Part numbers alone a partial answer...never forget the rivet count..the washers, drive screws, every bolt and of course all those Nuts

There are 2,351 unique part numbers (n.b. I used "Section I, which is 1948-51), but one would have to add up the quantities for each part number on each page to obtain a total amount; for instance, on P.41, there's 1x "cylinder block assembly" 230845, but 16x "set bolt (1/4" x 5/8" long) fixing washer cover plate" 215053.

But stay on your toes! Part numbers for the rivets for the side capping on the tailgate are "rivet" 300783, "pop rivet, short" 300919, and "pop rivet, long" 300969 ... 16x, 20x, and 4x, respectively. However, part numbers for the rivets for the side retainers are "pop rivet, short" 300781, and "pop rivet, long" 300782 ... 10x and 4x, respectively. so a "rivet" isn't just a generic rivet :-)

A *highly* unscientific scrolling through the whole catalog appears to indicate an average of about 3x per component (the mode is clearly 1x), so 2,351 x 3 = 7,053.
