19_ _-1946 Bolters
47-54 --Advanced Design
55-59 --Task Force
60-66-- Grumpies
67-72- Glamour
73-80- rounded lines
81-87-Square bodies
( I not am saying I am correct on all these tagged names , so ,,what say you )

Idaho -- the '47.2 to 55.1 *Chevy* trucks are actually called the "Advance Design" wink (No d on the end of Advance ... ). Jimmies were called something else. One of the GMC guys can refresh us both ... smile

And, Advance-Design was often (but, not always) hyphenated - as in Advance-Design Trucks.
