I picked up this beauty today. It is mainly going to be a wood hauler/ storage for my fire pit. I do want to make it legal to drive on the road. So I want to know what years they made this style on truck. The only thing I have to go by is the style of tail lights and tailgate.
I will have to wire to make the lights work. I may have to replace the lights if there damage. Also the DMV may want to know the year if I have
try to plate it.

I think 69/70 - 72

I’m not a Chevy guy but it’s funny how it used to be you could recognize something from a half mile away just by the headlights.

It also might be because I had a friend with a 72 that was 2 Wheel Dr. and perhaps pushed it once or twice

That body style was built model years 1967-1972.

I think side lights came out in 68 and the rear fender side lights on at 72 looked like they were a 2 piece unit; even though they was a 1 piece ASSY. so I would say a 69 - 71 Chevy

That would be a homemade trailer at my DMV, and the year of manufacture would be when the torches got involved.

Being a homemade trailer, the date would be irrelevant in MN. Don't know where you are located but I'd be surprised if it mattered. And it certainly wouldn't be the date the donor pickup was made.

67 to 72, as everyone says. I had a 70 C10 all through high school.

In Virginia for homemade, you go by the construction date of the trailer. They will also issue you a VIN tag with a number that must be riveted to the frame.

'67-'72 as stated. I have a '69 now.

There was a period of time when you could look at the mold marking on taillights and the year of manufacture was molded in. Sometimes off one year from actual build date but not always. Have a close look?
