Help ID HEMI in '52 Stake Truck

The individual tells me that the motor says V1344-1314 on the pad.
He's pretty sure the motor's been in the truck at least 30 years now.

I don't see the serial number in any of my documents. Does anyone
have any information on this? Let me know, thanks!

If it's actually VT344 it's a 259 Poly block. If it was the original engine the only hemi in '52 was a 331.

If the truck in pic parked in shed is the one in question I believe it is a 1955 1 piece windshield gives it away
along with the design of the hood. Tom

The above posting was a previous person asking about VT344. Very interesting.
