Here is a easy one.
In 1970 you could order a hood with " Cowl Induction" on a Chevelle.
You could order a similar system on a 69 Z28. What was it called?

Nope. That's not it. Interesting side note though, when Chevy was testing the system they found an approximate 1% horsepower increase is gained for every 11 degree drop in temperature providing the mixture is adjusted accordingly. Cold air--good.

Well the grille and bumper sure can't be original but it looks like a 55-56 GMC (55 second series as the first series is an AD)

edit: Wait a dog gone minute here, those are four headlamp fenders with "conversions" to two? I don't know those trucks very well but remember seeing this as normal. Is it a 57?

Nope not a 57. Other than the rims this truck is stock as it came off the assembly line. Including the grill and bumper.

After a considerable amount of Googling, and "geezering" (asking my elder peers), I believe that is a 1959 GMC Fleet 100.
