37. Chevrolet AK Series Truck
Chevy introduced the AK Series truck in 1941. They based the AK Series on Chevrolet’s passenger car platform, but with suspension modifications to improve towing capacity and payload. It was available with two six-cylinder engines, 216 and 228 cid, and with a three-speed manual transmission.
Its mechanics were simple but dependable. The AK Series had a few body variations, such as a regular truck and a Suburban van. Another option was the interesting Cab Over design with the passenger cabin spreading over the engine bay. In 1942, they ceased production of civilian models because of WW2. When they resumed in 1945, this generation was rarer than the later models.
