Maybe the same as: [Image: Help13.jpg] [Image: Help12.jpg]
GMC/Chevrolet?
Mirror looks like an anachronism.

1947-50, then. Cf. "1947 2nd-Series" passage in the GMC truck history (Pdf - p. 20).
With a picture of the right side of the cab (a little more closer than the 3rd pic of vilero :) ), it would be possible to say if it is a 49+ model, with the gas tank filler behind the passenger seat (or in the chassis, for 1947-48 models)...

Just Pickup ? There is no equivalent name to Chevrolet's Advance-Design name?
edit: it was renamed to "New Design" following the new names given on the forum

Thanks for the "New Design" name. I think we can trust Tim Lederman when he calls these trucks that way, due to the huge amount of work he did on the 1947-55 GM trucks.

Given the 1947-50 possible MY, and if I understand the technical data sheets and the 1950 brochure, 1947-50 pickups were FC-101 (116" -2.95 m- wheelbase, ½-ton payload), FC-102 or FC-152 (125.25" -3.18 m- wb, 1st ½-ton, 2nd ¾-ton payload) or FC-253 (137" -3.48 m- wb, 1-ton payload) models.
It was certainly too easy, these numbers changed in 1951. And in 1954 again :D

So my guess (no irrefutable clue for it), with what can be seen in 3rd thumb of vilero and seems to be a very long bed, is that this pickup is a 137"/3.48 m wb FC-250 one, which means a [FC-253] chassis code. But how to be sure of an only 12" / 30 cm difference in the wheelbase with such a view?

or, if unsure of the length:

Some years later...
1947-48 grille. The model codes changed in 1951, so FC-253 is the good one.
