Re: Overland's V6 Pentastar Engine?

Who need a Hemi?


For 1975, the 185*hp 400*cu*in (6.6*L) small-block V8 was added to the line and there was a realignment of Chevy trim levels, along with new grilles, clear/white instead of orange front turn signals. Base models gained a passenger-side woodgrain dash accent and a new plaid upholstery pattern (which would change slightly each year until 1978).
1976 brought a new gauge to show voltage, it replaced the ammeter. And the engine size decals were removed from the grille during this model year.

All C/K models would ride on independent front suspension. Three trim levels were available: Cheyenne, Scottsdale, and Silverado.
