    I have to find me one of those. While the box says that it is an 84. The front bumper says that it is an 81-82.

    That model was originally sold as the "Fall Guy" truck. You can still see a line on the side of the bed that was for a storage compartment. I bought a copy of that model to rob it for parts for my 1:24 Blazer build. I am using this one and a "Mad Mudder". The model was to test paint colors and sell the wife on a few upgrades.
