Were the serial numbers for those early production models listed in the monthly Fisher Body News reports when the decision was made to switch over to the higher lids? Were the owners of those early production units contacted by GM regarding having the lid replaced with the redesigned lid for free? Were the Canadian production early '49's involved in this as well?

Seems to me that having a '49 with the lower lid and a serial number that fits in the production span would make this car a bit more valuable, right?

The only printed Chevrolet info. I have ever seen is what is posted.
Chevrolet would not be obligated to change over early models as the literature always states that they have the right to make changes and improvements at any time without doing so on previously sold vehicles.
If they would have made all the runninng changes made during the 1949 model year it would have been cheaper to replace the entire car.

Cool pics for sure! Thanks for posting!

I suspect the camper truck is a '26 1 ton. The headlight shape, the radiator grill, and the six lug wheels are the clues.

The cut-down car is a '28, judging from the radiator grill, headlight shape, and headlight rim.

Cheers, Dean

Nice to see a car as most came, without white walls and welled fenders, which most restorers add them now days.

So... I'm googling and searching Chevrolet stuff tonight, and I come across this pictoral history of baseball in Toronto Canada. A really nice history, with credited photos from various places like the Toronto Historical Society, the Toronto Library, a few published books on Toronto history... all pretty legit and factual places. Then, near the bottom I saw the photo attributed to the "Vintage Chevrolet Club of America"!!! That's right, a photo stolen right from our very own Old Photo Corner"!! Do I tell them that I pinched the photo from somewhere else? Do we feel offended by the pinching of our pinched photo?!! They even supplied a link to our site beermugs

Thought I'd do them a solid, and supply the link to their site...

Ray Great old pics on that search! Look at it this way FREE advertising for the VCCA Club! It was funny back in those days they always were all dressed up even with bow ties plus they would go to the factory’s to build cars in the same dressed up fashion! Not like these crazy days!
