Heavy duty T-87 3-speed (optional model) or the Light Duty 3-speed? One is more valuable than the other.

Without seeing the gears and checking for teeth wear, especially the low rev slider, and the rev idler gear, and overall condition, its hard to say.

Your data plate in your truck should tell whether it is light duty or heavy duty.

Not on a 48. They didn't have data plates like that, then. Detailed data plates were introduced in September, 1951.The only way to tell light from heavy is physical inspection. The heavy duty is similar in size to a 4 speed. The light duty trans is tiny in comparison.

My bad! I didn't know that. In guess I should stick to questions about 53-56 trucks.

Exactly correct. The case can also be worn to the point of scrap. Without inspection, $50-$100 would be expected. If it were inspected, with good gears, bearings, seals, synchro's and no case wear, I would say $300 ish MAX
