As American trucks go, few generations are more “apple pie” than the second generation Chevrolet C10 pickup. The “Action Line” series pickup has often been called out as a favorite among our readers.

But for our money, its older brother, the first generation (1960-66) C-Series, is equally impressive and eye-catching. Exhibit A in today’s argument: this 1964 C10 we spotted at Summit Racing’s Tallmadge, OH store.

Sure, the lowered stance, modern wheels, and LS7 that’s presumably under the hood (based on the badging) make this truck anything but a run-of-the-mill 1964 C10. But the body styling is unmistakably first generation C10–and in no way is that a bad thing.

Have a closer look at this ’64 C10 and try to argue that it’s anything but an American classic. We dare you.
