Rainbow Bright’s 1977 Chevy Scottsdale CK1

I believe Rainbow Bright had a car accessory, but I never knew about the full-sized truck.  That seems to be the inspiration behind the customization applied to this 1977 Chevrolet Scottsdale pickup,which sheds the macho image of most full-sized pickups.

Disregard the paint choices and this is a desirable 4×4 stepside with a 400 CID V8 and automatic.  Yeah, a manual would be more cool and unusual, but this isn’t exactly going to see track time.  This CK is the Scottsdale model, which means mid-level trim  (not the “luxury” Cheyenne trim).

The seller claims 85K original miles and the condition appears to support the claim.  Would you drive this?  Is there any chance this rainbow truck will get the rather high asking price?

Because framing the two-tone paint with rainbows wasn’t enough, this has Shelby-esque rainbow hood stripes, too.

Yes, the Chevrolet script on the rear is done in rainbow colors, too.  Note the dual exhaust and roll bar,too.

The bumper with front-mount spare is very butch.

Here’s another view of dat ass.

Interior appears to be in good shape.  This is a 4×4, as you can see the shifter for the transfer case, in addition to the column shift for the trans.  Note the monster truck-inspired USA-1 floor mats!  Finally,the badge confirms this is a “trailering special.”

Here’s the 400 (6.6 liter, if you must) V8.
