3414 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
P Series. With dual rears could be a heavy duty P350, a P400, or possibly P500.

I Was Thinking It Was The P400.
Any Other Info On These Series Would Be Much Helpful
Thanks Again:
Mike

Welcome To The Site.

I think, (just me) that you should buy a shop manual and parts book (if available) and find any data / information plates attached to the truck.

Well It’s Not As Ugly As This One; (Mike, it’s really hard work typing the caps on every letter isn’t).

That looks more like a milk truck than a bread truck.

The same body style was used all the way up into the 60s or 70s, I believe. Only minor changes were made, like the grilles and drivetrain.

What style instrument clusters does it have? I'm thinking 51/52 style.

I once parted out a 52 P4 van just like yours. I took the engine, instrument clusters, windshield wiper motor and linkage, and grille assembly.

That style grille was used from 1955 for many years up into the 60's. I don;t know for sure how long. It looks like the 55 F-100 but is a long shorter in width. They used the 53 style grille in '53 and '54.

I used to work on those trucks back in the 80's for Rainbo Bread. The primer on the side looks like the shape of Rainbo decal. I used to put those on also. The 50's 60's and 70's. The grill on that looks different than what we ran but I do not remember if they had Gruman Olsen bodys on the early models. ( probably Ford ) They ran the aluminum runners on the inside and the panels are aluminum. The later models did run Gruman Olsen bodys. Everything on that truck is the same as I remember it. We had all the original parts and things were still cheap!!!! Who Knew we would one day be saying I sure would like to have those parts in the original boxes. Just blows me away!!!!!

I have been looking for years for an old step van and this caught my eye. Is it something that is available (Old F1)? It appears to be from the 30/40's. I am trying to recreate one of the delivery trucks my grandfather used to have. Buchan Baking Company

Looks like there is a chocolate elephant painted on the side.

Hi, Welcome to the site, post your location, someone close to you might have something.

Not sure this is much help………. I have that picture tagged as a 1950 Milk truck and I think (?) it came from this site but not sure who from. I think if you want more info on it you should do a new post with the picture, tagging on to old threads often gets missed but most new posts get read.
