Fast Facts:
  • Chevrolet and GMC use the “C” designation for 2WD trucks and the “K” designation for 4WD trucks. Chevrolet follows the letter with either a “10” (1/2 ton), “20” (3/4 ton), or “30” (1 ton). However, GMC trucks use 1500, 2500, or 3500 instead (respectively)
  • The two available body styles were Stepside or Fleetside. C20’s were only available with long beds (~8ft long) – only the C10 could be had with a short bed (6.5ft long). The term “stepside” refers to a cargo bed with inner “steps” fore and aft the rear wheel well, resulting in a “flared” look. It also meant the bed had no intrusions from either side wheel well
  • This 2nd generation Chevy truck represents the first time GM approached truck buyers the same way they did car buyers – by offering more creature comforts, extensive sound deadening, more color combinations, and chrome trim galore. Rear coil spring suspension replaced the less compliant leaf spring setup found in the previous generation. The customizability and comfort distinguish this generation the most from previous generation trucks
  • This is the first generation that could be optioned with Chevrolet’s 350ci small block V8, as well as the 396 big block from the Chevelle
  • After 1969 the 396 was bored .30 over to 402 cubic inches, but in order to avoid disrupting the 396 “branding” that hovered around the Chevelle, Chevrolet branded this engine as a “400ci” (RPO L47) to differentiate it for truck applications. This might not seem like a big deal, but it confused Chevrolet purists for decades!
Key Model Year Changes:
  • New “egg-crate” grille with a black stripe around the grille (easily distinguishes the ’71 model from the rest)
  • The Bowtie is now located in the center of the new grille (instead of the hood)
  • First year of standard disc brakes
  • Parking lights are now integrated in the bumper
  • The following year (1972) have the rearview mirror glued to the windshield. The black stripe around the grille disappears. Interior updates include revised door panels and an extra strengthening screw on the inside of the door below the vent window division bar
  • 1971 and 1972 models are generally grouped together in regards to model year changes. These years can be distinguished by the lack of a bowtie on the nose of the hood (the hood nose angle is steeper as well). These years also have an egg-crate grille with a bowtie (instead of the words “Chevrolet”)
