C-10 Truck History, 1973-87, The Squarebody, the Longest Truck Model Year Run, Resto-Mod Trucks

Auto Revolution’s Influence & Impact traces the automotive history of custom car and truck builders.

Finishing off our C-10 History run is the longest-running truck platform GM has ever had, the 1973-1987 (or 1991) Squarebody. Offered in many custom editions, with a variety of options from the factory; these trucks have seen custom looks since the beginning.

With the rise in popularity, and price, of the 67-72 truck, customizers looked towards ‘what’s next’ and what they remember from the past and began building Squarebody trucks, keeping much of the factory styling, trim, and nostalgia intact.

Stay tuned for the next episode. The off-road or hot rod younger brother to the C-10 truck, the K5 Blazer is explored.
