The famous 1947-55 Advance Design Trucks were so popular in the US that GM just could not let them go. Overseas factories used this basic US tooling for their version of the Advance Design trucks. This continued for many years after they had been discontinued on US assembly lines. Look at some of these trucks in other countries using GM’s older tooling. Doesn’t this cab tooling stand out as was used in the US during 1947-55? How interesting that these new trucks were still found new over the planet for at least another 10 years!
The mechanicals may be different but the cab is so familiar!
