The purists might wince, but this is one hell of a frankensteined GM. For sale from Classic Car Addict out in Mesa, Arizona for an asking price of $52,500 is what we’re calling a 1975 Chevy K10 that is actually titled as a 1975 GMC K15–because that’s what it left the factory as. Since then, it’s been thoroughly restored including only the most choice components from both modern and classic Chevy trucks including a front fascia from a K5 Blazer, a rear end from a K20, a motor from a 2001 Suburban, and a steering wheel from a 1989 Chevy K10. Add a paint job so deep you could swim in it, a refurbished interior w/suede headliner, and a 6” lift, and you’ve got yourself one bad mamma jamma.
1975 Chevy K10 or 1975 GMC K15? Yes.
The legend. The Chevy C/K line of trucks.Manufactured by General Motors from the 1960 to 2002 model years, these rigs were marketed by both the Chevrolet and GMC divisions. Most commonly associated with pickup trucks, the line also included chassis-cab trucks and medium-duty trucks and served as the basis for GM full-size SUVs. It was designed (and did well) to compete directly with the Ford F-Series and the Dodge D series, and later the Dodge Ram pickup.
Regardless of whether you call this a Chevy K10 or a GMC K15, this is a 3rd generation C/K truck. Introduced for the 1973 model year, it earned the "Rounded Line" moniker by being designed to have a more streamlined shape to improve fuel efficiency and reduce drag.
The 3rd generation was given an all-new chassis with all trucks receiving a leaf-spring rear suspension. K-Series trucks moved to all-wheel drive. Alongside the introduction of the four-door crew cab, the third generation C/K marked the introduction of a dual rear-wheel pickup. The Rounded Line generation was produced for 18 model years, making it the longest running C/K generation. For 1987, it was renamed the R/V series to make room and eliminate confusion with the fourth-generation C/K that was marketed alongside it. The venerable C/K was phased out in 1991.
Specs & Condition.
It’s spotless. With only 340 miles on this rig since its comprehensive restoration, you could literally eat off of every surface. We don’t recommend the upholstery, but mainly because we wouldn’t want you to mess it up. But the rest? Go for it. It’s hard to imagine a cleaner ride.
