Regretfully I am looking at selling my 1951 3100 5 window, all original no rust, 216 with 4 speed, factory spot lights and just a few dents and wear from 20+ years on the farm. It has been in storage since 1971 and in pretty great shape. Question is it has a wooden Omaha standard box on it with all the accessories, extra panels, different rear gates, original hardware and even two matching hay bale hooks. Just looking to see if anyone has seen anything like this before and potential value. Just looking for info at this point. Thank you in advance!

You brought back memories with this! I have not seen one of those boxes in a long long time!

When I was a kid, my Dad had a similar box setup on the '53 3100. He would put two sale calves in the box on the truck, then another two sale calves in a small single axle bumper hitch trailer and took them to the local livestock sale barn. When the watermelons or pumpkins were ripe, he would stack the box full and drive the 65 miles to the farmers market near downtown Houston.

What is with that same looking logo/character, we see in the 3rd, 4th & 5th image? Otherwise, a very nice looking truck with stout bed boxes.

If you're asking about those "pinstripe" type things--That was common to put those on boxes of that era. The big trucks with grain boxes had those as well. Just the factory's way of dressing them up a little. The factory did that--those were not added later.

That box set up is really cool. City folks might not appreciate it, but those of us with a farm background can relate to it. Hopefully you can find a good home for that box and don't end up scrapping it out.
