Ordering guide: -- the most detailed information on standard and optional equipment, accessories, and trim packages. You will find out the dealer's "inside information" that is far more detailed than a sales brochure. This book enabled Chevy salespeople to easily select the model of truck that best suited the body style, length, and load capacity that a customer needed. Each model is packaged with a tire combination; included in each package are all of the required options necessary for the safe and economical operation of the truck with the selected load. For each truck style and load rating, you'll see a list of specifications, including tires, front axle, rear axle, brakes, cab and body, clutch, engine, radiator, springs, steering, transmission, and miscellaneous, with slot for salespeople to write in prices. You'll also see a list of options available beyond those requirements. You'll see 6 pages of pictures and descriptions of accessories. You'll see additional sections of the book with descriptions of features such as transmissions, engines, brakes, etc. There are two editions of this book - a tan one that came out in the fall of 1955 and a brown one that is revised in March of 1956.
