1957 Chevrolet Series 3100

The Chevrolet 'Advance-Design' series was the first major redesign in the post-World War II era. It was advertised as strong, sleeker, and bigger in comparison to the AK Series which it replaced. The Advance-Design series was available from Saturday June 28th of 1947 through March 25th of 1955. During that time, they were the number one in sales in the United States. The aging Advance-Design was then replaced by the Task Force Series, which ran from late 1955 through 1959. Their GMC siblings were called the Blue Chip Series.

One of the prominent features of the Task Force series was an industry-first wraparound front windshield. The Task Force Series II brought modern features such as a 12-volt electrical system and available V8 engine.

Even though the 1957 Chevy truck models changed little from the prior year, they could be distinguished by the two raised spears on the hood bulge. 1957 was the final year for the open grille on the Task Force trucks, which were redesigned for 1958. Most of the 1957 models featured the proven and durable inline-6 cylinder engine. The V8 was a cost option, and for many the inline-6 was more than enough engine for a practical truck like the Chevrolet.
