reduced glare dash

The interest of safety began showing in a few areas of the 1955-1959 Chevrolet truck cabs. In a salesman’s data book dated September 1, 1958, this changed dash is shown with the comment “Crown of the panel having a glare-proof crinkle finish.”

This was to reduce the reflection of direct sunlight – a beginning of what is now a major emphasis on vehicle safety.
