Cohort Outtake: 1951 Chevrolet “Advanced Design” 3/4 Ton Pickup With 9′ Bed – Heavy Hauler


Do I love Chevy Advance design pickups/trucks? I’ve called them America’s and my favorite truck before, and I haven’t changed my mind yet. We’ve seen dozens here before, but I think this is the first pickup with a 9′ bed, which were always fairly rare. Nifticus found this fine example in Penticton, BC., and I’m more in love than ever.


This one is doing just what it would be if it were in my hands: hauling stuff. A bit high up, for my taste though, but that goes along with that heavy duty rear axle and those tall wheels and tires. I can just hear its six working though the gears now. Soul music.
