In the main screenshot: the smallest wheelbase (114"/2.90 m) of the 1955-59 GMC Blue Chip truck line + the V8 fender emblem make it a 100-8 model (101-8 in GMC codes). Apparently no 1957 "spears" nor 1958-59 "valley" on the hood, so a 1955-56 model.

In stronghold's thumb #1, confirmation of the 1955-56 hood plus obvious lack of the "grille extension panel": a 1956 only model.

Is the "-8" important? (is it for the V8?)
As it puts it aside the other 101

It is connected to the others when clicking on the "100" part of the name. But not on the 101-8 link of the "chassis code" indeed.

It was sold that way. But in fact only the 100 part of this name was visible on the grille:

(1955 and 1957 models, but informations worth for all the Task-Force era)

With 100 only in the name, but with V8 as complement, then? It could be seen as a kind of trim, as it was worth a special emblem at that time. But maybe we should keep the "-8" in the "chassis code", as it is part of the whole and accurate one...
