1949 Chevrolet Pickup lineup

1949 Chevrolet 3100

While the five bar grille remained unchanged for the 1949 model year, other features such as appearance and finish had changed.  Inner bar assemblies were changed to a Waldorf White finish.  Trucks that featured a rear corner window, a different rear roof panel section were used.  The windshield still came in two-pieces with a black rubber seal and stainless steel divider bar.  The interior featured wide seats, large windshield, side and rear windows.  The instrument panel displayed fuel gauge and ammeter, pressure heat indicator and an oil pressure gauge.

The ¾ ton trucks, as well as the 1 ton trucks, received the same new styling but had a longer wheelbase and bed.  Longer running boards were featured on the 3600 & 3800 series. Also available again were the 3700 Series (3/4 ton) and 3900 Series (1 ton) Dubl-Duti Forward Control Chassis Truck. This allowed the buyer to add their own truck body. Calendar year production for the 1949 Chevy Pickup totaled 383,543.

Options included rearview mirrors, genuine leather seat trim, chrome radiator grill, long running boards and rear fenders, dual tail and stop lamps, oil bath air cleaner, heavy-duty clutch and various tire size options.  Dealer accessories included a rod type radio antenna, locking gas cap, gasoline fliter, outside air heater/defroster, matched horns, underhood lamp, non glare rearview mirror, hood ornament, windshield scraper plus a tool kit bag and tools.
