Post 1952 Chevy Delux - Caster setting?

First post. Read the rules and searched the BB with no luck so here's my question:

I have a 1952 Chevy Deluxe 4Door sedan that I am re-building (with some help). I am on the front end now and don't know the caster settings for this kind of car. I understand the basics about caster but I was wondering if one of you experts might know the "factory" settings for my '52.

Thanks.

i've got this ancient book that covers most early models of cars from '35 to '49.

anyway, for '49 it says caster is +1/2deg, camber is +1/2deg. toe-in is 1/16"

i think your car should be the same because this was the only year listed with these numbers so i think they just made the change to these #s.

hope this helps.
