It seems Chevrolet has been making trucks since the beginning of time. What are some of the top ones from through the years?

1) 1937 Chevy Half-ton Pickup

In the mid-1930s, the U.S. economy began to recover from the Great Depression. Chevrolet wanted to lead the truck market with innovations. The 1937 pickup got a streamlined design, a sturdier body and a larger, more powerful 78-horsepower engine.

 

2) 1948 Chevy Half-Ton Pickup

In 1947, the world was still celebrating the end of World War II. Chevrolet celebrated by introduceing a completely redesigned truck with a roomier, more comfortable cab, improved visibility and a wider pickup box. The design was produced, with few major changes, from 1947 through 1953.

 

3) 1955 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup

1955 Chevrolet Cameo Pickup was designed to be the "Gentleman's pickup". This truck was for the more at home lifestyle, but still a beautiful and powerful truck. It came with a V-8 engine, and a beautiful body.

 

4) 1967 C-10 Pickup

The 1967 C-10 Pickup lasted through the 1972 model year. This classic truck featured a lower-silhouette cab and large, rounded wheel openings. The new chassis had coil springs front and rear. This truck was pulling campers, boats, and RV's for family vacations while still being capable of getting the job done at the farm.

 

5) 1973 Chevrolet Suburban

The 1973 Suburban featured a roomy four-door body, and could carry up to nine passengers. This truck was bigger, longer and stronger than any car-based station wagon. The 1973 Suburban set a style that continued through the 1991 model year.
