Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

Ran across Bmxghostriders for sale post yesterday and saw his Squarebody Chevy pickup. Thought I would start a Squarebody thread. Here is my 1977 Cheyenne(only year with yellow trim)

Here's my old beater 79' GMC Short bed.

My uncle bought this brand new in 79'. He totaled it twice and had it rebuilt. He passed away a few years ago and I acquired it. Havn't really changed much except the engine and exhaust.

Re: Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

I've always liked the square bodies.  They are my second favorite behind the 67-72's.  James, that is one clean truck.  I love the stock but dropped look.  The others are nice, but the white '77 fits my taste.

I had an 82 Cheyenne with a straight six 250.  I bought it used and it had a lot of issues.  After the headgasket blew, I got rid of it.  Wasn't a good experience, but doesn't mean I wouldn't own another one, just need to be smarter about it.

I did. 6.0/4l80e. Truck hauled a$$. Put a little too much time and $ into it, but it was fun. I'll do another one. I have had a couple of 71's also. Might do a 67 or 68 next.

My 1972 K20
I built this up with NOS parts bedsides, tailgate, doors, fenders and grille. Then a cowl hood. Had about 8 in. of lift and set on Weld wheels and 37in Goodyear MTR's. Had a built up 350 and a turbo 400 with a Dana 44 up frt and a Corp 14 rear end. The thing rode like a log wagon but man I miss it.
