I came across this article in
Old pickup trucks from Chevrolet, International, & Ford.These three photographs date to 1940/1941 and show the Pea Harvest taking place at LaCrosse in Washington State. The first photo shows a couple of farmers sat on the running boards of their newish Chevy Pickup truck, a 1939 1/2 ton model by the look of it.
1939 Chevrolet pickup.
Full line-up of 6 American trucks
As mentioned this photo is dated on the back as 1940, yet the second truck looks like a 1941 - 1946 "art deco" style Chevrolet pickup, with the distinctive waterfall grille. Below are two close-ups of this image, showing each vehicle more clearly. The vehicle on the far right looks like a Ford to me, and those on the left a Chevy, Chevy, and an Inter. The other two I'm not sure about.
2. Another pre-war Chevy truck.Next, from a different batch of photos altogether, another pre-war (1937 - 1939 or thereabouts) Chevrolet 1/2 ton pickup truck. Finished in a two-tone colour scheme, it looks in great condition and could well have been new at the time of this photo.
