Hi I just got a DIVCO UM8 milke truck. I found a plate between two ribs of the truck. that has a Model number as UM8 and a serial number as 47376. How do I read this? and where is the vin number on the truck?
Frank, the Model UM-8 was built from 1947 to 1949. 5,788 units were built. Vehicles built back then only used serial numbers, there were no VIN numbers like todays vehicles. Some of the Divcos had the serial number stamped on a corner plate of the chassis, located on the passenger side of the truck in front of the engine but just behind the radiator.
