Noone makes a diecast of the 73'-87' for some reason. The closest you will find is a body to an r/c car. I have a website on my other computer favorites, as soon as get back to it I will post it up for you. I think there is also a thread on here about them but I'll try to find for ya.

There's a 1:64th out there. I make these USB Flash Drives--




... and made a few 77'ish ones for a guy a couple of years ago. I now only make the 67-72 (if anyone is interested, drop me a PM). A few more pics here.

Here is the one I was talking about. I had a picture of it built on a lowered frame but can't find it yet. It is an 80' but as close as I have seen other than the small ones.

I collect alot of models cars and have never found a square body other than the small 1/64. I was at a local car show and a vendor was there and said they don't make them. They make the bodystyle before and after but skipped the squarebody, not sure why. I wanted to get one to paint it like I want my also but closest is the r/c body.

For anyone interested, I do have several of the 1:64 trucks (67-72) with built-in USB flash drives for sale. I've currently got 1 red, 1 green, and have parts for building about a dozen red ones, fewer of the green, and a couple of the fairly rare purple or gold. I also have a couple 1:80 black SWB fleetsides around here somewhere... I carry one of these as my personal flash drive and always get a double-take when "back the truck" into the port on someone's machine.

PM me if interested, and we can discuss my _very reasonable_ prices there.

It's been a long time since I have seen any of the plastic models in stores. Here is the site I found the r/c body if you can't find one.

not long there the plastic models that you glue together , you can find them in hobbie stores or on ebay , ill post more pics of others im doin , what i find easier to do is to hot glue them together , i also take the metal diecast cars apart and use parts on these one , i have racing seats in the black on and i have rims on both of them , the ones that come with them or small and shitty lol , but you would be able to finish one of these in a few hrs from start to finish with paint and everything

For anyone interested in a great novelty/functional item, if you pick up one of the Edelbrock trucks and send it my way, I can convert it into a fully functional USB flash drive that you can carry pictures, files, music, whatever data you want on...

See this post and this post, both in the current thread for info. PM if interested.

There used to be a sterside kit for like a '73-'80 model from I think AMT. I remember it. I used to see it at AC Moore's on the shelf. I'm not much for stepsides but it was kinda cool though. I also know there are or were several model kits for '67-'72 C10s. I know my uncle put one together oh so many years ago. Anybody realize how expensive model kits are? Geez better off with the real thing.

I have an all steel AMT 69 Chevy Blazer kit. I bought it when I built a 69 Blazer.

Never built the model, it's sitting, NIB on my book case.

These are Maisto 1/64th Scale. Look up Clodbuster for a bigger size R/C body...
