This is a four-wheel drive 3/4 ton Stepside pickup built on a 127 inch wheelbase with a ladder type frame. Unlike today’s 4×4 trucks, manual front locking hubs and a two speed transfer case were standard. These trucks borrowed heavily from military vehicles and were very rugged.
The optional 292 CID six-cylinder engine cost an additional $97. Over one third of the trucks sold in the U.S. in 1963 were Chevrolets. Total Chevy truck production reached 483,119 units. This was the first time, since 1950, that truck deliveries surpassed 400,000 units.
Engine: 292 CID Inline 6-Cylinder, 165 horsepower
