I think more to mixture of '55 and a '60
For me the roof is typical '60 with that roof over the front window

Vu de face, elle me fait penser à 100% à un camion Dodge 1956

If its a Chevy pickup, wouldn't it be either a 1 ton, 1/2 ton, 2 ton or Apache? It kind of looks like a 2 ton Apache.

After looking at the pic, and from a knowledge that Larry the Cable Guy (Voice of Mater) has a Dodge truck in real life, I would guess its a 56 Dodge.

According to the Cars cast listing on Wikipedia, Maters a 50's Chevrolet, but I still think it looks more like a Dodge.

This is where it gets weird, the definition for five stars is "the car is part of the movie" and that's no more true than here (although, if nothing else, Doc Hudson only has three stars, which seems a little low).

There are 10 cars part of the movie then for this one. The movie is about McQueen, so this one can get 5 stars. Other important ones get 4. I agree that Hudson should get 4.

the cameo resembles a lot, plus , they got oxided very easly and they were 100% transformable, so the tow was a normal option

I still thinking than he's a Cameo, but 50's Chevrolet were very similar.

Wikipedia says this being a "1951 International Harvester L-170 "boom" truck with elements of a mid-1950s Chevrolet One-Ton Wrecker Tow Truck"..
This picture's text is in finnish but you get the point there.. Link to "www.tekniikkatalous.fi"

This is all subjective, because Mater is a fictional cartoon truck, but it appears that Mater is an amalgomation of 55-7 Chevy, and similar year International. The telling detail is the large removable headlight bezel that the Chevys do not have. The bezels on the Chevys are inset into the fender hood, while on Mater, they actually form a bit of a hood, but are not at all flush, rather they are added on, and protrude, just like on an International.

In the ending credits of Cars2, Mater's passport is shown, and states his birthdate as 1957.

Don't know if you can understand or read English, But Mater is definitely NOT a 1956 Dodge!!! He's a 1955 to 1957 Chevrolet or GMC tow truck.

Nope!!! That ain't a '56 Dodge!!! The '56 Dodge has a wrap around windshield, You're WAYYYYYYYY WROOOOOOOOONGGGGGGGG!!!! on that!!! Mater's cab looks like a late '50s/Early '60s international Harvester pickup, I take it that you've probably never even seen a '56 Dodge Pickup before, I strongly suggest that you do a Google Search on "1956 Dodge Pickup",

Mater displays a wealth of mechanical knowledge in "Cars 2", He rocks even more in that!!!!! I can't understand why so many people didn't like "Cars 2", I sure did!!!!

Yeah!! A Silverado in '56 is COMPLETELY INCORRECT!!!!! That guy does NOT know his vehicles at all!!!! The Silverado first appeared in '75 as the top of the line trim level for Chevy C/K Pickups and Suburbans, Then in 2000, The full size Chevy Pickup was exclusively named Silverado, The same goes for GMC, The Sierra Grande & Sierra Classic trim levels cme out in '75, But GMC began calking it's full size pickups Sierra exclusively in '88.
