    its a crew cab, they have a bench seat in the front and the back so you can fit 6 people (3+3=6) /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    3+3 is what they called some of the crew cabs. An extended cab never existed from the factory so someone probably put it on when they had a custom extended cab built.

    3 people in the front seat 3 people in the back seat= 3+3 crew cab

    oh, ok. yeah it's a crew cab then, not extended. Excellent shape for a 76 if anyone would be interested, but the sign said $3k so a bit expensive. I wasn't shopping, just spotted it last week in a parking lot here in Nor Cal.

    76 probably didn't have a D60 front so interest will be low.

    It's a retarded way of saying how the seating in the vehicle is. IE: 3 on front bench seat plus 3 on rear bench seat.

    It originally started in the olden days when they said 2+2 which meant that there were 4 bucket seats in a car. Then manufacturers put them on their vans and trucks. Now it can mean anything.

    3+2 3+3+2 3+2+3 blah blah blah. Only the monkey who put it on the vehicle knows whether it is a bench, a bucket, or a captain's chair.
