View Full Version : Truck engine year ID?

09-23-2017, 08:13 PM
About a dozen years ago, I rebuilt a 245 truck engine for my '38 Commander State Sedan. I changed the engine, as, I got tired of blowing up the older, less cubes, less horse power, babbitt rod engines! I am taking it to Hershey next week to sell. I would like to let a new owner know what year truck it is from. The only info that I can find, with my limited truck books, is that is from a 1949-1953 Big Truck. The engine serial number is 4R3825.
Can anybody provide more information, on what year truck it could be from?
Thanks, George

That is from a 1949 model year big truck and is a 245 c.i.

Put some pictures and a price on here, please. Does it have the cathedral headlights?
