Chevrolet Task Force
As the successor to the venerable Advance Design trucks, the Task Force Series ran from late 1955 (second series) through 1959.
The 1955 second series offered standard options and add-ons such as 12-volt electrical systems, the first V8 (the 265 cubic inch), and fleet-side 6-foot, 7-foot, and 8-foot-length beds.
1958 Chevy Pickup Differences
First year for fleetside bed, significant redesign of front end. All ⅓-ton trucks are now called Apaches. Truck now has four headlights instead of the previous two and features a shorter, wider grille running the width of the front end. Parking lights are now in the grille instead of being in the front of the fender and the hood is similar to 1955/1956 models, but with a flat “valley” in the middle. First year for factory-equipped air conditioning.
