1972 Chevrolet C-10

1972 Chevrolet C-10

In 1967, Chevrolet introduced their restyled pickups with the marketing slogan, “The Action Line.” Pickups were beginning the paradigm shift from work vehicles to everyday commuters/family autos. Chevy trucks could be ordered in a wide variety of trim levels such as Custom, Cheyenne, Cheyenne Super, Highlander and Longhorn. The differences between each trim level was the same as today; a higher level of refinement, comfort and of course, price.

The interior appointments of the new line of trucks was vastly different from its predecessor; large instrument gauges, in dash air conditioning and more soft surfaces (as opposed to bare metal). More refined exterior styling and a variety of engine options had customers flocking to the dealerships en masse. Sales were so popular that by the end of the production run in 1972, the trucks were being manufactured in ten states and four countries.

At about this time, the country was beginning its love affair with RVʼs and Chevy trucks offered strong and comfortable trucks to pull heavy travel trailers or bulky bed mounted campers. Die hard Chevrolet truck fans feel that GM got it right with this series and have dubbed them “The Glamour Pickups” for their styling, proportions and comfort. This truck, a 1972 model, is regarded as the holy grail of the series and is generally worth more than an equally equipped truck from earlier years.
