The Chevrolet C10 was a revelation when it first hit the market in 1960. Introduced as a successor to the Task Force, the C10 offered a far more comfortable ride thanks to its drop-ladder center frame, which allowed the cab to sit lower, and cushy independent front suspension.
The second-generation C10 built on the success of its predecessor with rear coil springs rather than leaf springs, a thicker roof for increased rigidity and metal fender skirts.
Those small changes, among other minor improvements, helped create one of the most beloved C10s. Now, the folks at Hagerty have cooked up a quick 6-minute buyers guide for those searching for an unmolested example.
Executive Editor Stefan Lombard uses a pristine 1968 Chevrolet C10, the second year of the Gen 2’s five-year life span, to showcase exactly what to look for when hunting for the perfect slab of second-generation C10.
These guys have seen countless C10s filter through the Hagerty auction house over the years so they know all the potential sore spots and areas you need to examine before you hand over the check.
Buckle up and prepare to learn all you need to know about the second-gen Chevrolet C10 below.
