Vintage Motorcars would like to present this beautiful, complete frame off restoration, Big Window, 1966 Chevrolet C-10.
Aircraft-inspired “nacelles” graced the hood of the attractively restyled 1960 Chevrolet C10, which now relied on independent front suspension (the pickup market's first) sprung by torsion bars instead of coils. Coil springs brought up the rear in place of the leafs installed prior to 1960. Conventional coils replaced the torsion bars up front in 1963, allowing the frame's reinforcing x-member, in place since 1960, to be deleted.
The 1960 model year was the first in which Chevy pickups featured a full-width pickup box as standard equipment. Styling is a hit or miss affair for the earlier years (1960-62), with wrap-around windshields and their unique hoods that are all but impossible to find as replacements. GM discontinued this difficult-to-stamp component for the 1963 model year, even for collision replacement parts, so it’s not unusual to find earlier trucks with the later 1963-66 hoods. Those later years saw styling that was more mainstream looking, and those are generally most sought-out by collectors. Externally, only the trim shuffle games prevalent in Detroit at the time differentiate 1964 through 1966s.
Styling updates included a switch back to dual headlights in 1962. The basic body carried over through 1966 but was graced with restyled roof posts in 1964, giving the cab a more rakish appearance.
New model designations debuted for 1960, with the former 3100-series half-ton tag traded for a “C10” identification, the “C” being short for “conventional,” or two-wheel-drive. The “K” prefix continued to signify the presence of a four-wheel-drive pickup.
The frame off restoration has made the exterior and interior both in top condition. Even more impressive than the body is the freshly rebuilt Turbo 350 automatic with 4 bolt mains and hardened valves that make this truck drive like a dream and start without any hesitation. This truck has all new factory brakes, new lowering shocks, all new dual exhaust, new custom roll pan, new floor bed, new glass, new coil springs (2” front, 4” rear), and new CPP Power Steering.
