An extremely old thread, but I thought I'd add more info to it, specifically on the late-1950's Chevy truck classifications.

1)Light-Duty (3100-3900 Series): Apache
2)Medium-Duty: Viking.
3)Heavy-Duty: Spartan.

Really extremely old thread, but still topical (even with some models missing). The next "episode" of this 1947-55 Advance-Design trucks part is here, for 1955-59 Task-Force and 1960-66 C/K 1st generation trucks.

Stay tuned! :grin:
