This freshly restored 1962 Chevrolet C10 half-ton pickup truck blends the classic look of the early 60s Chevrolet half-ton truck with a bevy of modern features. The odometer shows 247 miles, which is understood to be the miles since the restoration.
This truck was built at GMs Kansas City Leeds assembly plant (VIN code K) and is finished in House of Kolors Jet black overlain with clearcoat. The paint, trim, glass and lights are all in excellent shape, as expected.
The trucks bodywork is solid and straight, the battery appears new, the engine bay is extremely tidy, as is the new cargo bed with its dark brown wood floor with stainless-steel trim. It has a 127-inch wheelbase and a 5,000-pound gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Finally, the chrome front bumper shine brilliantly. This example has two-inch front drop spindles, new brakes, new fuel lines, new rear shock absorbers and new exhaust.
This C10 rolls on Nitto NT420 radials, size 305/40R22 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted on black Boss Motorsports alloy wheels. The wheels are in excellent order while the tires are in very good shape.
Under that hood is a 383 CID V-8 engine with chrome headers, a Champion radiator and an Oldsmobile air cleaner housing from the early to mid-1960s. Backing this motor is a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission and the original differential. Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes with discs in front.
Completing the interior is a Pioneer infotainment system with rectangular screen and Kenwood speakers.
Launched in the fall of 1959, the 1960 model year introduced a new body style of light pick-up truck that featured many firsts. Most important of these were a drop-center ladder frame, allowing the cab to sit lower and independent front suspension, giving an almost car-like ride in a truck. Also new for 1960 was a new designation system for trucks made by GM. Gone were the 3100, 3200, and 3600 designations for short -, long - and 3/4-ton models. Instead, a new scheme assigned a 10, 20 or 30 for -, - and 1-ton models. Since 1957, trucks were available from the factory as four-wheel drive and the new class scheme would make this known. A C (conventional) in front of the series number designates two-wheel rear drive while a K designates four-wheel drive.
Actual badging on Chevrolet trucks carried the series name system from the previous generation for 1960 and 1961: the 10, 20, 30 and 40 series (C and K) were badged as Apaches, 50 and 60 series trucks were badged as Vikings, and the largest 70 and 80 series models were marked Spartans. For 1960, C/K trucks were available in smooth Fleetside or fendered Stepside versions. GMC called these Wide-Side and Fenderside. Half-ton models were the C10 and K10 long-bed and short-bed trucks and the 3/4-ton C20 and K20, as well as the one-ton C30, were also available. GMC did not use the C nomenclature, though their 4x4 versions used the K nomenclature.
