I very much doubt you'll get a proper CAD file of a vehicle. The nearest thing I've found is 2D sketches in Upfitter information provided by manufacturers for companies building bodies on their truck chassis. 1994 is a bit too far back, but this GM site goes back to 1999 which may be the same body - as I'm a European, that's more knowledge than I have.

I just googled Sketchup S10. You'll have to figure out which one of many is right for you.

if you can get the upfitter drawing from .pdf there is a program called 'back to cad' which will convert a .pdf to cad format (.dwg/.dxf). I have used it plenty and although the results are a bit skewed and need scaling it does give you something quick to start with as a last resort.
