I believe you may find that 3406D 10023 is a 1963 Model Year J330 4WD 6 cyl cab and chassis with an 8600 Lb .
10023 is the 23rd of the 140 they built for 1963 Model Year.
Engine stamp would be TD60C -10,XXX
Thank You Keith, Dug more of it out of the barn and it is a dually with bud rims flatbed with a headache rack,front bumber winch, On the sides it says J300.Looks pretty original and complete shows 42,000 on speedometer,4 speed with Tornado engine..Cab is good other than the floors are rusty the plates show 1976.Might be worth fixing up again????

The "D" suffix designated 8600 GVW, which requires duallies, so I would say all 140.
I don't know, but that could have been the total that included both right and left hand drive instead,
I don't have information to prove one way or the other except that it was no greater than 140, could have been less.

I have a '67 Dually "Z" Code. from my research I doubt that there is 140 of any year left. My grandson is doing a frame off rebuild with the Buick 350, Turbo 400 Jeep Gear Train going back in it.
