    No, Im thinking 1941 Chev Special Deluxe. The deluxe has waist high bright work moulding that stops short before it wraps arount the back, as can just be seen on original photo. The Fleetmaster doesnt have that moulding.

    hey ZA Happy Holidays!!

    I was swayed to the fleetmaster because of the 2 vertical bumper-ettes on the rear bumper... . the rear bumper on the 41 didn't have have the bumper-ettes but maybe it was an option? or maybe some of the aftermarket rear bumpers are not OEM shape?

    1941 Chev Special Deluxe

    It really is confusing. Here are some pics of my 41 Special Deluxe, with bumperettes, but they are a different style to those in other pics. Maybe an aftermarket option.

    This truck slipped through the cracks...

    its a 47' - 49' KB 6 international truck. the insignia is the creased edge that runs runs along the top side of the front fender..the grill is pretty unique to the international as well...not shown is the lower side of the doors on the hinge edge have a huge radius instead of a square corner where that vertical hinge edge of the door turns to run horizontal /parallel to the rocker panel :-)

    Lots of cool shots in here. Here's one I stumbled upon way out in the woods. Not sure what it is/was.

    good eye raptortrail it's a 78' vintage.
    I thought the wide top beam created by the inner fender was pretty different as well ... the lightening holes in the upper rad/cross member area are also in the pic below

    This trio appeared in front of a double wide trailer in BFE Alabama about 6 months ago. It's typically rotting Camaros that adorn the front yards around here.

    To me it looks like a 55 Chevy truck, small round turn signals, not in the recessed fender where a GMC grill would be. but with a GMC hood with the big hole. :dunno
