Is there a website where I can find out frame lengths and years built according to their production numbers? Thank you!

This might help. Scroll down just past half way n the page for dimensions.

I believe the short answer on unaltered frames is 125" for all years. For dates of engine serial numbers look here: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/sernos.htm

Beginning December 10, 1925, engine serial numbers were stamped on car frames (top of frame rail under floor boards, usually on the right side). I don't know if that applies to trucks too.

Go to the link provided by Gary, scroll down and you'll see the chassis dimensions. According to Bruce McCalley's book, total Truck production numbers by calendar year are:

1917-3
1918-41,105
1919-70,816
1920-Unclear to me
1921-69,004
1922-140,867
1923-197,057
1924-272,624
1925-321,348
1926-228,496
1927-83,202

In the book truck production is broken down by U.S. location, foreign location, body type, and "Truck" vs. "Truck Starter". The data is not recorded on a consistent manner for each year, so it gets a little confusing.

In his post above, Steve said he doesn't know if the engine number was stamped on the frame rail of TT trucks like the cars.

The answer is yes, the TT's have the engine number stamped on the frame rail the same as the cars, beginning at the same time.

I have seen and examined several TT's with the frame number.
