Alexander wrote It is the Chevrolet 3116, 1½-ton, 4x2.

3116 Chevrolet inner code was for the end-gate models Suburbans from the 1946-47 Art Deco, 1947-55 Advance-Design and 1955-59 Task-Force trucks line;
• 1½-ton panels from the Art Deco trucks line had dual rear wheels, but this model apparently existed only for the 1946-47 Art Deco MYs (Cf. page 44 of the 1946 Chevrolet Truck Data book for Chevrolet salesmen - Pdf, 189 pages, 350 Mb), and the pictures of "our" truck don't allow to see anything about this. Moreover, the movie was released in 1945...
4x2??? Is it a 1942-45 military models spec?

This truck is for sure a panel, and as it is almost impossible to tell the difference between 1941 to 1947 models, we should indeed give this panel the 1941 default model year. 4 models of panels were available this year (Cf. this 1941 brochure - Pdf, 28.8 Mb):
- Light-delivery panel (115"/2.92 m wheelbase, 197.9"/5.03 m long, ½-ton payload),
- ¾-ton panel (125.25"/3.18 m wheelbase, 209.6"/5.32 m long, ¾-ton payload),
- ¾-ton long wheelbase panel (134.5"/3.42 m wheelbase, 227.7"/5.78 m long, ¾-ton payload),
- Heavy-duty panel (134.5"/3.42 m wheelbase, 224.75"/5.71 m long, 1-ton payload).
(All dimensions come from pages 15 & 16 of the "Unit Designed Chevrolet Truck Bodies" - Pdf, 10.1 Mb)

Can anyone say which model is "our" panel? If not, shouldn't it just be identified as a:

⇒ 1941 Chevrolet Panel?
