From 1947 through 1955 GM/Chevrolet designed, built and marketed the “Advance” design pickup which was a light and medium duty truck. It was built as a larger, stronger and sleeker design of that from the Pre-WWII trucks. During this time, Chevy trucks were number one in sales in the US. A few changes happened during this time frame, most of which were small cosmetic and functionality differences. The major change was the discontinuation of the 216 6-cylinder and use of the 235, which was essentially the same engine and design with larger innards… This very unique truck comes to us from a consignor who says this used to be a forestry or natural resources truck but still trying to figure out the particulars. It has a really cool service bed with covered canopy for the top and back. This is a rare 1-ton truck with a 4-speed, first gear being a granny gear. The original engine should have been a 216 but is now the more desirable 235 out of a late 1950's truck. I cant find any tag on the service bed so I do not know the manufacturer. Parts of the trucks original engine and numerous other parts come with the truck as do some hubcaps that were probably off the original wheels. This truck starts, runs, brakes and shifts quite well with some smoke at cold start up. This would make a killer business promotional piece for numerous types of business. I drove this down the road and I was quite impressed with its road manners.
