What year is your truck? Or at least what year do you believe it to be? Also, is it a USA built truck? Some of the Fords built outside the US have a different VIN configuration.

Welcome to FTE, please post some pics of your truck so we can better help you.
This thread is over 3 years old, you really should start a new thread instead.
Based on the serial# you posted here is what it tells us
9= 1949 or 1950
8R= it was equipped with a 239 cu in flathead V8 (8BA or 8RT)
y= f-3 3/4 ton Heavy Duty
501434= production # This high number indicates that it is actually a 1950

There should be stampings in the upper firewall that will give you more info. The exact location of those stampings varied depending on which plant the truck was built in.
BTW, the data plate in the glove box is NOT the 'legal' identifier. That same number should be stamped into the pass side frame rail near the radiator. The frame number is what must match the title.

Effietrucker, that is a standard US serial number for 1948-1950

A '50 should have a plate next to the horn relay, high on the passenger side of the firewall, too.

Get a wire brush and degreaser, you will find the number stamped in the frame.

Post some pictures and we will tell you what year the body is. grill/hood cab/dash bedside


What does the Title say?

The hood looks to be a '51
One thing for sure, that tag in the glove box does NOT belong to that truck. I'm not sure how hard it is to get a title in CA. but if your buying that truck, I'd get busy with the wire brush on the frame looking for the serial#
