Vehicle Description

1956 Chevrolet 3200 Pickup

The Chevrolet Task Force was Chevrolet's successor to the Advance Design series. The Task Force Series ran from late 1955 (second series) through 1959. At GMC dealers, it was called the Blue Chip Series. Designed by Ned Jordan, Chevrolet's Task Force pickups blurred the line between passenger cars and trucks. They were more comfortable and roomier than previous Chevy trucks, and they offered stylish features like a wraparound windshield, hooded headlights, and an egg-crate grille.

For consignment, a nicely buttoned up 3200 series pickup from Chevrolet and right out of 1956. A few changes in the powertrain, some convenience options added to the interior, and a more modern front suspension. Appearing extra racy with a flip front end, a customized truck, with presentable paint and the ability to rip it up a bit and haul some stuff or just some ass!

Exterior
Bright red covers this step side version of this medium duty 3200 series hauler and presents with some inclusions, chips, and scratches. Single chrome bezel headlights reside under a very 1950's eyebrow at the front of each fender and a fantastic custom horizontal barred chrome grille floats just above the tucked red bumper. A bulbous hood sans badges or ornamentation now is attached to the fenders as a 1 piece forward tilting unit in fiberglass. The lower sections of each fender were cut and remain in a fixed position to avoid opening and closing issues. A wonderful wrap around windshield, and an integral sun visor are seen on the cab area. Right behind is the step side bed courtesy of a 1993 Chevrolet pickup. Under the black vinyl tonneau cover we note a red painted bed along with a pieced together rubber liner. The entire exterior of the bed is razor straight, and gaps are well minded. The tailgate functions and there is absolutely no rust on the exterior of this truck. 15-inch 5 spoke aluminum wheels are wrapped by Futura GLS radials on all 4 corners.

Interior
A complete redux with leather textured ribbed black vinyl for the lower door panels with red steel uppers and shiny handles. Inside, late model leather wrapped pillow topped and buttoned charcoal bucket seats with fold down armrests float in a sea of clean black carpeting. These seats are now powered, and look just fab, meanwhile, fronting this is the factory metal dash, painted in body matching red, with the original fan style instrument cluster along with added auxiliary gauges and an AM/FM/Cassette player. A late model GM steering column with an aftermarket Sun tachometer is seen, and in the center is a B&M shifter. Above is a custom headliner in ivory with black steel making up its surround.

Drivetrain
A flip of the big hood and fenders and floating in the center of the patina riddled engine bay is a consigner-stated 350ci V8 with a 4-barrel carburetor on top. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is on back which pushes power rearward to the rear tires via a 10 bolt rear. Power steering is on, and power brakes are also a welcome upgrade. Headers can be noted too.

Undercarriage
Underneath is painted in black steel for the framing, floors and suspension, with some areas showing light surface rust. A gen 2 Camaro frame is on the front with independent coil spring suspension and leaf springs for the rear. Power disc brakes are now on the front and power drums for the rear. The aforementioned headers snake their way down to dual exhaust complete with Flowmaster mufflers.

Drive-Ability
This truck roared to a start and accelerated like it was on fire to the test track and on it as well. It handles beautifully and comes to a quick stop. The power seats are a plus, and there are plenty of gauges to distract your attention on the dash.

A nice build in need of some touches on the fit and finish, but still a looker and a cooker with a newer engine, power accessories, and nice exterior paint with a comfy interior. A neat looker and a hot cooker, we give you the 1956 3200 custom hauler ready to haul the goods and all the while hauling ass.
