Hi All

I have canadian Maple leaf right hand drive 47 Truck.
From the ID plate -attached.

IModel is: 11NZ840
serial#: 7-1133- 31547

From this I get:
7 - 1947
1 - Chev
1 - 1100 or 9100
3 - 137 wheelbase
3 - cab chassis

My question. What is the difference between an 1100 and 9100 and how would I know which it is?

I plan to turn it into a daily hauler.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Danny Sunkel

Hy DannySunkel, Welcome, the numbers on your identification plate have arrived there by two different methods, the "serial" number has been embossed into the plate, most likely in Canada before the truck was exported, the balance of the numbers have been stamped into the plate, most likely to conform to New Zealand identification standards. In Canada your serial number would decode as a 1947 Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton cab and chassis truck with a 137" wheelbase. If your front axle has a screw in eight sided cap that would confirm it. Maple leaf trucks were 2 1/2ton identified as a 16 series and 3ton identified as a 17 series, the 3 tons were powered by GMC engines, hope that helps.

1100 is the Chevy
9100 is the gmc
The two share most parts with exception of anything gmc branded.

I am curious if you have a metric speedometer cluster in your truck
Please post a photo of your dash if you can
Thanks

Canada didn’t switch over to Metric system until around 1975

GM produced metric speedos for export to countries that were metric
When Canada switched to metric is not relevant to the exported vehicle, the target countries laws regarding imported vehicle compliance is the issue.

To date I have only seen 1 example of the metric version of each the 0-80 mph and the 0-90 mph Speedo

I own one of them that came from South America
Even the odometer counts in in KM not miles
I would like to collect more information about metric specific parts for my own interests
