    What is special about the CST that it gets so much more $? What options does the CST add and why was it dropped as a trim in 73?

    It's the high end trim line, which was renamed Cheyenne for '73.

    Sorry to nitpick, but the C/K10-30 pickups used CST from 67-70 only. In '71 their "top of the line" packages were the Cheyenne and Cheyenne Super.

    But GM, in their infinite wisdom, kept the CST moniker on the K5 blazers for '71 and '72, and switched to whatever in '73 (not as familiar with the new stuff).

    What is the custom deluxe? I thought this was the top trim.

    Oooh, forgot about pickups. Interesting: my '74 PU is a Cheyenne Super... I knew that the 'Super' was a PU-only thing, but didn't think about earlier years.

    As I recall, Custom Deluxe was the lowest trim... but I may be wrong.

    Well, depends on years ... in the 90's, IIRC, Cheyenne was the low-end. GM does this just to mess with me, I'm convinced.
