The 1918 Chevrolet One-Ton was the first purpose-built Chevrolet truck. It was meant to be an affordable and flexible platform, able to be purchased as a cowl and chassiis or an express body with or without an eight-post curtain top. It had a whopping 36 hp and 3.67L OHV four-cylinder engine. This also marked the year Chevrolet merged with General Motors.
