Hello and Help Please!

I recently purchased my 1956 GMC 450 "Stub Nose" COE (I hope that I am describing my truck correctly). I was told that it is a 2 Ton but I don't really know. I have been unable to find photos or any other information about this particular truck on the internet. I would like to see photos of this model as well as buy a repair manual if at all possible. Can anyone help me?

Phil

Actually Big Truck, that 450 series, is a 3 ton truck. 350 series was a 2 ton. And it's also actually a, "LCF" (Low Cab Forward). If it looks like these trucks here, http://www.classiccoe.com/oldcoetrucks/5459.htm

Thanks much Spanky. I shall probably have other questions for you along the way. I haven't taken any pictures of my '56 LCF as yet but I will just as soon as possible. My truck has 1 rear window, 2 side windows, 2 door windows, and a front window. There are 6 total. I looked but I didn't see any with the window configuration. Is it unusual to have a cab with 6 windows?

That configuration is known as a five window, the windshield isn't included in the count.

Hey you Oregon guys. There's a big green cab over GMC along I5 near Goshen that I heard someone could get for nothing. It's got a box on it. Matter a fact I took a picture of it I could email to someone.
