Some people are walking automotive encyclopedias. They can look at a vehicle and quickly ascertain year, make, model—and probably a billion other facts, too. For others, it doesn’t come quite so easily.

That’s why we’ve created Ride Guides, our series of infographics and posts designed to help you easily identify classic and performance vehicles. In this first installment, we’re taking a look at the 1960-66 Chevrolet pickups—the first generation of the popular C/K family of trucks.

As with many cars and trucks, there are subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle outward signs that help determine the exact year of the 1960-66 Chevy trucks. The design of the grille. The location of a vehicle emblem. The style of the hood or windshield. These are all telltale giveaways about the exact year of the first generation C/K pickup. Yes, there are also interior clues and underhood giveaways, but this is a quick guide meant to help you pinpoint specifics at a glance. Click on the infographic below for a quick look at the outward differences between the 1960-66 Chevrolet pickups.

And then check back for more graphics on other vehicles in the near future!
