Chevrolet Trucks : One Hundred Years of Building the Future

In 1917 Chevrolet introduced its first truck, the Series 490, marking the company's official entry into the dedicated truck business. During the century that has passed since that first Chevy truck, Chevy (and later GMC-brand trucks) have become some of the most ubiquitous and recognizable brands around the world. Every year the company sells over 1 million trucks worldwide.

From the very beginning of the story to today's modern global brand, "Chevrolet Trucks: 100 Years of Building the Future" covers the entire Chevrolet truck saga, from the early Series 490, to the medium and heavy-duty models, to the light-duty C-series pickups, right up to today's contemporary Silverado and Colorado.

Officially licensed with Chevrolet and created with their full cooperation for imagery as well as interviews with key figures involved with today's truck program, this thorough history covers the full array of Chevy models since 1917 and is a must have for any truck fan whose heart beats with a V-8 rhythm.

Les camions de l'U.S. Army : Chevrolet 1.50-ton 4x4

Entre 1940 et 1945, ce sont un peu plus de 170 000 véhicules, toutes catégories confondues, que la Chevrolet Motor Division de la General Motors livre à l'armée américaine ainsi qu'aux nations alliées. Dans cette production, presque 160 000 exemplaires le sont en version 1.5-ton, 4x4. Elle connaîtra de très nombreuses versions : cargo, fourgon pour les transmissions, camions benne du génie, tracteurs, porte-bombes pour l'aviation, etc.

Ce petit camion est présent sur tous les théâtres d'opérations du second conflit mondial, où sa robustesse et la fiabilité de sa mécanique lui permettront d'accomplir sans faiblir toutes les missions qui lui seront confiées. Plus de trois-quarts de siècle après ses premiers tours de roues, il fait la fierté d'heureux collectionneurs passionnés.

L'auteur Didier Andres, né en 1959 à Verviers en Belgique, est passionné d'histoire militaire et par les véhicules américains de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il a rassemblé une impressionnante documentation technique et photographique sur le sujet, qu'il est heureux de partager par des écrits réguliers - livres et magazines - depuis une vingtaine d'années.

U.S. Army Chevrolet Trucks in World War II : 1 1/2-Ton, 4x4

Between 1940 and 1945, large numbers of trucks of all categories were delivered to the U.S. Army by the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors. Over 160,000 of these trucks were the G-506 light four-wheel drive trucks - which became the standard 1 1/2-ton, 4x4 truck for both the U.S. Army and Army Air Corps during the war. In addition, many more thousands were delivered to Allied forces as part of the Lend-Lease program, including nearly 50,000 delivered to the Soviet Union.

Tough, well-built and more agile than the deuce and a half, the Chevy 1 1/2-ton played a part in every theater of operations during the war. Its durability and mechanical reliability made it ideal for a wide range of missions. Not for nothing did Chevy advertise the trucks during the war as "Vehicles of victory."

More than 75 years after it was designed, the small Chevrolet truck is still a favourite with collectors. This fully illustrated book details the different series of trucks and their many uses within the U.S. Army including cargo trucks, panel delivery trucks for the Signal Corps, dump trucks for engineers, telephone trucks, tractors, bomb service trucks for the air force. It also covers their part in the Lend-Lease program, and their continued use after the war.
