weather stripping

I don't know if this belongs here or on the body discussion department. I need to buy and install door weather stripping for my '46 Chevy truck. I've found several suppliers (all for '47 and up of course) and they offer kits that attach to the body or the doors. I have no idea what the original truck came with. Which is best? Any tips? Thanks...

Unlike passenger cars, all the car companies built pickup trucks thoughout the war years. The 1947 Chevy trucks were the first new body style since before the war. My guess is that there was no weatherstripping on the '41 through 46 Chevy trucks, just windlace, which is why you can't find any. I don't see why the weatherstripping for a '47 wouldn't work on a '46, though.

I'm sure there are guys here that know the exact answer to your question, I'm just guessing. I need weatherstripping for my '48 Chevy coupe, so I'm interested in the answers you get.
