1956 GMC SUBURBAN CARRIER PICKUP AD
Text from ad above.
AGAIN GMC lengthens its lead! Product advances for 1956 not only clinch power supremacy but reach into fields still unexplored by others.
For example, GMC's Road Shock Damper Suspension*-plus a unique new stabilizer-produces in half-ton models a ride comparable to the finest passenger car.
It literally melts away jounces-lets you sail over bad stretches that slow other vehicles to a crawl.
A remarkable new fast-ratio cruising axle in light-duty GMC's actually gives you an over~ drive's pace and economy without its cost.
Sharply increased engine displacement in both
sixes and V8's gives you a power family unsurpassed in the light-duty field. Specifically, GMC offers 14.4% GREATER displacement on 6-cylinder models, 16.2% on V8's than its nearest competitors.And GMC V8's, mind you, match the shortest stroke ratios in the truck industry.
Styling is well into the future -from panoramic windshield to snug sand-tight tail gate. Tubeless tires, of course. And a 12-volt electrical system is standard.
These are some of the strides GMC presents in its 1956 Blue Chip trucks. The values are even more notable. See your GMC dealer!
*Standard on Suburban; optional at slight extra cost on other 1/2-ton models.
