1950 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup

In 1948, Chevrolet unveiled a new line of pickups which they termed the 'Advanced Design' truck. Standard equipment included a heater and a defroster, a luxury in those days. The cab was enlarged by eight inches and was seven inches taller. This made seating for three a reality. To improve visibility, the windshield was enlarged and cut into two pieces. In the front, the grille featured a horizontal design and recessed headlamps. The fenders became rounder, complimenting the aerodynamic and smooth body.

The trucks were customizable and offered with a wide array of optional equipment, ranging from engine upgrades to chrome accents.

Chevrolet put their new truck line on most commercial vehicle designs, ranging in size from 116 inches all the way up to 137 inches. Chevrolet was selling everything from Panel trucks to school buses.
