During the late 60's and early 70's, the major vehicle manufacturers determined it was time for trucks to stop looking so "trucky." One of the leaders in this movement was Chevrolet. It was not an easy task but now owners could be proud of their purchase and snappy looks and display it in the driveway. Trucks were functional, but now, they were also great looking on the exterior and a little fluffier in the interior to provide more comfort during chores, commuting, and even hard work.
On the RC side of things, the popularity of Scale and Monster Trucks sent JConcepts in search of the ultimate line of iconic trucks to fit a range of vehicles utilizing a 10.5 to 11.00" wheelbase, such as the Tamiya Clod Buster and Traxxas Stampede.
For the 1970, much of the style rests in the front grille and headlight package, as well as the rear tail gate and taillight section. These details are found on and included in the decal sheet, along with many emblems and trim packages to complete your body in several popular looks from that generation. A chiseled front-end is gently swept back from the center, and the molded in front bumper has a diamond plate like top. Fender wells are round, and a huge flare was added with raised edging, making them ideal for recreating several iconic Monster Trucks from the golden era.
A built-in hood scoop is in a great position to add any additional parts a user can think of such as predator carburetors or injector hat. The cab and windshield are a key styling point on this creation, and the "cap" look to the cab has the hard edge around the sides and visor-like appearance to the front. The bed styling features bodylines that make the Chevy look authentic, and a slight recess in back provides a setting for body mounts or other aftermarket accessories. The rear bumper is also molded into the design, giving the truck a solid look without bolt-on parts or additional pieces.
The 1967-1972 Chevrolet and GMC variants showed a lot of looks through the years . To reflect small changes to the grille, headlights, and trim packages, JConcepts has added an incredible 4 different grille options on the decal sheet, giving the user the option of their favorite package from yesteryear. Single headlight and double light bezel setups are included, which contain bar and tube grille combinations. In addition, a plethora of badges are offered on the sheet featuring Cheyenne, Custom, C/10, C/20, and CST/10 combinations.
