Juice? If original, most likely came with hydrovac power brakes.

Hy bryon welcome, rather than use the term "two ton" please use the series designation or post the trucks serial number. In order for us to give you the correct information or advise we need to know exactly what we are talking about. Good luck with your project.

Welcome to the Stovebolt wave

A 1955 COE would be a 1955 1st Series truck as Chevrolet didn't make a COE from 1955.2 thru 1959, they only made the LCF models during those years.

Are you looking to modify your brake system to something newer or put them back as stock?
