A Kentucky Chevy

1954 marked the first significant design changes in the Advance Design Chevrolet truck that was first introduced in 1947. The 1954 truck had a curved one-piece windshield for the first time. The grille changed from five horizontal slats to a crossbar design commonly referred to as a "bull nose" grille. A Hydramatic automatic transmission was available for the first time as an option. The design lasted for only two years with the Chevy getting a complete makeover in 1956. This rather artistic 1954-55 truck was found in Nelson County, Ky.
