Is there really a 1950 Chevrolet truck, series 2500?
I'm looking at buying an old truck to tinker with, however the seller is calling it a 1950 C/K 2500 pickup truck. Now I don't know much about these things, and don't have the VIN number, or access to it at the moment. I did a search online and found more than a few trucks which are labelled the same, but all the information gives only series 3100, 3600, 3700 etc. This truck is in Canada, so maybe there are different series here? Does anyone have an answer for me?

I have a 1950 Chev 3/4 ton and recently bought a reproduction Chevrolet Truck Shop Manual for 1948-1953. The "Model Designations" section in the front of the manual indicates 1948 model designations of Thriftmaster (1/2 to 1 ton) and Loadmaster (1-1/2 to 2 tons), and 1949-1951 designations of 3100 (1/2 ton), 3600 (3/4 ton), 3742 (3/4 ton Forward Control), 3800 (1 ton), 3802 (1 ton school bus chassis), 3942 (1 ton Forward Control), 4100 & 4400 (1-1/2 ton), 4502 (1-1/2 ton school bus chassis), 5100 & 5400 & 5700 (2 ton cabover), 6100 & 6400 & 6500 (2 ton), and 6702 (2 ton school bus chassis). I don't believe C1500 & C2500 (2-wheel drive) and K1500 & K2500 (4-wheel drive) came into use till later years.
