History of the C10 Line of Trucks

The Chevrolet C10 is a line of pickup trucks manufactured by General Motors under its Chevrolet brand. The C10 first appeared in 1960 and continued through 1987, with various updates and changes made over the years.

The first generation of the C10, which lasted from 1960-1966, was characterized by a more rounded body style and a wider, more spacious cab than previous Chevy pickups. A variety of engines were available during this era, ranging from a 4.6-liter inline-six to a 5.7-liter V8.

In 1967, the C10 was given a facelift, with a more angular body style and a more powerful 6.5-liter V8. The second generation of the C10 lasted from 1973-1987, during which time the truck underwent a number of further changes and updates. Notably, in the mid-1970s, the C10 received a new square-body design that became a defining characteristic of the model.

Throughout its history, the C10 was available in a number of different trim levels and configurations, including stepside and fleetside beds, short and long wheelbases, and regular and crew cabs. It was also adapted for a variety of different uses, including as a work truck, a family vehicle, and even as a powerful muscle car.

Today, the C10 remains a popular choice among truck enthusiasts and collectors, with many being restored and modified to suit individual tastes and needs. Some of the most sought-after versions of the C10 include the Cheyenne and the Silverado, which were top-of-the-line trims with luxury features and powerful engines.
