Hi from 1973 Chevy Explorer owner
« on: February 10, 2012, 10:24 AM »
Hello everyone, nice to find others with an interest in keeping the nostalgia in life alive. I have a 1973 chevrolet explorer, owners manual and all, that I cannot find info or pics of any kind on the internet. I have been searching for the past 5 years and have yet to see another pic or info on one. It is almost identical to to dodge class a's of the same era of which there are many. I will post pics if anyone is interested in seeing it. Thanks for an info or reference...

That's it, the one in the top pic. Thanks guys, I'm wanting to get as much original info as possible so I can try and keep or redo to stay as near to that as possible.

Hey bro,

One of the many benefits of your Full Membership is one that is greatly overlooked but can be a very valuable resource...  If you go to the "Our Members" tab, you'll see a tab to "search members".  In the search for field, enter "Explorer". 

You'll see a couple rows of check boxes.  The first two are already check marked.  You can uncheck them, if you like, and check mark the box next to "Model".  This will bring up all the Explorer owners in the group.  You can click on any of their usernames and send them a PM to see what they may have which could be helpful.  You can also jot down each of the usernames and put them in the "to" line of your PM and send the message to all of them at once!

Thanks Kev, posted a couple in the album section. Have to clean the inside up and put a few things away from the last camping/fishing trip a few weeks ago and I will get some of the interior.
