base trim trucks

Recommended Posts

I threw together this collage to show a long-running & widespread practice for a number of decades.

You have your Chevys, Fords, Dodges, Internationals, Studebakers & Jeeps commonly doing the same thing on multiple truck lines : painting grilles (and sometimes also bumpers & headlight bezels) white versus the higher trim's chrome pieces. Looking back, it's interesting to me that it was pretty much universal.

White is usually the cheapest paint, but in my opinion; it looks a lot better than unpainted black plastic. Wonder how a 'stripper' trim modern truck would look done up in a similar manner?

Well, with Chevy you could get a WT regular cab in any other color, and put in a white grille from the Custom model, then paint your bumpers, mirror caps and roof white.  Dodge has the same possibility (white Express grille...) hmmm... and I guess Ford does too (white STX grille, etc.)


I have no photoshopping skeels though, so I can only visualize it in my head.
