I'm not 100% sure, partly because I'm no Chevy expert, but I do remember seeing this particular pick-up in kit form, either it was this year model or within a year/2 of this models body style?
Cheers Cliff

This is available, 72 I believe, but looks similar enough & you can convert it?

That's a sweet 1:1! I miss my 80 Suburban:/ Theres a revell kit around 80's but its a GMC and 4x4. And you'll have to make the side trims. But it's pretty close enough to use as a base.

Quick Ebay search

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MPC-1978-CHEVY-STEPSIDE-PICK-UP-TRUCK-Model-Car-Kit-MINT-NIB-VINTAGE-/330983541438?

But the price is abit over the top I think. But probably as close as you're gonna get. I also think I saw one day a resin pick up bed that would work on ebay. I was a fleetside shortbox but Im not sure of the year.

You might need more than one kit to build it. Usually how it goes.
