1975 Chevrolet Big 10
Unlike many of the trucks, the Big 10 collection assisted raise ability more than esthetics. General Motors saw a need to structure the disparity between light-duty 1/2-ton and dense-duty 3/4-ton trucks. When customers analyzed off the F44 option on Chevrolet’s two-wheel-drive C10 trucks, the Big 10 tool was met.

Big 10 trucks approached quality with a six-cylinder with a GVWR of 6050 pounds or an elective 350-cubic-inch V-8 that was evaluated at 6200 pounds. Up front, the structure coil springs of most were coated up to control about 300 pounds more weight than a regular C10, while the breed leaf-spring pack was evaluated to control an increase of around 450 pounds, making these the 1/2-ton trucks to have for towing a vessel or trailer.

The Big 10 also collected special tires, presumably to control the increased loads, as well as Big 10 bedside designs. GMC supplied a model of the Big 10 labelled the Heavy Half.
