A host of trim packages emerged during this generation, and serve as rolling proof that some truck buyers indeed preferred their pickups to play as well as work. Six different trim packages were offered on the 1984 Chevy K20. New features on the 1984 K20 included a redesigned front end and some minor body improvements. It received a new bi-level grill, and galvanized steel door panels served as a new rust-fighting feature. The gasoline engines available on the 1984 Chevy K20 included a 4. Power assist was optional for the C10 half-ton, but standard for the heavier pickups.
Coil springs remained at all four corners beneath the restyled 1967 Chevy C10, but a crisp, clean pickup appeared on the outside, and in some opinions the new Chevy looked even more modern than its half-ton Ford rival, which was also updated that year. . The 1971 and 1972 Chevy pickups tend to be the most popular, with a shared large egg crate grille and further refinements such as front disc brakes. The 1969 and 1970 C10 and K10 models look for all the world alike without knowledge of the various trim levels. Transmission options for the Chevy K20 consisted of a three-speed manual, a four-speed manual, a four-speed manual with overdrive, a three-speed automatic and a four-speed automatic.
Furthermore production numbers were large and they were home to several of the same engines used in popular Chevy cars, meaning maintenance, restoration, and upgrades are all relatively easy endeavors. Today, this generation of Chevrolet C10 and K10 are some of the most loved collector trucks extant, and for good reason. When they were new working trucks, the steel floors tended to be more popular, but today a wood bed truck brings a premium in the market. The Cheyenne Super trim had added body moldings, a chrome tailgate handle and chrome wheel-well trim. The K20 also had two diesel engine options: a 6. The Scottsdale had all the features of the Custom Deluxe plus chrome bumpers, hub caps, and windshield and rear-window trim.
All Chevy pickups were treated to standard front disc brakes in 1971. The Silverado had all the Cheyenne features with added body moldings and trim, plus full-gauge instrumentation. Custom, the base model trim, included white-painted bumpers and mirrors, standard painted hubcaps and no taillight or tailgate moldings. They are drop-dead gorgeous, have timeless styling, possess good build quality, and are easily drivable in modern traffic. Bucket seats were also available. With the 1984 model year came several changes to the Chevy K20's body.
All years of this generation of Chevy pickup were offered with either a stamped steel box floor or wood planking. The basic dimensions of the K20 stayed the same from 1973 until 1987. It was available with two bed sizes: a 6-foot bed and an 8-foot bed. The K20 name referred to the three-quarter ton, four-wheel-drive Chevy truck model. The next trim level was the Custom Deluxe, with a padded bench seat and arm rests, courtesy lights, a padded dashboard, sun visors and stainless-steel grill moldings. The Cheyenne trim included door trim panels, nylon carpeting, a custom steering wheel, extra insulation and upper body moldings.
The 1967 and 1968 model years are each unique for a few reasons. All K20 trucks had a 62. Both Stepside and Fleetside availability carried over from 1966, and revised grilles continued to represent new model-year calling cards up through 1972. . . . .
