History

General Motors' first major redesign post-World War II, the Advance Design series was billed as a bigger, stronger, and sleeker design in comparison to the earlier GM AK series. First available on Saturday June 28, 1947, these trucks were sold with various minor changes over the years until March 25, 1955, when the Task Force Series trucks replaced the aging Advance Design model. From 1947 until 1955, Chevrolet trucks were number one in sales in the United States, with rebranded versions sold at GMC locations. 1953 was the last year for the 216 in³ inline-six. The hood side emblems now only read 3100, 3600, 3800, 4400, or 6400 in large print. The door post ID plate was now blue with silver letters (previous models used black with silver letters). 1953 was also the last year to use wooden blocks as bed supports. New serial number codes were: H ½ ton, J ¾ ton, & L 1 ton.
