Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Nice Find! Have to say that is the only Black/White with Blue plaid Highlander I know of. Promo Package YG8, BBC and a wood bed too. What are you plans?

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Not sure yet. I was thinking of putting the body on an original 1972 K10 SWB that I am doing for the wife. The body for that truck is in need for many repairs. I was going to leave the patina since it is going to be a driver. But I am kind of torn on what to do.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Yes, that is VERY nice. Beautiful combo. Personally, I hope you resto it, it's definitely worth it with that original color combo. Black/white trucks are uncommon already, but with blue highlander and yg8 - awesome.

Good looking truck. Wouldn't take much to have that looking like a new stocker. A Promo Package (YG8 here) included the upper bodyside molding giving a distinctive look. While the option sheet is fairly typical for a YG8, the K43 poly wrapped air cleaner is a standout. Plus you have not only have HD rear coils but the auxiliary leaf springs too!

Thanks, Tim! Had it a little over 2 years and now I'm having a little bit of $ to put back into it. I think I've decided to go back to stock! I'm trying to figure out which 350 V8 it has in it?

Love the Custom Camper nameplates for some reason...

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Just worked out a deal with my father in law to get this from him. He bought about 10 years ago from the original owner. He's always told me it was a special north west dealer packag and that it had all the options. Never thought about it much, because I knew there were certain options it didn't have. I started looking for a source to get the seats fixed and stumbled upon this. It's interesting with the camper options and the aux fuel tanks and being a C package. Let me know what you think.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

VERY nice. Welcome. It's not a Northwest thing - but it is a combo package thing. The YG8 is the Highlander Package C (includes all the A and B package stuff and a few additional items), for a bundled savings package price. Great color combo and a nice long RPO list on the SPID. Can't wait for more pics. I'd say you married well...

Btw - camper stuff is completely independent of the package stuff. Note it has the camper wiring, but not the nameplate (Z81) or the camper mirrors. Below Eyeline mirrors were normally part of the Highlander theme and yours has them.

Sorry for the duplicate post. Trying to do this from a mobile device is driving me crazy right now.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

That is a very nice well equipped truck with the YG8 Highlander promo package and all the other practical options. You have nice one and will be great once you start using it.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Once I haul it down I will take some better pics. The only thing it is missing are the stock wheels and hubcaps along with the original AM radio.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Here's some motivation for you (1st pic is a custom camper in hugger (yours is tangier orange), but, about the same as your truck): 2nd pic is hugger also, but it's so nice, I had to share! 3rd pic is same as your interior exactly. Last pic lets you know what came along with the highlander packages for ref. All are listed on your SPID also. (note that the brochure shows the main color lines running sideways rather than vertically - a topic of discussion on here many times. Factory did them vertically).

What exactly is the question? There was only one 350 offered in a 72 C/10, the LS9 and in your case suffix coded TJD.

Not a bad looking C10 Highlander factory 350/3-speed (3OTT) with A/C that has a T-5(?) conversion.

Nice looking truck and Orange too! Jocko pretty much covered things. But to amplify, the truck has a nationally offered bundled savings Highlander Promo Package. One of the bundled items were the DG4 below eyeline mirrors found on PP pickups and suburbans. Of note is yours have the once common extenders to get the heads a little further out.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Clarifying question for the the other Highlander-heads out there. What color is the metal atop the dash between the pad and the windshield on non-orange trucks? With a black dash pad I'd expect the metal is painted black to match but I cannot confidently see this part of the dash on the attached pics - some appear not black. Orange trucks will have a black metal dash. Thanks.

Re: Do you have a 1972 Plaid Pickup?

Every original truck I have seen has had a flat black forward dash panel and black defroster vents as would be expected in keeping with convention for a black dash pad. The forward dash is keyed to the dash pad color and not the body color.

If you have specific posted pictures in question please post links.
