Yes right, Luc. I wanted to hint on that but forgot ...
Kataranga, you are probably right, didn't save that in my brain. I beg your pardon...
Overall I love those articles about old kit lines. Please keep them coming!
I looked through my LWB Dodge pickups several months ago. I have years 73 to 77. The side trim was the same for the kit years 72 to 76 (I think), the trim level is D100 Adventurer SE. The moldings are the ones that go over the wheel wells. This is only correct for 72 to 74 (or 75?). MPC corrected it to straight moldings for the 77 model. Additionally the "100"-script is on the cab from 72 to 76 on the kit, "Adventurer SE" on the bed. They again changed it in 77.
I might have mixed it up a bit, as I didn't compare every year to original truck pics and some time has gone by since I did this research. But my conclusion was that one has to change/kitbash quite a bit to build a really accurate 75/76 truck. I think they are quite accurate for 72 and 73 and then for 77 (and probably 78) again. 74 is ok as well, possibly.
Also I found they never changed much in the interior, just like the AMT Ford pickup 75-78. So here again is much work needed to get it really right.
