1. Chevrolet International Series LD

Just 10 years after the revolutionary Series 490 truck, Chevrolet introduced a brand new International Series LD pickup in 1929. Again, they based it on the passenger car model. This pickup had a few improvements that made it the best Half-Ton truck on the market. The chassis and suspension were more durable due to the intended purpose of the vehicle.

For the first time, Chevrolet offered a closed cab directly from the factory. Interestingly, aside from mechanical and engineering improvements, Chevrolet offered several different colors to the customers. This was the first chance customers had to order a working truck in a color different than black. Automotive historians claim this was also the first time a major truck maker paid attention to the style of the trucks.
