The Squarebody Chevy and GMC trucks have seriously been climbing; both in value, as well as in general interest from hot-rodders and restoration buffs. With timeless styling, the ability to fit anything from a 6-banger to an LS, to a big-block powerhouse under the hood, it’s no wonder.
They’ve cranked out tons of these things between 1973-1991, but over the course of that timeframe, some subtle styling changes had happened. In the case of the ’83-91 GMC, the front grille went though a few different iterations, with the GMC emblem itself being updated in 1983, and remaining in production through the 1991 model year.
More recently, the OEM replacement parts supply for these trucks have dried up, but Classic Industries have just announced a new replacement.
