mid-1940s Chevy commercial flatbed truck. That one was a challenge to identify because of I don't know commercial trucks very well. Here we have another one which may be a 3600 series 3/4 ton model, which if I've guessed correctly is classified as a model 3609 stake bed.
sales literature I read was correct, factory striping on blue trucks was normally Argent Silver. Customers had one engine option on smaller trucks like this, a 216.5 cubic inch inline six making roughly 90 horsepower. A three- or four-speed manual transmission put that meager power to the rear wheels.
