World's First Extended Cab Chevy, GMC Trucks
On the market with "the world's first" extended cab Chevy and GMC and 3/4 ton pickups beating even General Motors to the punch is Walker Chevrolet, Decatur, Tex.
Dianne Schafer, marketing manager for Walker, points out that many GM pickup owners want extra inside storage space in their trucks a feature GM doesn't yet have available.
At Walker, workers first extend the cab 16 in., shortening the truck bed. A preformed, double steel extension is then welded on to the cab, painted and the desired features added. Schafer notes that the truck frame isn't altered so the truck's warranty remains intact.
For the interior and exterior of the truck, there's a long list of options ranging from a basic interior to leather seats and color tv.
Schafer says the modifications are usually done on brand new pickups but can also be made on older models. The basic conversion costs about $4,600 and can be made on the Chevy Silverado, Scottsdale and Custom Deluxe; and the GMC Sierra, Sierra Grande, and Sierra Classic. The conversion can also be made on crew cabs.
