1937 Chevrolet Half-Ton Pickup
In the mid-1930s, as the U.S. economy began to recover from the Great Depression,
Chevrolet pushed for leadership in a reviving truck market with some of the strongest, most innovative and “modern” models produced to that point.
The Chevrolet Pickup for 1934 was designed from the ground up to withstand the rigors of truck service – prior half-ton models had been built on chassis adapted from passenger-car designs.
During 1935, Chevrolet introduced the Suburban Carryall, built on a half-ton chassis. This ‘truck wagon’ could carry up to eight people, or a crew and all of their gear, just about anywhere there was a road. Its durable steel body made the new model easier to maintain than the wood-bodied station wagons of the period. With the 1935 Suburban Carryall, Chevrolet essentially invented the SUV.
For 1937, Chevrolet introduced new trucks with streamlined styling that many still consider the best designs of the era. The ’37 also featured a sturdier body and a larger and more powerful 78-horsepower engine, among other improvements.
A 1937 Chevrolet half-ton pickup was sent on a grueling 10,245-mile drive around the United States that was monitored by the American Automobile Association (AAA). Carrying a 1,060 lb. load, the truck averaged 20.74 miles per gallon.
