Many Chevrolet aficionados feel this is the most attractive Chevrolet Pickup Truck of all time. They're just beautiful...not too overdone, but with enough curves to soften the hard square lines. The base 1/2-ton Chevy pickup in '71 was named the Custom, which should have meant that a team of pinstripe and airbrush artists gave each one unique custom touches after it rolled off the lineā€¦ but in practice was just marketing magic.
