    Looks pretty nice for that price...especially since it runs.

    I just didn't know if he was wrong by saying C10 or if they were all a "C" back then.

    found it! :haha:

    [FONT=Times New Roman, Times, serif]Model Series designations for 1960 were completely revised. The new system began with a letter prefix. For example, a "C" prefix indicated a conventional cab; a "K" indicated a 4 wheel drive model; a "P" model was forward control; an "L" was a low cab forward; an "S" was a school bus and an "M" was a tandem.[/FONT]

    Lots and lots of people call the C/K trucks "C10" (20, whatever) 'cuz they don't know any better, including the various and sundry magazines, for-sale websites, even the online parts stores.

    I've given up, especially with the whole K5-vs-V1500 thing, on correcting anybody.

    But yeah, 4WD == K for pre-73's.

    The title would start with the letter "K" designating the 4X4 model. The second digit would have been "E" if it had a V8 or "S" if it was a 6-banger. Even though the 67-69/70 4X4's were "K" trucks, they still could have a C/10 or C/20 fender badge. To confuse us even more, in 1972 GM added a C to the front of the VIN. So, you would have a "CC" or a "CK"........clear as mud, right?:doah: :D
