Chevy trucks seem to have been around forever. 1911 was the year that Chevrolet became a company and by 1918, Chevy was producing trucks to supplement their automobile line. From wooden cab models to regular sheet metal, these trucks hauled goods and passengers all over.
Through the years, the Chevy truck has done battle with the Ford truck and we, the consumers, benefitted from it in the long run. Today, regardless of how old your Chevy truck is, you can find parts for it. From original replacements to speed and custom goodies.
In today’s times, all the car companies are in trouble. As for GM, they had to discontinue the Pontiac line of cars, this following on the demise of the Oldsmobile. One puzzling thing about Chevy trucks though. What’s the difference between a Chevy Silverado and a GMC Sierra? I’ve been told that the difference was just sheet metal and that both trucks were built on the same assembly line at the same time by the same workers. This should be an area where GM cold slim down and produce one sensible model.
Granted, Chevy trucks are built “like a rock” and last forever but GM must preserve this stalwart model line.
We have a nice Chevy truck gallery coming up next.
