58 GMC truck hood fit 56 Chevy

I am looking to swap the hood off my 56 Chevy truck with a 58 GMC hood. Can someone tell me if the 58 GMC hood will fit my truck or not before I make the purchase

I don't think it would fit since your hood would be too narrow for a 58 GMC. Wild guess though since I don't own either.

Somebody worked really hard to mess up the great looks of the '57 Chevy truck on that black thing.

Hood isn't that great....but that thing up front under the grill is a real fail.

IMO, the Tri Five Chevy trucks are the best looking trucks ever made, they need nothing changed on them except the running gear/drivetrain.

there are no ''tri five chevy trucks'', it is a 5 year run of task force trucks 55-59
that would be like me saying ''duo five chevy'' because i didn't like the 57 car

the 58 is narrower in front cuz 4 headlights made for wider fenders
both trucks are the same width overall (sort of)

hard to say what was modified, the hood looks like it was born there
