Cool old commercial of Chevy Cheyenne pulling 187 tons of wood.

The comments at the bottom of the video are funnier than the video itself.

Going downhill ?

Use the same gear going down as you would going up.

That's why trailers have brakes.

I had a new Chevy Scottsdale 1/2 ton in 1978. GM had camshaft problems back in the day, and I had to replace mine just out of warranty. It had rust through in the rocker panels and fender wells after only 5 years. I had a cheap paint job done, and sold it in 1984. Worst vehicle I have ever owned and the 3504V barely had enough power to get out of it's own way. GM lost a class action lawsuit for knowingly installing defective camshafts in their 350 engines [camshafts were soft and wore prematurely] but my truck was long gone when a settlement was reached.

I would have to agree with gman. These were terrible years for some trucks.

With 187 tons behind a Chevy PU? I doubt it will help do much engine braking.

I thought of that right after I posted it.

However, the "same gear up and down" has to be good truck driving advice {at least} some of the time as a trucker told it to me.

Maybe it was the camera angle, but it shore looked like it was on a small slope to me.

Those were good looking trucks with good looking paint schemes. I wish they would bring paint like that back - I'm getting tired of metallics.

Also love the soundtrack!

It is good advise for people towing loads up to the recommended rating of the vehicle. In this case all bets are off.

Quite the opposite really. As simple as those old trucks were, they sure had their share of things going wrong before hitting 100K.
Sure they were simple and any moron could fix them, but you could count on the alternator, water pump, starter, electronic ignition module, half a dozen leaking gaskets... to go bad.
