Design changes to the frame allowed for the cab to sit lower and for independent front suspension. The new truck series also allowed for a new naming scheme for the trucks; two-digit numbers for weight and C or K to indicate either rear-wheel or four-wheel drivetrain.
Between 1960 to 1961, badges were fitted to new trucks based on the naming convention of the previous generation - The Chevrolet Task Force. The lightest trucks - 0.5 ton to 1.5 tons - were offered as the 10 to 40 series with Apache badges, medium trucks were offered as the 50 to 60 with Viking badges, and the heavy 70 to 80 series trucks were fitted with Spartan badges.
C/K trucks were offered with either a Fleetside; smooth, or Sidestep; wide fender, body design and was offered across all light model trucks. Each model year also has a different badge design on the front fender.
Design changes across the first generation included switching from dual to single headlights with the 1962 model and the removal of the wraparound windscreen with the 1964 model.

|It is a derelict car that can be built after finding all five of its parts. The rumour as to the location of its first part is unlocked upon completing the Tyler: Riot Club questline in chapter 3 - City Lights.
Upon all of its parts being found, it can be built into a drag, drift, off-road, race, or runner class car.
Finding the parts for all derelicts will allow for it to be purchased from either the drag, drift, off-road, race, or runner class dealerships, and purchasing the Speedcross Story Bundle will allow it to be purchased from the speedcross dealership.
