No title, run away.....
Not an 80. Look closer. Stacked dual headlights, like what they ran in the eighties.
I have a '75, and for some reason the grills used from about '73-'76 are nearly impossible to find as a reproduction. You can retrofit a newer grill, but have to add the cutout for the outside hood release lever and possibly change the metal brackets in the grill. I used an original GMC grill to keep the truck looking good, but it is from about a '79 truck.
80 was an odd year. They have the single square light. 81 - 87 Silverado's have 4 headlights. Custom deluxe also have the larger single headlight but the turn signal is in the grill just under the light.
Yep, I'm familiar. I've owned examples of all. The one posted though, has 2 stacked lamps, in the 70's style bezel, instead of the one large square lamp.
Right, it's a strange setup. Not factory.
Factory tach, always cool.
I grew up in the 70's and 80's and I've never seen that headlamp "conversion" before.
Sure would like an up close picture of that headlight bucket. Almost looks like they carefully shaved out the center of the factory bezel to fit the dual bucket inside it. Stick doesn't look like the same space between the headlights as my '86 duals, set real close together to fit in the cavity I'll bet so center between buckets trimmed too. Late 70's-early 80's, I remember all sorts of customized stuff running around in vans, blazers and trucks, i'ts when I got interested in custom fab.
Got to be similar to this '77 El Camino.
Ahh, the mustache grill, lol. Could even be a bucket from 79 dodge like the lil red express had.
Separate names with a comma.
