I am not sure when the 'Cheyenne' name was added to Chevy's pick up, but do remember my 72
annual box stating CHEYENNE.
Most of the 67-72's I have are CS & CST, Some have the Cheyenne badge too.
Location of the badge, being a CS or CST will help with the model year of the kit.
I have 69's with the CS/CST on the door directly under the window, and on the front fender
just in front of the door line That is the location of the Cheyenne badge if it has that.
My first of this era Chevy/GMC pickup was the MPC 71 Annual New.
I now have several of them, though am not sure as to which are MPC & which are AMT
unless I got them in the box.
I have 3 unbuilt/started GMC shortbox Stepside, 4 of the MPC Longbox Stepside,
2 of the Heavy Pedal Long-Stepside issue, 2 '67's one a resin conversion,
69 awaiting restoration completion, 2 more 69's that Had the Motor home body
now only cab/chassis 71 Fire Truck resto project (no grill but the 71 front bumper),
boxed 71 Pickup with Wedge. That one was painted awaiting paint stripper. 2 of the Stock
hubcaps are damaged, but otherwise it is complete
I THINK I have a 68, but am not sure.
I got a lot of 5 Built painted that all I have done so far is replace the custom rims/tires with Stock tires & hubcaps
I need to take pic's of these!!.
I also got a LARGE lot of parts/built's from a "Wacko" dealer on evilbay at a VERY CHEAP price and have
maybe 5-6 more to work with including 2 Hazzard Tow trucks and 4-5 More of the Tow truck parts!!!
Also in the lot but in bad shape are 2 sets of Sierra Grande pickup bed sides!!
Just wish the script was in better shape!
Do you think I Like this era Chevy/GMC Pickup????
I found a couple pic's of my 65 Open Road project.
Sorry they are so dark, but my camera is Old, 1.3 MP and does not like to take flash pics
Notice some Chrome on the Dually centers??
They were the Chrome Reverse rims in the kit. The outer rings are from the parts box.
Tires are Rubber Firestone Gum-Dipped Darlingtons!!!!
Yes the ones from AMT's Turnpike Slotcar sets!!
They fit the wheel wells and look large enough for the build
