More About These Old Trucks from a classic car restoration specialist in Flordia…

In 1947, the Chevrolet linked the gap between a passenger car and pickup by introducing the new series of light duty truck.

In comparison to the earlier model of AK series, this advanced design was of stronger and larger build.

Until few years these sleek machines were replaced with the Task Force Series. The design and configuration of this family infused with the Suburban, Canopy express, cab overs and panel truck models.

In ’55 with some differences in the hoods and fenders, the Chevy truck were the top seller in the United States.

With 3 or 4 speed manual or a 4 speed Hydramatic automatic transmission the size variation of the trucks were – Full ton, half and three quarter.  They had a 216 cu – 261 cu in engine (l6) under the hood. The Thriftmaster Stock, Advance Design, 3100, 3100 panel van and GMC 100 were some of the models.
