GMC VIN ID, help please (thank you)!

Hello,
New to me, GMC, 1952, either a three quarter or one ton, (I think). In pieces, some things I'm not sure how to measure.
The VIN is 15222P8527. I have a title which says one ton, vehicle body FB. But the former owner says it's a three quarter ton.
This truck is not remotely complete, which is fine for me, I can start the project I want with it. What do I compare on the frame
versus the title, to see if I have a three quarter or one ton GMC frame, or perhaps parts were mixed long ago before he had it?
Thanks for any help that anyone can offer me! Thank you guys! Mike.

Blank = manual transmission
15 = 3/4 ton
2 = 125.25" wheelbase
22 = 228 I-6 engine
P = Pontiac plant
* 8527 = sequential serial number

* check this number again
range for 1952 3/4 ton is 9351 to 15036 for Pontiac plant
range for 1951 3/4 ton is 1001 to 9350 for Pontiac plant

The VIN tag has to agree with the state title in order to be registered (in my state) regardless of which frame it is on.
Each state has it's own rules. Check with your DMV.

Thank you! The rear end is out of it, but the spring leaves are in place. I should be able to get a useful approx. measurement
to distinguish a 3/4 from a one ton, right? Wheel center to wheel center, 125 vs. 135 or 136? Thanks again!

Did you get the point about the serial number? Do you have a 1951 or 1952?

A GMC shop manual for your year truck would be most helpful to you. I only have Chevrolet.
I could only find a GMC manual for years 1955-59.

Search Stovebolt for more information. I found this:
