Spotted this Chevy C10 pickup street parked in a quiet neighborhood. The first generation C10 had a mid cycle update during 1963/1964. It is easy to distinguish between the earlier and the later 1st generation C10’s by the windshield. This first generation C10 has a windshield that wraps around and slants towards the rear. The later half of this generation has a windshield that does not wrap around as much, and finishes with a slant towards the front. Take a look at this 1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup we spotted a few months ago to look at the subtle difference. Enjoy
Spotted this 1960 Chevy C20 pickup after the rain subsided. I have a particular distaste to the styling of the 1960-1961 Chevy C/K trucks. Mostly, it’s the turn signals and embellishment around them that kills it for me. The rest of the truck is fine, but I can’t support those nostrils on the front end. This is just an opinion and and here at LACS, we accept all cars as equal… no matter how ugly they are. Enjoy.

Spotted another Chevy pickup truck, very similar to the Apache we featured not long ago. This one has been nicely restored with fresh paint and a healthy dose of lowering. I have read that these C/K pickups from 1960 were also called “Apache” but I’m unsure. Instead of the term “fleetside”, to indicate a flat bedside, Chevrolet used the term “wide-side” to indicate the same thing to buyers, according to Wikipedia. I like this and I’ve always been intrigued by classic pickup trucks. However, I don’t think I could daily drive one. Would you buy an old truck?

This… this is LA Car Spotting. Rust, faded paint, mismatched panels, dings dents and a lot of character. Why is this the epitome of the ethos of LA Car Spotting? We capture vehicles that are found on the street – most of the time, these vehicles are daily driven. These are not garaged vehicles to be displayed at a museum or pampered by their owners. A vehicle like this 1973 3rd-gen Chevy C/K truck does what it’s suppose to do – be driven. Enjoy.
Some info via Wiki:
An all-new clean sheet redesign of General Motors’ Chevrolet and GMC brand C/K-Series pickups débuted in mid-1972 for the 1973 model year. Development of the new third-generation trucks began in 1968 with vehicle components undergoing simulated testing on computers before the first prototype pickups were even built for real world testing. The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. Aside from being near twins, the Chevrolet and GMC pickups looked like nothing else on the road. The third-generation trucks are colloquially known as the “Square-body” or “Box-body” generation.
