    Ya know I don't think I have ever seen a Jimmy with CST on the door!!?? Good question! I would think GM would offer the Custom Sport Truck pakage on their GMC line too. Duno though.......... /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    Not CST, that is a Chevy thing. I think there is a Sierra package or something like that though. Would basically match the CST options.

    Custom Package

    My 71 Jimmy Custom had woodgrain trim and tailgate band, "Custom" script above door handle, chrome trim around windshield, chrome vent window frames, scrolled interior, tinted glass, 350-4V, and chrome sticks for transmission (manual) and transfer case. There may be more that distinguishes it from the mid-trim package. What else did the CST have?

    Yeah, that's it - "Custom". Sounds like the same stuff as Chevy's CST option. I know some CSTs came with the chrome shifters - maybe only some years?

    by looks of it, it's a basic model. no chrome trime around the window, no chrome bumpers, no tinted windows. It is a GMC with a 4spd, though. body looks pretty strait from the pic i've seen.

    /forums/images/icons/grin.gif LOL, it would of been #4. i sold #3, i guess i need a replacement. never had a GMC either, never had a stock 4sp either, comes with factory A/C. i can make a bunch of other excuses... i gotta check it out then i'll see if it'll be #4, then again gotta finish #1 and #2. but it looks like a good deal. you just had to stir thing up for me... /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Custom Package

    My 72 K5 is a highly optioned "mid trim" model, no chrome around the windshield or vent windows, black T/C stick, black stripe trim with no tailgate band, but chrome bumpers, A/C, auto, tach and tinted windows...

    Z84 CST would have chrome tranny and case handles, and jungleboy's truck is probably a Z62 Custom Comfort and Appearance

    I agree Chevy is CST and GMC is Custom. Dad had a 67 GMC pickup bought new that was custom. It had a rectangle shaped insignia on the front fenders that said custom. it was like 2 inches wide by about 10 inches tall.
