1955-1959 Task Force
THE “Second Series,” or Task Force, was a big deal when it debuted in 1955. A new 12-volt electrical system was now standard on all trucks, and helped better start available engines, such as the newly available 265-cubic-inch V-8. Chevy trucks would now feature a wrap-around windshield, which was actually a first for any truck on the market. And with style reminiscent of the now-legendary tri-five cars of the same era, these trucks are absolutely gorgeous whether stock or modified. The “Cameo Carrier” introduced the first fleetside bed on a Chevy, which would become a popular option on trucks from then on. The 1958 models debuted with twin headlights, mimicking the look of the new 1958 Impala. 1959 models received only minor cosmetic changes in anticipation of the upcoming release of the C-10.
