    I'm just looking through the photo Gallery, and Im seeing different types of K5's, you've got your regular K5, but then you see the cheyennes, the silverados, the scottsdales, and I have a Sierra Classic, but the thing is... I dont know what all of these mean. Whats the difference in all the different names? I sit a trim package? I would like to know. Thanks

    Has anyone started a list of the differences in these? Also is anone working on something showing the visual difference in the different years? I know most of the major body changes, ie body changes and a couple of the grills. I saw a Jimmy the other day w/ round headlights and I really liked the whole front grille but have no idea what year it is form.

    differences

    sounds like a good project for one of our local brainiacs. anyone sharp enough on the subtle changes between years, models, and packages? i'm kinda interested, my blazer seems to have some stuff others don't have.
    except that damn clock...

    Curious, Like what?
    Clocks were an upgrade option on the guage panel. Most all Silverados had them. Not saying all, because someone will NOT have one if I say it.

    Pick up an LMC catalog, it makes a good reference for a lot of the grill and trim changes over the years. www.lmctruck.com

    My 82 K5 is a Silverado and doesn't have a clock in the dash or anything else for that matter. No tilt, no power windows, no power locks, no sliding rear windows, etc.....

    A good place to start is by clicking on specifications above. I'm sure one of the book stores online has a book on Chevy trucks and the differences.

    Re: differences

    I've got a Silverado (88) but no clock. So there [​IMG]

    I do have power windows, locks, cruise, tilt, window tint, air-cond, am/fm/cass. If you look at www.kbb.com you can see what they have as factory options for your year (not to say they are right...but a guide anyway)

    At the KBB.com (Kelly Blue Book) site I found a $75 difference in selecting the Silverado option vs. not selecting it, all else equal. Must have been that shiney chrome wheel trim that I hate...

    My ' 77 Jimmy has the clock, along with tilt steering, A/C. It doesn't have a tach, which I wish it did. It has the monster size fuel guage next to the speedo. It's also got a huge center console/storage area between the bucket seats.

    Re: differences

    You are correct. Mainly a Silverado is a trim package. Chrome trim around tailight, parking lights, wheel wells, , windshield and back glass molding, body moulding.

    All the other stuff could be had on a Custom Deluxe. Pwr window, locks, tilt etc.
