    However, when it came to the grille, the focal point of the truck, changes had to be very noticeable. The truck designers were limited in creating a new grille as both makes would still have the same front fenders and hood. For these limitations, the designers actually did quite well. They almost made them able to be exchanged from one make to another. On the , only the small filler panel between the grille and fender top had to be slightly modified.

    The attached photos show how two grilles can be different and yet fit in almost identical sheet metal areas of the trucks.

    General Motors right hand drive trucks, though unusual in the United States, have always been very popular in specific countries such as Britain, New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia. These vehicles were not produced in the U. Due to reversed dash boards, the change in steering components, differences in starter linkages, and tail light locations, etc.

    This was mostly to help provide more local jobs. Thus for many years the GM Canadian facility exported truck parts only to the New Zealand assembly plant in Petone near the capital city of Wellington. Hundreds of freight containers supplying GM truck parts regularly arrived at this New Zealand assembly plant. The specialized parts from Canada were engines, frames, suspension components, disassembled cabs and front sheet metal.

    The New Zealand plant then assembled the truck and furnished parts they could provide locally. A locally made wood deck could be added during assembly. Either with or without this deck, the two rear pickup metal rear fenders from the Canadian plant were wired or otherwise secured at the rear of the cab. The finished vehicle was delivered this way to local New Zealand GM dealers. The lack of a bed would also allow the budget minded buyer to construct his own deck or hauling platform and better afford the new truck.

    A New Zealand trailer manufacturer during these early years used pickup rear fenders on their finished product. Their small general purpose trailers were usually equipped with these new metal pickup fenders.

    A retired 88 year old manager of this company remembers having standing orders with all New Zealand pickup dealers not just GM to purchase their extras. This saved additional expense on their completed trailers. Their right hand drive feature is unique to American readers, however, these Chevrolets have another very unusual characteristic. As with most New Zealand Chevrolet trucks, their cab was assembled in the New Zealand Petone plant from pre-stamped pieces, and are a mixture of two types of trucks.

    The rear of the cabs and door outer sheet metal are of the U. The cowl, windshield frame, hood and grill are the style. Yes, they do weld together nicely into a single unit but the horizontal door and hood lines do not match. Quantities of older style rear cabs, roofs, and door stampings were either already available or the prior tooling still had much remaining life.

    The lower cost could then be passed on to the retail truck buyer. Just another way of producing the New Zealand GM truck at the lowest possible price! Another theory for this unusual combination cab is due to the beginning of World War II.
