only here I'd say - never heard of any model breakdowns of production on the old trucks - Gunnell sez about 65,000 trucks 5-10,000 GVW produced in 54 [170,000 below 5,000], and I'd bet very few were 1T panels- if you've one there in NZ [that wasn't recently imported used eek ], it likely came from Canada, w/ even less info available - got pictures? grin

All the 1-ton trucks had 8800lbs capacity on the door plate but for the truck to actually be rated for that it had to have dual rear tires of max. size. The actual ratings can be found in a shop manual reprint.

I don't have a manual with the '54 figures but for a '51 1-ton they ranged from 6200 lbs with 7.00X17 8-ply tires to 8800 lbs with 7.00X18 8-ply duals.

The 1954 Salesman Truck Data book gives the same figures Cletis posted above. This is for the 1954 3800 series 1-ton Medium Duty Truck. The 8800 lb rating is for dual rear wheels, 7.00-18, 8 ply tires, and auxiliary rear springs. There was also a 7,000 GVW rating for 7.00-17, 6ply front tires and 7.50-17, 8ply rear tires.

The dual rear wheel option (8,800 lb GVW) is not shown for the 3804 (Pickup), 3805 (Panel), or 3807 (Canopy).

The 3805 1 ton Panel had a curb weight of 4360 lbs plus the weight of other options, such as upgraded versions (if installed) of springs, shocks, radiator, generator, auxiliary seat, and 7.50-17 tires and wheels (plus perhaps the weight of some of the fluids).

3808 = Platform (stake pocket rear - no rear fenders)
3809 = Stake (3808 with factory stake bed/sides)
