1976 Chevy C30 Cheyenne Super (Camper Special) – Thoroughly redesigned from stem to stern, the all-new third generation C/K trucks for 1973 proved to be the longest lived series in Chevrolet’s history and the three-box styling has proved quite popular since. Aside from wheels and hubcaps, there really wasn’t much that was round anywhere in the design other than the body sides that featured a sculpted character line with a central plateau panel as well as curved side glass, a first on a GM truck. Trim lines were also revamped, ranging from the entry-level Custom to the Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and top-end Cheyenne Super. They were shuffled for 1975, with the Scottsdale moniker replacing the Cheyenne Super as the top-of-the-line package, while the Custom series was deleted. The next year, Chevy was back up to four trim lines with the addition of the Silverado at the top of the series. By and large, this remained the trim hierarchy for the remainder of series production.
One look at this unique C30 and a multitude of possible uses come to mind. Camping, hunting, NASCAR races, car shows, touring the US, or maybe just a spare bedroom that resides on your driveway! We’ll start by saying that the camper seen in photos has expired. We left it on to show the potential of how great these trucks look with camper shells. Plus the 43 years worth of stickers on the rear of this one are just pretty damn cool. But, unfortunately this shell has had some wood and water damage and it’s in poor shape. In contrast, the 1-ton C30 underneath the camper is great! This Chevy is very original and looks great in its factory two-tone, Medium Lime & Light Green paint. Camper trucks are rarely used as daily drivers and this truck was parked in the Sacramento area for several years with very minimal use. Between those two factors we believe the current odometer reading of 59k miles to be accurate. It does show its age but overall it is a great running truck. When it arrived to TX from CA, we inspected it from head to toe and replaced the front brakes. Other than brakes, everything else looked to be working as it should. We feel confident this classic Chevy has no major mechanical needs and is ready for its next adventure. A complete list of features and options on this Cheyenne Super 3+3 includes; Original 7.4L 454 V8 (215hp), Auto, RWD, Cold A/C, Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes (front), Adjustable Air Shocks, Chrome Grill, Chrome Mirrors, Cruise Control, Dual Tanks, Rubber Floormats, Original Owners Manual, Sliding Rear Window, Spare Tire, Soft-Ray Tinted Glass, Tow Package, Woodgrain Interior Trim, 16″ Pacific Dually Simulators, and thick 235/85R16 Tires! High levels of originality, unique looks, low miles, and a strong mechanical condition all make this camper a true “time capsule” that is great for all occasions and uses!
