1986 Chevrolet C10 The Chevy C10 is a line of pickup trucks produced by Chevrolet from 1960 to 1987. It is part of the Chevrolet C/K series of trucks, which also includes the C20 and C30 models, denoting different payload capacities.

The C10 was introduced in 1960 and went through several generations during its production run. It was designed to be a versatile and reliable workhorse, offering a balance of performance, utility, and comfort.

The early C10 models featured a distinctive "Apache" design with a horizontal grille and rounded hood, giving them a classic and timeless appearance. Over the years, the design evolved, featuring changes in body styling and options, with variations such as Fleetside and Stepside beds.

Under the hood, the C10 offered a range of engine options, including inline-six and V8 engines, catering to different power and performance needs. It was available with various transmissions, including manual and automatic, providing flexibility for different driving preferences.

Throughout its production run, the C10 became popular among a wide range of drivers, from farmers and tradesmen to enthusiasts and customizers. Its robust construction and reliable performance made it a popular choice for everyday transportation and hauling.

In the 1970s, the C10 saw updates to meet emissions regulations and adopt more modern styling cues. The square-body design, introduced in 1973, remains an enduring symbol of the classic American pickup truck.

In 1987, the C10 was discontinued, marking the end of its nearly three-decade production. Today, the Chevy C10 is a sought-after classic, appreciated by collectors and enthusiasts for its historical significance, enduring design, and its representation of the golden age of American trucks.
