These trucks are in the 5000 series, so it's either a 5100, 5400, or 5700. But the wheelbase on this doesn't look short enough to be a 5100.

This is a Cab-Over-Engine model from the 1947-55 Advance-Design truck line. All COE of that era were 5000-Series, so having both in complement is redundant. As already said by Ddey65: 5100 to 5700, depending on the wheelbase.

Some more details given by the picture:
• As Advance-Design COE stake, it can't be a 5700, whatever the model year is. The 5100 stake is only possible as 1947-48 MY;
• This stake is a High Rack one (66.125"/1.68 m high stake sides), which was only possible on a 1947-50 5400 basis. The Chevrolet code for this model was 5419 (see the previous link).
(To be as precise as possible, there is also a 5419S model, where the "S" stands for "Special": as far as I understand, 5000S-Series and 6000S-Series were 1½-ton only models with all internal specs of the 2-ton ones. But I think they were anecdotal models, as the literature about these "light heavy-duty models" is almost nonexistent)

Nothing in this picture can help us to give this truck more than the 1947 default year: 1947-49 heavy-duty models were not identified with the 4100 to 6700 numbers, the generic Loadmaster name was used instead.

(if we want the COE cab to be more highlighted than with just the chassis code?)
