Day Three of Black & White Week
Here’s another entry into the “When Pickups Were Trucks and Not Status Symbols” log book: a 1964 Chevrolet C-10 Stepside, seen a few weeks ago in Tonawanda. You can tell from the advertising material that most of these trucks spent their days at work. Here’s just a few of the features touted in that year’s brochure: Two-Stage Rear Suspension for improved ride and better load control; tough ladder-type frame… with heavy-gauge channel side rails joined by alligator-jaw crossmembers to increase frame resilience. Optional were a driver’s arm rest, right door lock, and passenger-side sun visor. I wasn’t able to find any mention of heated leather seats, dual (or even single) climate-control, or 20” chrome wheels.
