    One model I keep a casual eye out for is the Kidco / Universal Chevy pickup. As far as I can tell the base model began with Kidco, so to my way of thinking it is a Kidco model. The Camper is only one variant, there are others. There is a plain stepside pickup, another has stake sides added, and yet another has a huge wing in back, all on the same base model.

    After Kidco closed, this model continued under various Universal brands and trade names in various guises. *Usually* Kidco marked the base of their models, and Universal as a rule does not (on some models there is a "U" within a circle, about as close to marking the base as Universal gets). My brown variants (I have two) do not have the Kidco name on the base, so my presumption pending more convincing proof is that these were issued under one or another of the Universal brands or trade names.
    The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

    Thank you for your understanding.

    One of my favorite castings, I think they did a good job on the grill of this casting

      Except for the headlights I agree.

          I need to find one someday with a complete sticker on the camper shell, although I do have a 4x4 version, while loose it appears unplayed with, and doesn't seem it ever came with the stickers. Not sure if the 4x4 raised chassis (made in Macao) is an earlier or later release or if both were used during the same period. My guess is later.
