No, not unless the date is printed or the chassis number has /xx after it, but with this low number, it would seem to have been produced in May or June 1949.

The numbers were sequential up to 1951. From then on they added the "/year" to the end of the chassis and motor numbers.  As Craig stated, yours is a "very early" 1949 170S.  In 1949 they produced 3,409 170S models which was the first year and lowest production of the 170S versions.
