Ford was the first of the Big Three automakers to enter the pickup market in 1925. However, it was Chevrolet who became the top truck-seller in Detroit by the time of World War II. After resuming civilian truck production in August 1945, Chevy released the new “Advance Design” pickups in May 1947. These models were wider, longer, and lower than the prewar leftovers sold in 1946. They had a modern appearance and featured a unique “alligator” hood that was hinged at the rear. Although the Advance Design trucks remained largely unchanged throughout the 1950s, Chevy continued to outsell all of its competitors, including Ford's new F-series models that entered the market in 1948.
