Description

The Task Force was Chevrolet's successor to the Advance Design Pickups and was produced from 1955 to 1959. Its more contemporary style included a 'wrap around' windscreen - a truck industry first. This most eye-catching of lightly customised examples is understood to have been restored in America in 2015 and imported from California in 2016. A 'big rear window' example, its comprehensive specification includes: 350ci (5.7-litre) small block engine; TH700R4 transmission (that was overhauled by Alders Automotive of Hailsham last year at a cost of £1,852); transmission cooler; Camaro rear end stub axles and disc brakes; and power steering. '192 UYU' was treated to both a new starter motor and cab heater last year, and is now considered by the vendor to have 'excellent' bodywork, Turquoise paintwork, Cream-coloured interior trim, V8 engine and four-speed automatic transmission. The Chevy is now available for sale complete with a collection of invoices and V5C.
