The first generation of Chevy C/K trucks began in 1960 and ran through 1966. A “C” truck designated 2-wheel drive, rear of course, while “K” designated a 4-wheel drive. Two body styles were available: the Chevy “Fleetside” (known as the “Wideside” in GMC models) which offered a smooth panel down each side of the bed; and the Chevy “Stepside” (which GMC labeled “Fenderside”) which provided a contoured panel outlining the rear wheel-wells and a “step” behind the driver and passenger side doors. These trucks rode very much like a long-wheelbase automobile due to the drop-center ladder frame and low-profile seats. There was no climbing up into the cab of one of these trucks unless you were under five feet tall.
