1960 Chevrolet C20 Pickup

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.

1965 International Harvester D-Series Pickup Truck

Here is one that you don’t see everyday – A International D-Series pickup from what I’m guessing is 1965.  I tend to see the International Scouts much more often, but this is a first for me. The contrast between the paint job and the paint on the wheels is startling. Enjoy some pics of this now defunct light American truck company (they make big trucks now).

1985 JDM Nascar Toyota Pickup

I don’t know what is going on with this truck but I kind of like it.  It is a mash-up of many different styles, almost as if somebody pulled different modification choices from a hat. It’s a JDM Nascar pickup truck and I dig it’s uniqueness. Bravo to it’s indecisive owner.

1982 Chevrolet Silverado C10 Pickup

Hello.  Spotted recently around Los Angeles is this 1982 Chevy C10 pickup with a hard top cap.  This C/K truck still proudly displays it’s 4×4 badge is clearly on the fender. This one caught my eye because it appears to be in great condition – sporting a nice red paint job and even the chrome is still shining bright! Enjoy

1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup (CK Chassis)

Spotted another Chevy draped in blue on the same block as the 1969 Chevy Impala the other day.  By the looks of it, this Chevy C10 Pickup has been recently repainted and restored.  Even the chrome was in great shape! Almost look as if it came off the showroom floor.  And it has some of my favorite period wheels; the moonie style wheels! Enjoy

1973 Ford F-150 Pickup Truck

Hi there and I hope you all are having a great Sunday.  Today we spotted a well-used 1973 Ford F-150 Pickup truck.  This one has “been around the block” as the saying goes.

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?

Spotted this ragtag Ford F-Series Pickup truck around Echo Park in Los Angeles. Love these old Ford trucks – inspiring to see people driving these around some 50 + years later.

1967 Chevrolet C-10 Pickup Truck

Something must be said about the subdued nature of old work trucks.  It is in their utilitarian “blood” to be used, abused and receive snarling glances from passer-bys.  This C-10 Chevy is one of those examples.  Tattered and torn, this truck shows the tell-tale signs of age, use and probably a little neglect.  But as it is parked on the street, I assume that 327 under the hood still puts the ponies to the pavement.

1976 Toyota Pickup Truck

We’re sticking with the theme of Toyota pickups.  This one comes to us in a blazing orange glory from 1976.  Is it coincidental that all the small pickups of this time such as the Datsun 620 and the Ford Courier, were similar looking and offered this amazing orange paint option?  In matter of fact, all the colors they offered on these trucks were pretty rad.  Bring back more cool colors!

1982 Toyota 4×4 Pickup

Toyota Pickup trucks are a popular breed in Southern California.  As with many of the vehicles roaming LA streets, this Toyota enjoys sunny weather and no snow.  And unless you are close to the beach, that means no salt and no rust. This one is a clean example of Toyota’s iteration of the 4×4 pickup from the early 1980’s. It appears to be repainted and I wouldn’t doubt this has been restored very recently. I can’t really pinpoint this color –  any opinions?
