YEAR TO YEAR
Parts books list EXACT days, months,
and even VIN #'s when changes took place. That's great, except that different sources list different
dates and VIN's.
Also many people disagree and have their own theory as to the date. Even though a change
was in effect, dealers still used what was left on the shelf, so some trucks may not match
this section. Also in 1955 the model year/production year came into effect
so parts changes often began late in the year which gave time for the change to
be completed by the beginning of the next year, which meant the change over date
spanned over many months. The change may have started in August and all the
books say August, but the change was never really fully in effect until January
which is when the stock was drained. Go here
