Square-body Chevrolet trucks had already been in production for ten years the day I was born, so suffice it to say, I’m pretty versed to seeing them around and about. Older or newer, truck or Suburban or Blazer or whatever, they are an iconic design that anybody could own. They work like a pack mule, are stone-simple to maintain, and hold a place in gearhead hearts everywhere. They are just a damn good truck, and millions of people love the way they look. As Chad has mentioned, one of the most memorable looks for the square trucks is the two-tone paint schemes, especially the treatment applied to the 1973-79 trucks.
I saw this truck pop up on Facebook a couple of days ago and thought that someone had put together a really cool custom truck. The paint looks great, and when combined with white-painted versions of the base model’s wagon-spoke wheel on BFG All-Terrain T/As, it has the right look all over. But this wasn’t just someone’s concept…this was a build that Blake Greenfield Chevrolet-Buick in Wells, Minnesota put together, and in a flash-fire of interest, is a concept that the dealership is going to pursue.
According to a Facebook post: “Due to an overwhelming nationwide interest in the custom built truck, Blake Greenfield Chevrolet Buick has made the decision to begin taking orders to customize trucks.
