I Looked at the tag again. Now I think that it says LG 42

We are attempting to use the rear axle from the Dodge for another project. I need help sourcing brake parts for it. Was there a Model LC 42? The wheel cylinder some writing on it.

It also had a large letter R stamped on it and I'm pretty sure that it was on the right side of the truck.

Did Dodge make cabless trucks for the military etc.? Look here to see pics of my old Dodge truck http://groups.msn.com/Racerpics/dodge.msnw You can see that it has been fitted with a Diamond T cab. I think that the truck looks pretty neat this way and it is a testament to the old boys doing whatever it takes to get the job done. I always assumed that the original Dodge cab was wrecked and then the Diamond T cab was fitted. A visitor pionted out that maybe the Dodge never had a cab. What do you think?

Andy, I'm not sure if there were any "cabless" military Dodges in the '30's, but I've found a couple of photos of pre-war open cab Dodge military trucks, one 2 wheel drive, the others are 4x4. All the Dodge military trucks had grill guards like in the 1st photo, so you might look for remnants of it on your frame. These trucks are very rare today.
All of the truck manufacturers back then built "cowl only" models with no cabs for installation of special bodies such as buses and moving vans, etc. If your oilfield-type body is original it seems more likely that the original cab was wrecked and they replaced it with whatever was handy.

Thanks for the pictures. Did they happen to have model numbers in that book? mine has LG-42 on the tag and no one seems to have heard of it. The Dodge cab and cowl are in place. It has Dodge gauges and steering wheel as well as pedals. I have no way of knowing long the bed has been on it but it is clearly shop built and VERY heavy. The truck is a 2 wheel drive model.

Andy, here's a page from the Crestline "Dodge Trucks" book. It doesn't show the LG, but does show the LE, LF, & LH. My guess is the LG was a 2 ton and the LH was a heavier duty 2 ton. The "L" makes it a 1936 model (K='35, M='37, etc). The 42 would have been a code for the wheelbase.
Just something else to think about, but is it possible your truck started out life as an open cab fire truck ?
