Collector Car Market
1959, the last year of the Task Force design, saw truck sales rebound from a recession-plagued previous year. A few trim changes, most notably a front hood piece, and new options such as posi-traction were added.  Starting in 1958, the largest engine available in a truck was the 283 V8 with a rating of 185hp. The 348 V8 available in passenger cars was never available in the trucks.
