I found these old ads I had saved a few years ago from searching online.  First two are 1977 Models.  Last one is 1978.

.

I never saw the Aux Lights with dual tanks...  Bet thats especially rare.  My dad's 77 Sport had only the Aux Light Switch, but it was where the normal dual tank switch goes.

That’s how I feel about it. Especially with the 400, 4x4, and fleetside, with the interior set up. Unfortunately a loose wire under the dash somewhere has had it sitting for over a year as other projects have taken precedence. But I keep having people trying to buy it from me and have been tempted but keep holding off. Just need to get it rolling again as my weekend beater until I can get it restored one day.

Hello,

I am brand new to this forum. I am in the middle of a restoration, and I am desperately looking for a picture of my trucks original paint. I have the RPO sheet and the paint codes, but it says "Chevy Sport 2 tone" and "Chevy Sport Equipment". I know it has been resprayed before, so I am not sure the current paint layout is correct. Does anyone know how to figure out what it looked like from the factory? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You would need to provide more info than that for anyone to help. The SPID label, Vin, pics of the truck, YMM at the very least.

Sure, that makes sense. It's a 1979 C10 Scottsdale. I will catch on. Bear with me.

That is amazing! And a much more labor-intensive paint job than I had planned for her. I guess I have my work cut out for me.

Thanks guys!

If the Paint Job will be too much, maybe have a vinyl wrap/stripes made up for it.  They were vinyl stripes from the factory.

I found some more evidence of the old vinyl stickers. Does anyone know where i can get the specs for this sticker kit so i can have one made? Size, font, color? I know the 2 colors now to be paint code 25 and 26 but there is a 3rd which i suspect to be 14 Silver Poly.

Either find someone who knows how to do custom paint or a place that does graphic wraps or DIY
