After World War II Chevrolet came out with a stronger, larger truck, in 1947. This was the Advance Design. Available through to 1955, it came in three sizes, the half-ton, three-quarter ton and full ton, with short or long wheelbases.

r neck was located on the passenger side of the bed and the hood side emblems read Chevrolet with either Thriftmaster or Loadmaster underneath it. During this model year radios were available as an in-dash option on the Advance Design. Fresh air heater/defrosters were also available. The Advance Design pickup had a 90 horsepower 215.5 cu Thriftmaster OHV 6-cylinder engine. The three-quarter ton and the half-ton each had a 3-speed standard transmission, or the optional 4-speed, which was only available for the one-ton pickup.


In 1948 the manual transmission shifter was relocated on the steering column, and the parking break was now a foot pedal on the far left, no longer a floor mounted lever. Double clutching was now a thing of the past with the replacement of the 4-speed spur-type transmission with a synchromesh.


There were a few changes in 1949, such as the gas tank being relocated upright behind the back seat. Later that year the emblems were replaced with numbers to reflect the cargo capacity of each truck, such as the 3100 on the half-ton, 3600 on the three-quarter ton, and the 3800 on the one-ton, with CHEVROLET as the side hood emblems. Thriftmaster, on the side hood emblems, was no longer used.


1950 saw the addition of telescopic shock absorbers instead of lever-action, and in 1951 vents were added to the windows. This was the last year for the 80 MPH speedometer, chrome wiper knobs and chrome door handles knows on the windows, and also the year when the bed was changed from a 9-board to an 8-board layout.


1952 saw the introduction of push button outer door handles and a new 90 MPH speedometer, as well as painted dashboard trim, and maroon window and wiper knobs. The 3100-6400 designation on the hood was dropped. There was no rear bumper offered.


In 1953 the 215 cu engine was dropped. A rear bumper was now available and the side-mounted spare tire was offered for the first time as an option. All the wiper knobs were a maroon plastic and the ID door plate, previously black and silver, were now blue and silver in color.


1954 brought about several new changes in design. The windshield, once having a vertical strip down the centre, was now one curved piece of glass. The grille, dashboard and steering wheel design were updated ,the tail lights were now round and the carbo bed rails were straight horizontal. As for engines, the Advance Design now had a 235 in straight-6, and Hydramatic automatic transmission as available as an option for the light-duty trucks. The Advance Design was available through to 1955 when the new Early V8 pickup trucks were introduced. As for the look of the truck, two-tone cabs were available as an option for the first time, but the top had to be white.


The design for 1955 was the same as 1954, but the hood-side emblem was now redesigned and the enclosed torque tube was replaced with an open driveshaft.


The Chevrolet Task Force was introduced in late 1955 and was produced through 1959. It had the new wraparound windshield and an optional wraparound rear window on the deluxe cabs. 1955 was the first year that power brakes and power steering were available on GM trucks. A new 12 volt electrical system was in place and fenders had single headlights and a one-piece emblem below the horizontal line on the fender.


During 1955 the Chevrolet Cameo Carrier was also introduced. It was a two-toned truck with automatic transmission , a V8, and fiberglass panels which were added to the Chevy steel carbo-box. While not exactly a popular model or big seller, it had style and elements of that style could be seen later in the Ford Styleside, Dodge Sweptside and the Chevy’s Fleetside. A chrome grille, full wheel covers and chrome bumpers were standard on the Cameo.


In 1956 the Task Force got a wider hood emblem and lost its egg crate grille design. In 1957 the hood was flattened out and the fender emblems were oval instead of a script design.


In 1958 the light-duty trucks were renamed the Apaches, medium-duty trucks named Vikings and heavy-duty trucks called Spartans. The trucks were given four headlights and a wider, shorter grille, with parking lights available in the grill. Factory-equipped air conditioning was now available. The 1958 Chevy truck design would barely change in 1959, other than a nicer, larger hood emblem and the ba
