Postby Ruckin69 » Sat Nov 24, 2018 7:59 am

What is the difference as I see emblems that say both for 73-78. Thanks

I honestly don't have any idea. I am familiar with the "Crew Cab" emblems, but I don't believe I have ever seen a "Crew Cab Special" emblem.

I've seen the badges and I remember this being a discussion on here before but I don't think anyone ever knew what a Crew Cab Special really was.

Just saw this post. The emblems do exist but I have never seen on a truck. I thought I'd ask the experts.

I don't think I have a good picture of them, but the 77 I'm currently building has the Special badges. The 74 that I had built a few years ago and just sold just had the plain CrewCab badge.

Like most people, I have ZERO idea what the difference is and have not seen anything in sales literature or anything that mentions or even gives a clue as to what the difference is.

I'll try and remember to get a picture of my fenders with the badge when I'm at the shop.

From what I read, no one knows. I believe it is just that some years had different emblems than other years. I don't really think there were "extra special" crewcabs that got the unique emblems. Mine doesn't have any emblems, but it has been painted at least once.
