This weekend I was feeling better from the trip to the dentist so we decided to go visit my happy place, S’miles of Sunflowers, to pick a beautiful bouquet of some of my favorite flowers. Sunflowers always make me smile; they remind me of summer time. And with the many varieties they grow here, there are lots of sunny smiles to choose from. But what does all of this have to do with a pickup truck?
As an added bonus, they have props scattered throughout the fields. Great photo opportunities for any level of photography and photographer. Will share the truck in color tomorrow but in the meantime (unless you’ve seen my Instagram account, if you have then shhhhh!) care to guess what color this truck is? If by any chance you have an idea what year/make/etc. it is I’d appreciate the information.
No Chevy’s were driven to any levy’s in the making of this post.
Love this in black and white. Sorry, I can’t help with the make and model but I love the truck.
Thank you! It is a yesteryear beauty.
Lol…your last sentence.
Doesn’t that say Chevrolet on the front of the grill???
Yes it does but what year and what kind of Chevy truck remains the question.
You need to drive that Chevy to the levee. I had two of those in the late 70s.
Do you know what model Chevy truck this is then?
I don’t know the model, but its year is between 1942 and 1946. There is very little difference in the body styles for those years.
1945 Chevy truck. I don’t think they had any other type of days ignition for their trucks back then
Thanks for the info!
Sometimes if you look at the rear lights on these cars… they will give the year. Love this Chevy. Guessing it’s a red?
Thanks. Didn’t get to look at the rear and it’s not red 😉
Hmmm… then green perhaps!
Could be 😉
Love those vintage trucks!
Me too! A huge car show is coming here in a few weeks and I will be on the lookout for the vintage sections.
This is a great photo! I love the design of cars and trucks from the 30s-50s. I recently took photos of an abandoned Packard here: https://matthewtrader.com/1952-packard-patrician-400-abandoned-and-deteriorated-in-a-texas-field
Thanks! I prefer vintage over brand new and if rusty even better. But I won’t turn down a new car show either 😉
