Advance Design was the name Chevy gave to those years of truck.
I believe that Art Deco was not a Chevy term, but one that was given to the earlier trucks by someone else.

Rich is correct, except for the minor matter of Advance-Design being hyphenated in most GM uses of that term. New Design GMC was never hyphenated.

There was another post ahead of my other one that gave the years. I see that post has disappeared.
Advance-Design refers to the trucks from 1947-1955 1st series.
Art Deco usually refers to the 1941-1946 trucks.

That was my post, I was trying to edit it. Went to preview changes and hit the box next to it by mistake

Hardly a dumb question. For my first year here, I thought it stood for "Art Deco"! I guess that's what I get for buying one.
