The glove box plate is for a 1950 F3, that truck is NOT a 1950 F3. It appears to be a 1951 but I can't tell which model it is.. looks like possibly an F1 looking at the front fender from this angle.
BTW, you do realize that without a title that matches the number stamped in the frame, it is merely a parts truck, right?

If that plate was in the glovebox, it doesn't belong there. That is the 48-50 style firewall patent plate. A glovebox plate looks like this on a '52.

The most common reason would be a stolen truck, or one with a phony title. That is usually a sign of trouble. Like I said before, a 'parts' truck.


My questions would be, how long has this person been your friend, and just how did he acquire the truck?

It could also be that the correct title was lost or never existed, but someone had a matching data plate and title from another truck, so slapped them in.

Thanks for the correction, Joe!

When I got a new (to me) glove box for my truck, the new/used one came with the data plate still attached. It was off of an F6.

Glove box covers are only 4 screws away from swapping out.

They were all just screwed on at the factory (for the glovebox plates). That's why DMV's only care about the numbers stamped in the frame.
