels. The original body gap fit is superb as well. The chrome front and rear bumpers are in excellent shape and are original. The entire front aluminum grill has no dents, dings or imperfections.
The interior is original to the truck but the carpet is new OEM and looks great. The door sills are crisp and tidy, all the door wells and door jams are also clean and in original shape. The truck has never been smoked in and the cigarette lighter has never been used. The glove box couldn't be in any better condition. Everything works as it should.
Underside is excellent with no signs of corrosion on any of the fenders, bed or rocker panels. The cab bottom appears original and in great condition and was not restored. Upon inspection one of the cab supports does show signs of rust at one time but appears to have been cleaned up but not welded as seen in the pictures.
Once you open the hood you will see the 292 I6 engine combined with a three speed manual transmission which runs perfect and shifts smoothly between all the gears. The engine bay was professionally detailed and brought back to original factory condition while preserving the factory markings. The perimeter around the motor was also detailed and restored to the correct flat black factory paint; it looks as if it just left the factory.
Clean, straight, well maintained examples like this are impossible to find. With 1972 examples reaching incredible prices at the 2016 Barrett Jackson, Scottsdale auction, this truck represents an outstanding investment as well. See recent values.
This truck is beautiful and the object of attention wherever it goes.
