With a consecutive unit number being this high, it's most likely a late '50 model, and if it is the bed would be correct for the truck. The tailgate change corresponds with the side change as the...

What kind of seats do you have? I'm guessing they're not stock and this is a broken adjuster/slide/return spring, and the plastic surround is a guard or noise reducer.

R=239 V8
1=1951
KC=Kansas...
