Old Chevrolet trucks in Korea

In the 70's, Shinjin cars in Korea began a relationship with General Motors, changing the brand of most of its vehicles to Chevrolet, or GM. The first basic looking pickup is called a "Saemaul" truck. Interesting!! Via lifelog.blog.naver.com/.

Here is the video of one, from a Korean museum.

The other trucks look like Isuzu, certainly the first is one.

They also remind me of this picture of a Chevrolet badged Isuzu Elf, from a 1977 Saemaul book (more scans here).

The same website also shows some advertising under the previous Shinjin brand, of 8 Ton trucks.
