The first half of '55, (series1) the pu looked like the '54. The second half of '55 (series 2) they looked like the '56, so they were two completely different body styles. The diff between the '55 series 2 and a '56 was the hood ornament. The 'wings' extending out to both sides, came out at the bottom level of the ornament. Whereas, the '55 ornament had 'wings' that extended out from the top edge of the ornament. Also, the fender badges were located lower on the fender, I believe. Hope this helps.
