The answer is yes. They were serial numbered BNO 40 XXX or BNO 25 XXX Nobody knows what BNO stands for. The serial numbers are in the usual place on the 2N block.
The 40's had dual rear wheels and a higher rated towing capacity, and were weighted up to 4,000 lbs.
The 25's weighed 2500 lbs - about what a regular 2N weighed, and had single rear wheels.
There were differences in gear ratios between the two, also.
A real rarity would be the BNO S 40's or BNO S 25's. These were supplied from the factory with solid iron wheels and solid tires. I have only heard of one of these still in existence.
