For GM ,Ford AMC,and Packard yes 12 volt in 55 BUT, Mopar,and Studebaker stayed 6 volt for one more year. Once more 53 and 54 were weird years at GM Chevrolet and Pontiac were 6 volt Olds Buick and Cadillac all 12 volt (six volts just would not crank high compression V/8s when hot).Oh and for the fussy in 53 the strait 8 Buick Special was still 6 volt

will we have her all back together and it shows positive on the gauge. took it down and put 5gl of gas in it to freshen up the tank a little. then the long way home to get everything warmed up. by the time we got the carbon build up cleared out she ran like a straight 8 again. the brushes were cutting at a angle but after a clean up on the armature they are square now. but my guess is that the rust build up in the slides and brushes just had them stuck. one more case of us it or loose it. the leaking battery above it didn't help either.
