    Those are just frame numbers if memory serves me right. The actual VIN stamping on the frame should be on the TOP of the frame rail.

    i grew up on 67-72 trucks, i made myself learn everything

    vin code is on spid label and on door jamb plate, last half of vin is on frame rails, some are behind steering box on top sid eof frame either on pass side or driver side frame rail and others are on top side of rails under floor and youll never see them but none are going to help you in this case since is only last half

    model code is written at way top of firewall on pass side just above wirign gutter underhood in grease pen, white or black or yellow grease.

    if its a 2wd 6 cyl shortfleet then it will be a CS10734 model
    this s NOT same as VIN code

    vin of a 2wd 6 cyl pickup will be CS148J1xxxxx

    the J can be anything, all depends on what plant it was built at

    if truck is factory v8 truck then it wil be CE instead of CS

    if its really a 4x4 then it wil be KS if is 6cyl and KE if is V8


    if it were 72 up 2wd then it would be CCE or CCS

    2x4 does not exist, a 2wd is actually a 4x2, not a dimension of those pieces of lumber commonly used as wall studs

    the numbver you found on frame rails is the stamping GM part numbe rof the frame rails, several different lengths and designs of frame rails were made each model year, some were leaf rear rails and some were coil rear rails, but they were actualyl all the same for 1/2 and 3/4 ton 2wd's, except 68-72 longhorns in which were all straight rail 1 ton frames even the C20 series longhorns!

    post all the actual model or vin codes you find and also where you found each one at on the truck, and i will help you
