There is just something about a clean square-body Chevy dually. What that un-tangible thing actually is might be difficult to pin down, though. Certainly the lines of the 1973-87/91 Chevrolet trucks are appreciated…you don’t make one body style of a vehicle more or less unchanged for almost twenty years without customer support, and to earn customer support you build what the customer wants. The dually part you either like or don’t, and we dig the look of four tires out back with over-fenders. Since this was reserved for only the C/K-30 level truck, that means work capability and hauling prowess…as much as you could get in for the year. And speaking of prowess, if you wanted a big-block anything that came close to being a family vehicle of any kind, this is how you got one. It’s no 1970 Chevelle, but the 454ci mill was still available. 230 horsepower and 360 ft/lbs of torque sound absolutely dinky compared to the net horsepower numbers from back in the day, but for the year, you were going to struggle to find better output.

We know that Chad has been on the lookout to replace the $200 Hauler Suburban and that he’s been entertaining a great deal of vehicles. Not saying he will jump at it, but maybe…

    I’d love to modernize one. I wonder if it is the oldest “41U” color code that keeps people gawking all the way to its own midnight edition of today.
