Yours is probably a late year 1951 build.

To the question on stock tire diameter, a 7.50 x 16" as was original to the truck is 32" tall. If you want radials a 235/85R16" is close. Stu

Bolt pattern is 6 x 7.25" circle. An F-450 would have a 10 x 7.25" so you might have luck having adapters made. At least up front since adapting modern steering is a challenge. On a rear axle swap...
