The Model: In 1947, Chevrolet moved the commercial vehicle world forward into the post-war era with their Advanced Designed line of Suburbans, vans, panels and pickup trucks. The half-ton versions were placed in the 3100 series and for the first time could be appointed with accessories on a par with passenger cars. While the majority of the trucks were placed into utilitarian uses, a few of these ended up in a lighter-duty role, Regardless of what task they were asked to perform these trucks were tough and today their survival is quite high considering they were hitting the market some 68 years ago.

 

The Car: This truck was given a full cosmetic and mechanical restoration to high standards. During the painting process, all metal surfaces were stripped clean at which time any minor repairs were performed. Today it sports a beautifully chromed grille, front and rear chrome bumpers and a set of period correct whitewall tires. The restoration also features a beautifully finished wood floor for the bed. Under the hood the rebuilt “six” has been authentically finished and topped with a chrome valve cover. Inside the cab of this truck, you’ll find the very desirable upgraded Air Conditioning and a recovered vinyl seat that completes the interior appointment in the style of the era. Over the past few years, light-duty commercial vehicles have been capturing the interest of more and more collectors which has seen their values constantly rising. Ahead of the pack has been Chevy’s Advanced Design pickup and this one is worthy of being a leader.
