Random Car Wednesday: 1966 Chevrolet C-10
Pickup trucks are typically viewed as utilitarian vehicles. They appeal to farmers or construction workers, or really anybody who requires a vehicle that can take a lot of abuse and move objects of varying shape, size and quantity. However, classic pickups are becoming more collectible, and are popular vehicles to modify or restore. Many are still being used as dependable workhorses, but others, such as today's RCW, are well-cared-for show cars. This particular pickup is a 1966 Chevrolet C-10. It has the Fleetside bed as opposed to the iconic Stepside design, and is looking very sharp in a lovely shade of red. There are no badges to indicate what engine this Chevy has, but this generation of C-10 was offered with a slew of inline-6 motors, as well as one V6 and a pair of V8s. 1966 was the last year for this bodystyle, which had been introduced in 1960. This is a very clean and attractive pickup, and looks very capable of being a daily driver. I hope to see more trucks of this era included in car shows. They certainly deserve some recognition.
