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

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.

Will do. I am located just 'down the street' from you in NW WA State. Thanks. Here is one of the trucks from my families bakery. I am trying to recreate several, the older the better.
