Did you look to see if there is a serial number on the frame infront of the drivers side tire? That might give us a clue.

Hi Yooni
Mate as ken said look on the left hand chassis (frame) rail in front or behind the front tyre if you can find that number we may be able to best guess a date or look inside the cab on the right hand side of the dash for a plate there with a delivery date
Cheers

Both trucks are Lend-lease vehicles
First one is 4x6 no winch
Serial number plate is missing no original plates in the cab

Second one 6x6 with winch
(Gal wood winch in my opinion originally mount)
Serial number plate is missing no plates in the cab
But there is number on frame 4/4 452771 (or 4/4 457771) but I don’t think that it is original.

We have also plate from third vehicle very destroyed number probably is US6X4 60251

Is there a way to identify which model the truck is with the chassis number?

It is very hard to do with out the dash plate. but if you look at drive transit and how the frame is set up it can give you some possible clues
