Was Bob involved in the design? I know that he was involved in the 1953 Commander and 1948 Pick-up truck.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, Bob was involved in the 1950, along with many other vehicles. Bob Bourke managed the 40 member Loewy Studio at South Bend at the time of the design of the 1950. Bob designed the 1949 R and 2R pickups, not the "1948".
