1918 Chevrolet Four Ninety Half-Ton Light-Delivery Cowl Chassis There are indications that some Four Ninety-based trucks were built for internal use in 1916 — and that a few even earlier chassis may have been converted to ambulances and sent to France in 1914 — but the first customer chassis appears to have been built on Nov.
