Subject: 56 F100 Serial #'s Help

Today I looked at a '56 F100 with 4 wheel drive that the seller thought
was a Marmon Harrington unit.  Upon closer inspection, it appeared to me
that the frame and 4 wheel drive were out of a mid 60's pickup.  The
only tags I could find on the transfer case were marked as follows:

Serial # 416374
Model 24
B/M 300205

The front knuckles were totally enclosed with no u-joints showing.
There are warn hubs in the front axles.  The 4 speed transmission has a
parking brake on the rear of it which I believe is out of a big truck.
The rear end has no rear cover plate and a very oval shape compared to
the round shape I'm used to seeing on Ford 9"  Also, the steering box is
mounted on the frame with which appears to be factory notched area with
a u-joint to fasten to the steering shaft which I believe is not correct
for a 56.

As far as the cab is concerned, it had no M/H marker plate and has the
following ID#'s on the Factory ID plate:
WB = 110
Color = W

Could someone decode it for me.  I know that the F10 stands for F100,
and the 35874 is the sequential #.  I believe 110 was the short

Thanks for your assistance.
