"I wonder how the price compared to say Dodge or D line inter of the time ??
They really werent much of a truck I thought they looked the part though"
Seems to be a general consensus about the larger C50/60's and yet the smaller C10/20 and even the dual rear wheel C30 were and still are quite popular, even over here. Depends on your own taste of course, personally i always thought they had a bit more style about them than the Dodge, Ford or Inter. But that's only my opinion.
Parts seem to be a lot more available for the 1970's on models than other makes, still reasonably priced as well.
But, had to have a bit of a laugh at one of the readers on an overseas forum commented, when I wrote that we over here didn't think a 50 year old vehicle was necessarily obsolete. "Fifty years OLD! Wasn't even born then!"
It was bad enough when they show "All New" variable rate springs when Chevrolet have used them since their first truck in 1914 and other manufacturers used them before that but what killed it for me and made me stop the video was when they advertised "better" steering, etc. Better than what? Fred Flintstone's log-wheeled car?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
