1941 - 1946 Chevrolet trucks
Model 3104 1/2 ton pick-up & 3116 1/2 ton Carryall Suburban

Welcome to (formerly known as 
This resource web started as blog of sorts on the restoration of my 1946 1/2 ton Chevrolet Pick-up. Early in my restoration journey, I found it difficult to find reference materials and info on these trucks.  Over time, this page has become a repository of information and reference materials for others headed down a similar path. After a few months of being off line in 2015, the page was updated to reference Art Deco Trucks vs the old name of 46ChevyTruck and republished in January 2016. While the downtime was not intentional, the name change was done to better describe the contents of the page.  So if you are looking for stories, reference materials and information about 1941-1946 GM trucks, you have found the right place. Also visit our Facebook page where you can share your own stories and photos of your own projects: Also consider visiting, and

If you have any original documentation or photos for the 41-46 Chevy or GMC trucks that you would like to share, please e-mail it to me for inclusion on the site.
