1955 Chevrolet Cameo Carrier

Nearly a century ago, Chevrolet workers assembled their first trucks—for themselves. Needing to haul materials around the car factory, workers decided to fit a few car chassis with hand-built beds. The new creations worked wonders, and Chevrolet executives decided to go public with the idea. Chevy built light-duty trucks for farmers, business owners, and anyone else who needed to lug lots of stuff. . . . . . .

In 1918, the same year that Dodge Brothers introduced its first truck, Chevrolet rolled out its first light-duty hauler: the Four-Ninety. Chevy sold more than 8,000 trucks by late 1919, and the company hit the 500,000 mark just 10 years later. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Recently, archivists at Chevrolet dug deep into their photo collection and assembled a gallery of Chevy trucks, dating all the way back to the 1918 Four-Ninety. We enjoyed these images and thought we’d pass them along to fellow truck lovers. . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

According to GM, this is a 1916 Four-Ninety pickup, built for use in Chevrolet plants. The Four-Ninety didn’t go on sale until 1918.
