1960 CHEVROLET C20 : Project Geronimo

Chevrolet introduced the C/K full-sized truck line in 1960, and it eventually became Chevrolet’s most popular truck line ever, with a manufacturing range from 1960-2002. The first generation of the C/K pickup trucks changed how pickup trucks would be designed for the next four decades by introducing a car-like ride in a truck. We found this 1960 Chevrolet C20 Apache Fleetside pickup, a first year issue of the first generation of C/K series trucks, at an auction.
