    There is a Chalet in the nickle ads, it has been there for along time.
    $4000, it looks to be in realy good shape. It is in the camper section.

    Factory camper shell...

    The Chev was called a Chalet
    The GMC was the 'Casa Grande'

    Both are fairly rare and I'm sure I'll get corrected but I think 76 was the last year...

    Is that factory? Or is an aftermarket thing. Either way it's kind of cool.

    IT'S MOSTLY MAUI WAUI.... BUT IT'S GOT SOME LABRADOR IN IT

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    If 76 was the last year then they only made them for one year, because 75 was the last year of the full topper. But I think your right maybe they only made them for one year....

    It was factory prototype that went production about the same time Chevy and GMC came out with the heavy half. It was a bit getting use to but very functional.

    they were made in 76 and 77. hard to come buy. I have seen 3 in my life (all within the past year) and still know where one is at for sale! the guy isnt asking to much for its condition. If somebody is interested in it PM me for info!

    saw a pic of a black one on here one time. really sweet. clean, meaty tires, a definite head-turner. i'd love to have one as a weekender.
