    I went looking at a 4x4 burb and the guy had a blazer sitting there! He had a 1st gen 71 or 72 (I think) K5 (with the K5 emblems) that also had an extra option emblem under the door windows. Three letters - sxt? maybe? I don't remember the letters. He did say it was rare.

    Does anyone know about this? He said it had power steering, brakes and A/C from the factory.

    Just wondering.

    probably "cst" (custom). For what reason, I have no Idea. Maybe custom cab. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Yeah, it's CST. It was the high-end trim line, as I recall, like the 'Cheyenne' for '73+. Stands for 'Custom Sport Truck', and is prized among gen-1 people... I donno that I'd call it rare, though.

    Post in the gen-1 section and Greg or somebody who knows better will tell you all about it... or look on the Brochures pages for 69-72, there's some detail in there.

    Thanks - just wanted to let him know. He's not into computers so he doesn't get much info on it.

    Yup Custom Sport Truck
    Came with scrol type trim and seats, chrome besels, all the perrty stuff. The biggest difference is factory AC, the dash has forward vents in it for the AC. Non CST modles do not have thease forward vents in the dash.
    Basically just a bunch of Lipstick & Face paint /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    me too. the po said it had an ac but it was completely underdash???? i got the idea it was like a vintage air unit. unfortunatley he took it out and trashed it to mount a cb under the heater controls.

    a/c C60 was optional regardless of the deluxe appearance package it got

    a/c had nothing to do with Z84 CST lol

    C60 is factory ordered and installed dash vents style a/c system

    dealer installed underdash unit was not listed on RPO label and had no vents in the dash and was chopped into the truck with stock non a/c boxes and "non a/c rad support" holes were drilled through the rad support for the a/c condensor lines, etc. very rigged, is very easy to tell dealer from factory a/c, huge differences

    My first K5 was a 72 CST with no A/C. I thought the main difference was the body trim and interior rear side panels.
