The Chevrolet Suburban was based on the 127 in wheelbase with 2 doors on the passenger side and 1 on the driver's side and either had a tailgate or double rear doors. A couple of years would pass before Samuel dropped the truck off at a shop to have it painted. Yukon Gear was founded in Washington state — where extreme weather and off-roading are commonplace — and manufactures performance products that were built to perform and built to last in harsh environments.

Samuel Fernandez's '72 C-10 No matter what it is, when something gets stolen you feel a multitude of emotions-surprise, anger, vulnerability, and helplessness, just to name a few.
. At first Samuel fiddled with the minor things the truck needed, like aligning the passenger door, replacing the light switch, and throwing on a new set of Cragars. It was after this in 2001 that he decided to send the truck to Paco and Ricardo Lopez at Universal Auto Body in Gardena, California. Coil springs remained at all four corners beneath the restyled 1967 Chevy C10, but a crisp, clean pickup appeared on the outside, and in some opinions the new Chevy looked even more modern than its half-ton Ford rival, which was also updated that year. Both Stepside and Fleetside availability carried over from 1966, and revised grilles continued to represent new model-year calling cards up through 1972.
Back in 1990, Samuel Fernandez of Torrance, California, became the victim of grand theft auto. The 1969 and 1970 C10 and K10 models look for all the world alike without knowledge of the various trim levels. A whopping year later he picked it up and was more than unhappy with the job they did. All years of this generation of Chevy pickup were offered with either a stamped steel box floor or wood planking. These days, Samuel and his family enjoy the truck as often as possible, taking it to any cruise-in, show, or stretch of open road they can find.
The 1971 and 1972 Chevy pickups tend to be the most popular, with a shared large egg crate grille and further refinements such as front disc brakes. Today, this generation of Chevrolet C10 and K10 are some of the most loved collector trucks extant, and for good reason. Power assist was optional for the C10 half-ton, but standard for the heavier pickups. They are drop-dead gorgeous, have timeless styling, possess good build quality, and are easily drivable in modern traffic. When they were new working trucks, the steel floors tended to be more popular, but today a wood bed truck brings a premium in the market. A host of trim packages emerged during this generation, and serve as rolling proof that some truck buyers indeed preferred their pickups to play as well as work. This was the hardest part for Samuel, as he knew that the paint color would make or break the C-10.

All Chevy pickups were treated to standard front disc brakes in 1971. Now the search was on for another one. Again, the Custom Deluxe, and the Cheyenne options were available which came with black pinta coated fabric, antique medium tan pinta coated fabric or antique light cover coated fabric. Bucket seats were also available. Regardless, Samuel had a vision. Unfortunately, none of these feelings will help bring back what was taken and the more valuable the item, the more painful the sting is on the old pocketbook.
Furthermore production numbers were large and they were home to several of the same engines used in popular Chevy cars, meaning maintenance, restoration, and upgrades are all relatively easy endeavors. The 1967 and 1968 model years are each unique for a few reasons. Everyone sat down and laid out the scope of the project and decided on a few clean body mods and, most importantly, the color. Outward appearances on the '72 Chevrolet Trucks were the same as the previous year minus the Black finished grille surround.
