There should be another string of characters on the frame that has both numbers and letters.

This is for the pickups, but should be enough for you to identify the year with the correct number.

OK here goes. this is for the 73-80 frame
The first ----- letter will be C for Chevrolet or T for GMC.
The second---- C for 2 wheel drive or K for 4 wheel drive.
The third is the engine description .
The fourth is Series for Chevy 1=10, 2=20, 3=30 For GMC 1=15, 2=25, 3=35
The fifth is body type 4 = PICK UP
The sixth is Year. 3=73, 4=74, 5=75, 6=76, 7=77, 8=78, 9=79, A=80.





OK here goes. this is for the 81-87 frame
The first ----- number will be 1 or 2 1 = United States 2= Canada
The second ----- letter's will be GC for Chevrolet or GT for GMC.
The third---- will be a Letter B to H = IE. B,C,D,E,F,G,H . GVW Range & Brake System The First 3100-4000 up to 9001-10000
The fourth---- will be a Letter C,K,R,V. 2 Wheel drive 1981-86, 4 Wheel drive 1981-86, 2 Wheel drive 1987-89, 4 Wheel drive 1987-89,

The fifth -----is going to be 1, or 2, or 3 1= 1/2 Ton, 2= 3/4 Ton, 3= 1 Ton.
The sixth ----- Number is going to be 3 or 4 = 4 Door Cab \ 2 Door Cab
The eight is the YR B=1981 - K=1989
