The chassis number would give you the plant it was made in ( I think ). Engine code and number would approximate to year at least.

If you dig around enough, you can probably find it on here:

I have seen similar pages for cars just don't have my files here with me.

No problem Phil.

There is a chassis number listing book, just don't have it here. Some of the pages are on those sites, but I only see the truck ones. In the unlikely event you have the original engine in it, post the number here. I think a 1941 Dodge would be a D11-xxxxx, or maybe a D12
