The first “C/K” pickups of 1960-66 from Chevrolet and their GMC-branded counterparts marked a new era at General Motors and ushered in the light-pickup segment’s first independent front suspension. Building on their success, which included record sales levels, the new “Glamour Series” of 1967-72 continued to lead the American light-truck market with excellent engineering, greater passenger comfort and cleanly styled, highly attractive body designs.

Boasting a car-like ride with coil springs front and rear on the ½- and ¾-ton two-wheel drive models, these trucks featured a wide range of powertrain options including available four-wheel drive. Ride and overall height were even lower than before, while maintaining a useful ground clearance. Of course, these exceptionally stylish pickups have been coveted and enjoyed from new and, in particular, they provide an exceptional canvas for customizing – a trend that continues uninterrupted today.

Featuring an unmodified “short box” body with the exception of added rear-wheel tubs, this 1968 Chevrolet C10 custom pickup truck is a striking example of a customized Chevy C10 pickup. Built to perform, it is powered by a high-performance Chevrolet small-block V-8 engine equipped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor atop a Weiand aluminum intake manifold, plus an Edelbrock open-element air cleaner. A set of tubular exhaust headers sends the spent combustion gases to a dual exhaust system. Power is sent to the road by a three-speed automatic transmission controlled by a B & M floor shifter. Supporting features include twin electric cooling fans, an aluminum fuel cell located in the cargo bed, and a dual-circuit brake master cylinder with power assist. Finished in eye-catching light green paint over black upholstery with upgraded pattern, this excellent 1969 Chevrolet C10 custom pickup also features a Grant aftermarket steering wheel and rides on Weld Racing wheels mounting a “big and little” combination of Dunlop tires up front and Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires at the rear. Offering choice high-performance features with an essentially unmodified Chevy C10 body, this 1968 Chevrolet C10 Custom Pickup is ready to show and enjoy with equal enjoyment.
