100 Years Of Chevy Trucks, GM Celebrate The Centennial With The Old And The New

Chevrolet are celebrating 100 years of the Chevy Pickup Truck, by producing a Centennial Edition on the Colorado and Silverado platforms

Model year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the first production Chevrolet truck. A century and more than 85 million trucks later, Chevrolet has become one of the most recognizable brands in the world. To celebrate the Chevy Trucks Centennial, the brand is honoring the owners who have made Chevy Trucks a part of their lives for the past century with a 100-day celebration featuring two new Special Edition trucks, the national rollout of the Truck Legends customer loyalty program and more.

Along with the Centennial Edition Chevrolet also built a special Centennial C10, (below), as part of the celebrations

The brand simply noted the 1967 C-10 has been customized to feature many of the same elements found on the 2018 Centennial Edition Silverado and Colorado. Like the new trucks, the 1967 C-10 boasts the same “Centennial Blue” exterior color and wears the heritage-inspired bowtie badge. Mechanical bits and other modifications were not discussed at its reveal.

C10 Nation, Yellowstone and the One That Got Away

I started listening to Ronnie Wetch’s C10 Talk Podcast a while back and it’s very informative and enjoyable.

As a result I looked up Ronnie’s brilliant custom 1973 C20 Cheyenne Super 3+3 crew cab long bed, with the camper installed this thing is enormous!

There is a great article on the truck here from the RideTech website here

All this stuff reminds me of a few years ago when we were visiting Country Classics in Staunton IL during one of our US visits, as you can see the truck was really nice and the price probably even nicer at $5950! Sadly I didn’t pull the trigger….

As you can also see there was a nice red 78 Silverado at $9350
