Often, those who were not around during the 1940s tend to see cars from that decade as tall and ponderous with fenders that looked like pontoons, hoods with a bulbous bulge down the center, and trunks that were more vertical than horizontal. With the exception of a cargo bed behind the front seat, even pickup trucks from this era were not much different between the front bumper and the front door.
