LIGHT DUTY TRUCK CHARACTERISTICS, HISTORICAL DATA BASE

The report is a collection of data concerning physical, operating, performance, and market characteristics of light duty trucks for the model years 1972 and 1975 thru 1977. The data is stored on tape in DOT/TSC DEC System 10 computer system. Information was collected from published and unpublished sources with extrapolation and correlations being made when raw data was not available. Vehicles are reported by model year and grouped by manufacturer using production volume, model, body type, engine displacement, transmission and GVWR class attributes as criteria to select representative vehicle configurations. Characteristics are documented for vehicles representative of total U.S. sales of domestic and imported light duty trucks for the model years indicated.
