What exactly is a 'Sedan Delivery' (also referred to as a 'Panel Delivery')? And what is the purpose of a car being transformed into a truck? Well, the simple answer is that the Sedan Delivery was the original van. A Sedan Delivery is a relatively obscure body style built on a car chassis to accommodate the needs associated with a van (a truck is built exclusively on a truck chassis). Typically, it takes the form of a station wagon, but with the side and back windows replaced with steel panels. It was a very practical automotive design that didn't lead to the expense, size or driving difficulty of an actual truck and dates back to 1904, the year the Wright Brothers designed Flyer II, the New York subway opened and Japan declared war on Russia.
But it was during the forties and fifties that Sedan Deliveries reigned, particularly with Chevrolet and Ford dominating the market. This golden age continued until the two-door version was superseded by the four-door station wagon in the early sixties. 1960 was the last year Chevrolet would offer a full-sized, two-door wagon; hence, it would be their last Sedan Delivery model. Then, almost as quickly as it had burst onto the scene, it disappeared. There were marginal attempts at reintroducing the trend in 1971, but these fizzled out in 1974. Again, there was a slight resurgence in the nineties and early 2000s with the introduction of the retro-styled Chrysler PT Cruiser and Chevrolet HHR, but sales were disappointing and the HHR was killed in the GM bankruptcy fiasco.
The Sedan Deliveries had a one-piece rear door, hinged at the top, and came with one bucket seat (a passenger seat was optional). A total of 10,639 units were made during the 1955 model year, of which close to 2,000 were manufactured in Canada - the '55 was one of the rarest body styles, second only to the Nomad
