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 Fleetside (shown here) or Stepside. Long beds are 8ft long, and short beds are 6.5ft long
  • This 2nd generation 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 on 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
  • In 1969 the 396 was bored .30 over to roughly 400 cubic inches, but Chevrolet kept this quiet as they didn’t want to disrupt the 396 “branding” that hovered around the Chevelle. In truck applications, this same engine was labeled as a 400ci (RPO L47). This might not seem like a big deal, but it confused Chevrolet purists for decades, as they could not find any differences between the two engines
  • The “Highlander” was a promotional trim offered in 3 different levels: A, B, and C. What distinguished the Highlander the most from other trucks was the seating, which featured Scottish plaid nylon cloth seat inserts. The packages were mostly cosmetic, with the most expensive “C” package (shown here) giving you air conditioning and Soft-Ray tinted windows
Key Model Year Changes:
  • Final year of the ’67-’72 body style (2nd gen)
  • There is no longer a black stripe around the grille
  • Rearview mirror is now glued to the windshield
  • Revised door panel design
  • Additional reinforcement screw inside the door below the vent window bar
  • “Gross” horsepower is no longer quoted in the brochure. HP and torque ratings are down slightly (15hp/20ft lbs)
  • 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”
