Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: South American Chevrolet C20 – The Middle Part Looks Familiar

Yes, the cab looks mighty familiar, but not what’s in front and behind it. This is Chevy C20, as built in Brazil and Argentina, shot by RiveraNotario in Puerto Natales, Chile. These came out in 1985, not long before the US versions arrived with their sleek new bodies, and were built until 1996.

You likely wouldn’t recognize what’s under the hood.

In addition to the familiar Chevy 250 six, in either gas or ethanol versions, there was a Perkins 3.9 L diesel, which got replaced in 1991 by either a NA or turbo Maxion 4.0 L diesel.
