1948 Chevrolet Series 3100 Pickup

What it may lack in excitement the 1948 Chevrolet Series 3100 Pickup makes up for in genuine market significance. This classic workhorse was the first of any Chevrolet product to receive a full post-WWII redesign. In addition to ushering in a new and more stylized exterior look - including its "Unisteel Battleship" cab with bigger doors and a far larger glass area, the Series 3100 half-ton also set the stage for Chevy's modern-day pickups by introducing a new level of unexpected interior creature comforts, like a full three-across adjustable bench seat in place of the old trio of individual fixed-position perches, inside door locks, "Four-fold" ventilation and an accessory AM radio.
