"Two at the front, two at the back and one in the center of the lower door."
"The 1/4" holes I'm talking about are on the lower panel below the door handle and above the access panels."
"Looking through the AD truck assembly manual and found out what these (5) 1/4 holes in the lower part of the door are for. It looks like the deluxe cab 5 window truck had a n option for a lower door panel mounted with metal caped push clips."

In addition to Brad's request, is there a chance you could post a photo or send one of us photo to post for you?

You must have a different reprint from mine (maybe you have an original?).

Also, mine is 1947-1955 1st series

Mine goes from Section 1 Sheet 23.00, to Section 1 Sheet 23.01, to Section 1 Sheet 24.00

I have an NOS (original) assembly manual. Problem is....It does not designate what materials the panels are made of.

Any chance you could scan and post/mail that page and/or post/mail of photo of your door?

Thanks,

I would sure like to see that sheet, after pouring over all the other door details there is not a single reference to these holes.

I thought I heard push pins mentioned, that would be for the '54
plus door panels and I think that's what he's seeing in the
illustration.

Without a photo, we are guessing. A "lower door panel" is being referred-to. Can we assume that is referring to a panel below the standard cardboard panel?

It would be helpful to see the FAM illustration and the inside of the 1949 door that is being referred-to.

The panel according to my assembly manual is a panel below the standard panel board panel. If I had a scanner or copier I would be happy to send this page from the manual. Guess I need to invest in a copier scanner? Just a thought....Na! Anyway, it would be nice if you guys would answer the questions asked and quit second guessing other members and GM. Does anyone know what these panels below the standard panel were made of? Just another thought.....I was attending the Myrtle Beach Car Show last spring and found another AD truck with these same holes in the door. Tracked down the owner and he had the same question...what were they for and what went in the holes. His truck was a 1950. Maybe it was something special to the Southeastern U.S.?

It would be even nicer if you would figure out a way to post a
picture of what your' talking about as we've asked you to do
several times. Remember the old saying, "a picture is worth a
thousand words"?
Here is a stock 1950, 3600 which is exactly like all of the
other AD's that I've seen and I've never saw one with holes
like have asked about, which is what all the others have said
from the beginning. The only one that is disputing it is you
and you claim to have the only documentation for it. Borrow a
camera and take a picture of the page and doors and email it to
one of the guys here and they will post it for you.
