Default Custom suburban Trim

I'm at the Emerald Coast Cruise-In all week at Panama City Beach Florida. I found Suburban that has several trim pieces that I was unsure of. The front fenders have Chrome bullet turn indicators and the upper body has chrome trim with Custom on it. I'm not too familiar with the burbs as I am with the trucks. Is this trim rare?

Turn indicators anywhere other than in the hood where they are on all models are incorrect add-ons that were popular in the 60' and 70's and the Custom script side moulding you see here is Chevrolet-specific. GMC Custom Suburbans had trim encircling the entire length of side windows and door windows, and the familiar GMC "Custom" pot metal badges like the pickups behind the door.

I thought so, but was unsure, his interior is very well done and looks Correct with the seat pattern.
