do 47-55 1st series chevy trucks have a vehicle data plate? Would it be on the firewall? Where to go on internet to decode it, if it is there?

The Data plate will be on the drivers side door post

If its still there you can run the numbers here

Some states used the door post data plate number as a VIN on title, other states used engines numbers for title , or assinged numbers.
Good Luck

They do have a data plate in the sense that there is a serial number plate that will give some limited info on the truck. If you mean is there a data plate that spells out all the options such as the original paint color, installed options etc. such as a later model car might have, then that answer is no. They do not give that detailed info.

Advance-Design trucks (47-55)

Options/colors information are not found anywhere on a USA Advance-Design truck.

This information might have been put on a bill of sale.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. []
