Instead it seems he wrote "CHIV" in the Make section and "COST" in the Model section. My vehicle is a 1975 Ford F-100
No. You can set it for trial. If he shows up and you still want to proceed to trial (you might risk your traffic school eligibility) you can challenge the officer's credibility based on his mistakes that he wrote on the ticket. However, it will be up to the judge whether that is enough to find you not guilty or not. Wrong descriptions by themselves are not enough to get an automatic dismissal.
I don't think those two discrepancies will be enough, but if he also wrote the wrong license plate number and/or VIN ... you might be in business.
No it is not the charging instrument its merely a notice to appear in Court.
