Re: SPID Picture thread?

here's an oddball for ya... A Z84 Cheyenne Super?? Never saw that before! (A Z84 is a Cheyenne (or CST) and a Super is a YE9, normally). Maybe they do stuff different up in Oshawa. For what it's worth, the truck was indeed a Cheyenne - the only "super"-ism was in the name of the RPO, which was clearly incorrect. I do believe it was original - this was a truck I was looking at a while back.

Its not unknown and being Custom Deluxe makes it even more likely than say a Cheyenne or a Super.

That's the second one I've seen with Turbo Hydra-Matic misspelled, mine being the other one- a "U" instead of an "I" in the last word.

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Typical Western Canadian farm truck. 250 six cylinder, gauges with a
Turbo 400 and the optional wood floor box. Not too sure about the J63
brake shield option with drum brakes. Sorry about the poor picture quality.

Re: SPID Picture thread?

This is a great resource and I can understand not wanting to post a VIN. However if at all possible, those that do edit their pictures or cut off the top, it would be really appreciated if you would state the plant and model year. Chevy examples would be 2Z,1S or 9A. It helps me to track changes between years and plants.

SS Tim, I posted one that's on page 6, it's post #148. I was wondering what the "Georgia Power Company" was? Did other utility companies have there own codes?

Just as an example of my last post. Of the 1970 Freemont 0Z SPIDs I have data from several show it. Roughly between 125800 and 167800 are the only examples showing it though. Sounds like a code or printer problem. If yours (and anyone else's) is outside that range I'd be interested in adding data points.

To answer your question yes. It is not uncommon to see a fleet order option truck to have a user named build code. Being as they are fleet option they do no conform to the RPO standard uniform production codes or groups. Without a little documentation it is impossible to say what these three specific option codes represented. However they were different from each other as denoted by the last letter change of the exception code suffix.
Could very well be that the AA code is for special paint though.

Your truck was probably rated at 14k as it has the Z51 rating plate (build sheet code) and not the lighter 10K plate found on R05 chassis cabs. But like you say it does not show a supporting tire RPO or the H22 axle required for the bump. Does it have the HO110 axle with ten lug rear and five lug fronts?

Re: SPID Picture thread?

It has the HO72 rear and and eight lug all around. The truck also has 18 in wheels which aren't listed. But it has the 18in spare listed.

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Then it was a 10K truck. The spare and carrier were options on chassis cabs with R05. It has the R05 included maker lamps though? If you look up the load chart in the drivers handbook you will see it requires the H22 option for the 14K capacity. Looks like the load plate was a missbuild. Have seen a few pickups with the incorrect 10K plate vs the correct 9K too. As unlikely as it is does your truck have a build sheet or Protect-O-Plate?

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Yea the misbuild makes sense, that gvw chart always is what got me. I wish I had the protecto plate or build sheet although I thought the never put them in the trucks, but I don't know every thing. I'm still confused as way they didn't list the 18in wheels as an option unless that was a misbuild to.

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Well strange things happen. The 18" tire were a dual only size and that spare wheel RPO is not on my list. "...that gvw chart always is what got me." is there something I can help with?

Re: SPID Picture thread?

No I'm all good With the info you gave. The chart confused me because it said I need the 11000lb axle for the 14000lb gvw plate. But I didn't have that axle.

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Re: SPID Picture thread?

Don't know what to say 7.00x18 8 ply tires were one of six dual only sizes in 67. They were RPO code R90. The Q31 code (found it...) was for a bare wheel only as was the custom.
