1965 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup

Spotted this lovely mid 1960’s Chevy C/K series pickup truck street parked in a quiet neighborhood of Los Feliz. It appears that the truck has had some body work recently performed. Perhaps the next step is the paint! Regardless of paint, you cannot help but be drawn in by the sheet metal and the classic styling from General Motors in the 1960’s. Enjoy!

1960 Chevy C-10 Fleetside Pickup

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.
