Here is where the pickup really shown, and it had features such as 228-cid inline six with 96 horsepower. Improvements were made to the electrical system and airplane-type shocks were introduced.

As time moved on additional features were added that gave the pickup truck features found in luxury automobiles and that trend continues today.
