1975 Chevy Pickup

To those who remember it clearly, the year 1975 wasn’t so long ago. In perspective, however, it was long ago enough to necessitate an entire aftermarket of replacement sheet metal parts for pickup trucks of the era. And in fact, the salvaging of the Jennings family 4x4 was eased to some degree by the aforementioned aftermarket.

 

This 1975 Chevrolet, long-bed, half-ton, 4x4 was purchased new in St. Charles, Missouri by its current and original owner; Eldon Jennings. After the Jennings family’s move to Southern California in 1978, the pickup continued to function as a typical-for-the-times workhorse. As an active scout leader, Mr. Jennings used this truck for numerous desert trips throughout its years of duty. Through it all, the ol’ truck has earned its keep as a mechanical member of the Jennings family.
