History

The 1969 Chevrolet C10 is part of the C/K series of trucks that were manufactured by General Motors for over four decades. The C/K line, which included vehicles marketed under the Chevrolet and GMC brands, was comprised of pickup trucks, chassis-cab trucks, medium-duty trucks, and full-size SUVs. The C/K series was a direct competitor to the Ford F-Series and Dodge Ram pickup trucks.

The “C” in the name referred to two-wheel drive models, while “K” designated four-wheel drive models. The C/K series underwent four generations, with the second-generation known as the “Action Line” and the third-generation as the “Rounded Line.” The fourth generation saw GMC adopt the Sierra nameplate, while the C/K nameplate continued as an internal model code.

General Motors Brazil produced versions of the C/K series for South America from 1964 to 2001, including models for Brazil, Argentina, and Chile. The second-generation C/K, introduced in 1967, underwent several changes and improvements, with a redesigned body and new features that made it suitable for both work and personal use.

Throughout its production, the C/K series underwent changes to its drivetrain, including the addition of a large-block V8 engine in 1968. After 1969, GM switched to using only Chevrolet-produced engines for C/K pickup trucks. At Texoma Classics, we have experience restoring and maintaining classic trucks like the Chevrolet C10, ensuring that these vehicles remain roadworthy and beautiful for years to come.
