Where VT445 isn't in Leo's book, you might want to let him know when you get it appart & measured.

The C3 would indicate late '55 to '56. The K would indicate 259 poly or 270 Hemi. 8=8 cyl. The block stamping nos. would {VT445 1094C} would indicate that it was a Canadain model or shipped to Canada.

I found a 54 farm truck with the same stamping VT445, and the info I got was the same as 51 coupe's. 259 poly or 270 Hemi, Joe.
