1946? Chevy 2 ton?

Hi folks...I'm in need of more advice..lol.. I recently purchased this beauty for 800 bucks..running and driving So, I'm told it is a 1946...I have no idea how to tell. The tag that was on the cowl is removed and I see no marks on the frame..I understand there was no such thing as a vin # in 46? and they went off the engine block? All I know Is it has that exterior frame support plate on it, that maybe makes it a 2 ton? or 1.5? Its absolutley awesome that it runs n moves..lol..cant wait to get started..The title I have for it is a 53 btw...wrong but a clean title none the less..wish I knew more about it..the ppl I bought from have no idea as well..said it was a farm truck.They old owners ( who knows how long ago) before the ones I bought it from, had coated it in whatever paint was laying around (thankfully) Its got some rust , but the frame is mint and most of the cab is great..just door rot mainly..
Anyone have a hookup on doors, glovebox door, non widowmaker rims, instrument cluster, heater ect...lol...I need alot of parts, just need to know what year I'm working with. It has a hi/low rear btw..
Thx in advance folks...I'm stoked to get started!!!

Re: 1946? Chevy 2 ton?

Could not tell from pics but if door key on passenger side is not in the door handle it is newer than a 41. Depending on part needed --41-46 body and interior parts Cab parts 38-46 I think. You will probably need to half skin the doors , maybe cab corners, other. Should have a 2 piece headliner.
Is there a tag under the hood on the cowl passenger side? Does it have a title?

Re: 1946? Chevy 2 ton?

The truck is a 42-46. Most body parts are interchangeable 39-46. The dash is different in a 39, the rear window mounting is different 39-41 to 42-46. The firewall is different 39-40 to 41-46. If you shop around you can find better doors but they are getting harder to get, most of them are going to need repair on the bottoms.

Rob, If you have any trouble with the state regarding title transfer or registration, pm me. I just got a brand new title for a Dodge truck I bought (without a title), for a project. I know how to get you a title with the correct year and make truck.

Where you at in Central Jersey? I am in N. Jersey Warren County.
