The Trucks That Built a Global Brand | Chevrolet


100 years after the brand's inception, Chevrolet looks back at the trucks that have made a global impact.

I especially like the picture of the Blazer Chalet which was made in 1975 through 1977 and was a K10 Blazer without the top and had a fiberglass slip in camper made by Chinook. It was a super vehicle for two people and the super short wheelbase made it so maneuverable. Got to take a demo on a camping trip once and it was awesome.

Actually '76-'77 only for the Blazer Chalet & GMC Jimmy Casa Grande, and the camper units were more accurately described as bolt-ons instead of slide-ins. They really were not designed to be removed and replaced with any ease.
