Overview

In the pages of Chevrolet Pickups, you'll find a legendary tale of how Chevrolet's line of trucks evolved from cars with beds...to the sophisticated luxurious trucks of modern times. Mueller's text includes the rise of the Depression-era trucks that made Chevrolet the number one manufacturer of light pickups, and Chevy's 30-year run in that top spot. Mueller explains how the leaders and engineers at Chevrolet made the company's truck line such a dominant force... and goes in-depth on many specific models that had enormous impact on the pickup truck industry. "The complete history of Chevrolet trucks is covered, with sidetrips that shed light on the GMC counterparts, competitive brands, and the ElCamino and Corvair pickups." Packed with photographs of beautifully restored pickup trucks, "Chevrolet Pickups tells the history of one of the (20th) century's greatest accomplishments."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Auto Restorer, November 2006

“The book is well rounded and chock full of hard-to-find information … Lots of big photos of correctly restored trucks--many of them in color--would be useful to a restorer, and are great to just peruse and fantasize about.”
