The ser number is 8263898 ME-32. 160" wb the engine is a 25" head and the num is T40-14851 It is very light and hard to read Body tag K-2-2-LR. 1112 I put that ser num in at that T137 site and it said it was a 1937, and I found the annual registration in it from 1958 that says '37 but if it was wrong from the start it would just continue.
The first picture is the rad cap area of my truck, the next two are an ornament I found on ebay. It looks like the base has the same lines as the grill shell on my truck. It is going for over 300 with a buy it now of 750. I dont plan on buying this one, but would one similar be acceptable on my truck. My plans are a partial resotoration. Mostly original, no paint, I like the rusty patina look. I will use what I can that came with the truck. I would like to keep it sitting low, and add a pickup bed.
I just picked up this truck a few months ago along with a 47 Dodge and a 47 Stude, they are all 1.5 ton trucks. They are mostly complete and fairly straigt. I would like to find a hood ornament / rad cap for the '37 that is close to original. However I can't seem to find any pics of one. The smaller pickups had an inside rad cap and bolt on ornament. On This truck the rad cap is external and in the grill shell.
