@ Jale:
If I'm not mistaken, there was no P-1500 for Chevrolet, as the 4-digit model names were specific to GMC until 1988. And 1500 would mean a ½-ton model (7 or 8 feet body) which was dropped from the line in 1980, while this one has the wheel rims and dual rear wheels of a 1-ton version (Chevrolet Step-Van P-30 / GMC Value Van P-3500).
The rounded horizontal bar above the wheel arch indicates an aluminum body.

IMCDb habits give it the Chevrolet make by default.

Sorry, but originally it wasn't my idea naming those vans P-1500 --> /vehicle.php?id=123337

And please, don't remove UCBC from extra info. It's quite important, because with this higher roof and rounded bar on the side it's obviously not a regular Chevrolet Step-Van/GMC Value Van...

Edit: renamed as UCBC Step Van

I disagree: the rounded bar indicates just an aluminum body, sold by Chevrolet/GMC. The higher roof was also available in GM's catalogs, and it wasn't especially an UCBC body:

(Chevrolet Step-Van: excerpts of the 1973 & 1978 brochures)

UCBC (Union City Body Company) body was just the provider of the standard body used by GM step vans from 1968 until the early 1990. So we had to rename all Chevrolet Step-Vans and GMC Value Vans in the IMCDb if we wanted to follow your idea...

It's not only question of higher roof, but roof with specific edges, as in the main picture. Vans with this kind of roof hasn't Chevrolet/GMC grill. On Your brochures roof has rounded edges of regular Step-Van/Value Van.
