55 Chevy Pickup

Hello

I Live In South Central Michigan And Just Purchased A 55 Chevy Pickup. I Have Never Done Any Restoration Project So I Am Sure That I Will Have Many Questions Before I Am Done.

My First Question Is I Have Been Just Checking Out Some Parts Places And Other Stuff On The Net And Am Seeing References To First Series And Second Series. How Do I Know The Diference?

I Dont Have Any Pictures Yet But Will Soon And I Will Post Them Then

Thank You.

I think the only difference is in the dash.second series has the same dash as my 58.If you go to brothers trucks web site there catalog will have parts for both dash boards and you should be able to tell which one you have from that.I love working on these old trucks and will be happy to help with anything I can.welcome to the boards

Welcome to the site 55CHEVPICKUP. The grille is different and the body is different. They changed the body style during the production year. The first series body style was similar to all the 47-54 AD pickups. The second series was a completely new body style and had a different grille. Here is a link to the grille differences.
