Chevrolet, a company that is commonly goes by the name Chevy, was started over a century ago in 1911. As of today, the company has operations in more than 140 countries.
In 2018, it managed to acquire GM Motors. The company introduced its first pick up truck in 1913, the Classic Six, and the company has gone on to make more than 85 million trucks in the last century.
Although the auto maker makes all types of vehicles for all kinds of budgets, it has managed to create a long line of highly popular trucks. Chevy trucks are well trusted across the world, and vintage models have become valued collector items for classic and vintage car lovers.
Broadly, the company makes light and heavy duty trucks. The company also makes regular cab, double cab, and even crew cab truck models.
Chevrolet has also made compact and mid-sized pickup trucks such as the Chevrolet Colorado, which is still in production.
The company has also tried to make trucks based on passenger cars, such as the Chevrolet El Camino, released in 1959, 1960, and from 1964 to 1987.
The company has also sold trucks that are SUV variants, such as the Tahoe and the Suburban.
Chevy began making trucks around a century ago. Some of these iconic models have gotten the attention of truck lovers all around the world; which is why vintage restorations of Chevy trucks are fairly common today.
Full car restorations are now available to those who own decades-old vintage Chevy trucks. Some of the best targets for vintage restoration include the 1918 Chevy Model 490, which was a light delivery truck sold as a chassis only. It was sold until 1922.
A few other subsequent models were also sold as chassis only. It was not until 1931 that the company sold its first factory-built truck, the 1931 Independence Series, which is also a great vintage model to have restored.
The company made the 1929 Chevy International Series AC Light Delivery Truck, the first truck to use a six-cylinder engine and got the name “Stovebolt” six or “Cast-Iron Wonder.” It is one of the most iconic trucks the company made, and therefore great for restoration.
Other vintage Chevy trucks worth restoring include the 1971 Chevrolet C/10 Cheyenne Pickup truck, and the Chevrolet Cameo from the 50s; a truck that was not just made for carrying heavy loads but also for driving comfort.
These and other beautiful Chevy trucks can bring memories to live when meticulously restored to their original looks.
