If I remember correctly the truck door handles are the same from 1935-38.

Unfortunately this mystery can't be solved with just this one picture...

Ribbed running boards make it a '37 or '38. '36 had a raised diamond pattern on the running boards.

The running board pattern then may be the only answer IF we could focus in on that running board. There is a pattern on the image that appears to be because of the digitizing of the photo, if the original photo could be enlarged you could narrow down the year. Best of luck

Didn't know about the pointed door handles. Yeah my Grand Pa was quite a man, he also was a Master Mason aka Free Mason home lodge was in Carson,CA. Grand Pa made sure we all grew up doing the right thing or doing it as well as we could for our ages. Every thing we did was done 100% correctly nobody got away with well it looks good Grand Pa the looks good Grand Pa wasn't good enough for him. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Unfortunately that picture doesn't exist anymore, I made some pictures/copies before my mother died. I made copies of the pictures I wanted and that one was First on my list. All the pictures/photos disappeared thanks too my little brother.

I see ribs on the running board when I zoom in. 98% sure it is not a raised diamond pattern.

Yes I agree you get things done with greater Numbers. Knowing its ether a 37/38 is ok with me, not knowing its ether a Chevy or GMC not a real big deal as its still a GM product.

And I say it again THANKS so much for what little to little more I have learned for this FORUM and its participants, kudos to you all.
