mr_dellorto, we'll wait for our resident expert. Your information is a bit off.

Well, from what I can deduce, this is a Chevrolet 3500 product, as per the badge length. This is also a stepside version, as shown by the bed. Any more shots of the front? I can't establish a year unless I see the front of the truck, but I can tell that it is between the 1981-1987 model years.

Itís a 1981-1985 Chevrolet C-30 Fleetside Big Dooley in YE9 upper first class trim: known as the top-of-the-line Silverado.
If it were GMC, the Sierra Classic trim level name would be stacked. "Sierra" would sit atop "Classic".

Again, it was not very common for a Silverado or Sierra Classic pickup or utility to be used as a "work" vehicle, even though the hardware to do so was still there. Generally they entered laborious work after being purchased secondhand, as they were much more affordable.

Dependable as usual :)

What would eliminate the 1986-1988 model years as possibilities?

Oh, I made a typo, that "5" should be a "6". But to answer your question, it has black-on-chrome windshield trim, which eliminates a '87-'88. Starting with '87 models, windshield and back glass trim was black-on-black, no matter the trim level package.

What screwed me up is if you look in the thumbnail the badge looks a lot more like the font GMC used for Sierra but I knew it wasn't a base model. I am still not convinced it says Silverado.

Well it's a Silverado because of the overall appearance, not just the name badge. It has all the proper chrome trim, paint job, etc.

don't get me wrong, I don't doubt Neptune's assessment of the trim, (I thought the same thing). It would not be the first time that a vehicle had the incorrect badges applied though.

Always a possibility although I think the chances are pretty low here especially. The truck actually looks quite remarkable for its age and there is no visible damage. It looks absolutely mint.

well hopefully Taco created some more captures of it, looking at it on youtube there are a few shots of the emblem without the actors standing in front of it. (also a side shot of the front end although I don't know if it would tell us anything) I was wrong though as it is 100% a Chevrolet emblem (but I still think it *could say Scottsdale). I can't tell with the low-quality image on youtube though.

lol @Neptune, no there is one thing that I am certain of and it is that you know your rounded lines (probably better than GM)
