Yes, there should be a keyed lock on the passenger door only...

I have owned one of these trucks for 37 years and have looked at, parted out, robbed from MANY of them. They only had a key cyl on the passenger side. I even have a pair of NOS latches, key cyl on passenger side only, I have a number of doors, key on passenger side only.


If you have seen one with a key cyl on the drivers door, it was added. And by the way, I plan on adding one to mine.

thanks brian can you tell me how to install the inside cab rubber on my 49 chevy pickup. it is the screw on type and also how to install the rubber between the cab and the running boards. thanks tyrone

What "Inside cab rubber"? The windlace isn't a screw on in a 49 the windlace slips over a piece of metal channel that runs around the doors. A 47-48 does have a piece of metal that goes over the top of the windlace to hold it in.

On the lower rubbers, the bottom ones are held on with a strip of metal that is goes over it with screws running thru it and the rubber into the bottom of the cab.

ok thanks brian according to the vin number i have an early 49 model they had two models that year

Just to be sure, look around the door opening on the inside. The late 49 (I personally have never seen this particular thing split mid year) and up would have a metal channel that is welded to the cab. It goes completely around the door opening. If there is no channel you would have a strip of metal that looks like a miniature version of the bed strips that go over the wood. This channel goes over the top of the rubber with screws going thru it. Of course the rubber is different from the early and the late.

Hi I have a eary 1949 chev p/u that has the screw on windlace around door
think back then what cabs were left from lasts years model they used for the next year untill they ran out

MARTINSR 03-29-2012 07:54 AM

Thanks Jed, I had never known of one that really existed. I have seen a 51 with the swing handles, they kept those around after the push button handles had been introduced.Funny thing about those that I have never heard anyone mention was that the cab was different where the striker bolted on. Yep, the cab was different from the swing handle to push button where the striker bolted, as the striker was different too. The 51 with swing handles that I found had "adapter" strikers! So there are swing handle strikers, push button strikers and the "adapters", there are three different strikers for these trucks.
