1955 Ford Trucks - F100
The 1955 model year brought few changes over the 1954 Ford trucks.
The grille was changed. It now had a dip in the middle on the top bar (which designated a 6 or 8 cylinder engine: a star for 6-cylinder engines, a V8 emblem for 8-cylinder engines). The vertical guards were gone, and the Ford F-100 emblem on the sides of the hood was "fancier".
Other changes include optional power brakes and tubeless tires were put on the F-100 model.

New Custom Cab F-100
A custom cab option was available on the F-100 which added 17 amenities, including foam rubber cushions, color-keyed two-tone upholstery, armrests, dual horns, light gray sun visors, side bolsters, kick and door panels, headliner, and sound deadener. Custom Cab trucks also came with chrome Custom Cab door emblems.
