            I have so much trouble with those. But according to Leonard's drawing it seems the only real difference is in the front bumper guards. So I would guess (with what I can see) that this is a 47.

                Wow, Leonard, you have everything we need! It appears that the Champions had a different grille from the Commanders for all three years. That's interesting. I usually would expect the grille to change from year to year, and cover all models. Note that the look of the Commander grille was borrowed for the 2R trucks, which debuted in '49.

                Also, I love the Art Deco hood ornament used in the '47 Champion. I had no idea it was only for '47, and only for the Champion.

                    Agreed, Art; they are difficult to decipher. But notice that the '49 has an entirely different, more massive, front bumper. That's one way to at least differentiate a '49. BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        It's a '48. The '47 had a thinner bumper and the front guard/license plate holder was a "massive" chrome box.

                            Neat car...but why is one gray and the other brown?

                            The visor works well on it

                            Need to ditch those late model wheel covers.

                            Is this one the next one for you, Dave?
