YAK Car Pic of the Day

You’ve gotta love the simplicity of this 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne 10 pickup, seen last summer with a For Sale sign in the window in Wilson. Simple maybe when compared to today’s behemoths, but you practically needed a scorecard to keep the many variations straight: three different wheelbases (115, 127, and 153); two different bed styles (Stepside — and, as seen here, Fleetside); four bed lengths (6-1/2 ft., 8-ft., and 8-1/2 ft. Fleetsides; 6-1/2 ft., 8-ft., and 9-ft. Stepsides); three weight classes (10 – 1/2 ton, 20 – 3/4 ton, and 30 – 1 ton); four series (Custom, Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne, and the new-for-’72 swanky Cheyenne Super); and two or four wheel drive. Imagine being a salesman and having to keep that straight!
