Chevrolet's radically different 1947 Advanced Design light-duty trucks represented a sea of change in pickup design and appearance. The nation was entering the exciting Post World War II era and after four long years of war the American people, especially the veterans, were looking forward to new opportunities in the world's greatest country. There was no better way to put the past behind and look to the future than with new lines of America's favorite form of transportation - cars and light trucks. Post War automobiles followed a little more than a year later than the new trucks. GM was the first manufacturer to release the new-look post War trucks late in the 1947 model year as 1947 models. They were announced at Chevrolet dealer showrooms on Saturday June 28, 1947 and continued with little change until 1953. ~ Don Dunn
