I don't recall seeing a spec sheet recently for the 47 and older but here is one for a 51 52 which should get you pretty close. should be under 5,000 lbs anyway.

good luck.
Josh and post pictures when you get it home

I have the 1946 Truck Sales Handbook that would be the same as your '47. As on Josh's chart, there are variations depending on wheel base, and wheel/tire combinations. Since I'm working off the phone I can't scan the pages, so bear with me. If the truck is equipped with six 7.50 x 20" wheels and tires, plus a seventh bare spare wheel, the curb weight of the 101" wheel base COE cab/chassis is 4435 lbs, the 134" wheel base model is 4570 lbs, and the 158" model is 4645 lbs. If you have a two speed axle, 8.25 x 20" tires, or other special equipment you'll need to add for those variances. Stu

Would you happen to have any info on the 42 - 47 1.5 ton chassis with cowl. It's for a School bus

Sorry. I dont really have any literature on these years trucks but i know i have seen other people on here have posted chassis info and diagrams. I think there is a couple of current threads open here towards the top that may have some info.
What specifically are you needing info on?

The bus cowl and chassis are probably the same as a truck just possibly longer wheelbase?

There were two school bus chassis/cowl configurations, 158" wheel base and 194" wheel base. The Truck Sales Handbook has a section devoted to the school bus models. These books show up on eBay pretty regularly, and would be worth having if you have one of these buses. They are admittedly pricey, but are great references. Stu
