Hello, folks! Im hoping someone can help me with this one, there seems to be some pretty knowledgable folks on here. I have a big 1946 GMC, 270 engine, 2 speed rear end... very nice condition & 100% original. Still has the kerosine road flares on the side of the cab. I cannot find info on the model number anywhere. The data plate reads 15,000 lb GVWR with a model number of "CC404". Every book or database that Ive seen does not have that model number. Ive read it may be military. Any ideas? Thanks!

Someone had some questions about a '41-'46 CC 400 series truck on the website, www.oldgmctrucks.com not long ago. You might want to check out the discussion board there also. I believe it would indeed be a military version, by it being a Heavy 400 series 2 1/2 ton truck, & only having a gvw of 15000lb.'s. Civilian trucks having a 15000lb. gvw, would normally be of the 1 1/2 ton 300 series. the military usually spec'd everything on the light side.

Thanks for the response. I got the rest of the info from everywhere I could find it, if its of use to someone.

ID Tag on drivers side firewall reads:
I574I22I97

Serial Number on frame reads:
CC4047432

Serial on engine near distributor reads:
270655285

In looking closer, the firewall has some original paint on it. It is a deep olive green. It has a governer between intake and carb. There is a box on the firewall, with leads to the generator, that has a voltage adjustment (+/- 4vDC) and a button that says "push to polarize before starting". Perhaps an adjustable voltage regulator? I also found an old regestration under the seat that says it was ran by "Point Ranch" out of Bridgeport, CA in 1969. If this is an old military truck, Id be pretty stoked. Ill have fun taking it back to olive drab and playing with it. Thanks for the lead, Im picking the brains over at the old GMC truck forum as well.

Hey Judge, Im the guy that had quesions about the 400 series trucks. My truck is also a CC404, It's a 1945,I have yet to hear about another. So far yours is the only other 404 that I've heard about
My serial # is CC4047189 The tag on the drivers side reads 1574-13557
My truck has a 248, it also has a governor under the carb. It has a vacuum operated 2 spd rear end, the original color was Brewster Green with Black fenders & running boards, with Apple green wheels.
I bought mine from the son of the original owner. It is a Civilian truck. I also have the original title from 1945.
I haven't been able to find a whole lot of info on these trucks, however what I have found is a copy of the sales brochure for trucks released to civilians for 1945, it shows the 400 series trucks, which is the CC402, CC403 & CC404, all with a 248 engine.
They show the 270 listed for a 450 series truck. Where yours came with a 270, it very well could have been a Military truck.
The 270 was the engine in all the military trucks. I also have a maintenance manual for our trucks. it covers the 300, 400, & 450 series trucks. ( & Katrina if your'e reading this, it covers your truck as well.) Both of these books are on E Bay now. There is lots of detailed information in the maintenance manual. The # on the upper right hand corner of the cover is X-4523. Id like to see some pics if you have any.
I have pics of mine below. I've been wondering how rare these trucks really are, they're probably not worth a whole lot, but it makes it worth while knowing there arnt a lot of these left.

Hi There, new to the website here. I have some questions that I cant seem to find the answer to. I know this thread is super old, but maybe someone will chime in. Im trying to identify my 1946 GMC truck. The Model No is CC402. I cant seem to find info that will point me to what exactly this is. Is my truck a 1 ton, 1.5, or 2 ton? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Nice truck, it looks like it has the rare wide front fenders, about 25" wide across behind the headlight bucket, so, one could put a full width front axle, if one wanted 4wd, for example. Found a pair nearby in CO.
