1934-35 Australian Chevrolet

1934-35 Australian Chevrolet 1 ½ ton

These photos might be of interest to US owners of 1934-35 Chevrolet trucks. The Australian design is very similar however there are just enough differences to catch the attention of the close observer.

Examples: The hood sides and doors are quite different. Check the curved door bottoms. Of course, this also makes the cab different.

Probably the most unique feature is the lack of roll-up door windows.  Maybe to help lower the retail price, Chevrolet used “side curtains”!  When the rain came, the curtains with see through inserts were snapped in place on the door exterior to keep the driver and interior just a little dryer!

The wheels, grille emblem and radiator shell are like the US. We suspect the drive train and frame rails are also the same.

Of course, the US ½ and 1 ½ ton use the same cab. No doubt Australia follows the same guidelines.
