Default !950 F1 rear ratio

How do I find the rear ratio on a 1950 F1 pickup? My last inquire was on serial number on frame on this truck, I found it on the right front frame rail about 6 to 8" back from the radiator. Thanks.

Did you check for a little metal tag bolted to the pumpkin?

With an open driveshaft it is fairly easy. Mark the tire and mark the driveshaft. Slowly move the vehicle and count the driveshaft rotations per one full rotation of the tire.
