First introduced in the fall of 1940, these GM Medium-Duty trucks featured all-new styling, influenced by the Art Deco period of industrial design. The sealed-beam headlights were streamlined into the fenders, instead of mounted on top as on previous models. A 90-hp, 216 c.i. straight six cylinder engine was standard in the ChevyŽ, with an optional 93-hp 235 c.i. "Load Master" that generated 192 ft./lbs. of torque. Three different engines were available in the GMC version, topping out at 270 c.i. Production ran until May of 1947, when they were replaced with the "Advance Design Series" of trucks.
Stake body holds the spare tire and six oil barrels. Stakes on rear remove for loading and unloading. Chains are included for securing the load.
