I wonder if the parts panel we have had an issue at one point in time so they reverted to the replacement with either an old style or simply built some wood and strips to "make do".

So the Panel Truck and Canopy Express got the one-piece floor in 1950, but there is no mention of the Suburban getting it that year. So perhaps the respective body styles DID get them in different years?

From the pics you posted the bodies REALLY WERE built around the floors! I suspect few of us would go to that level of disassembly to install a floor the way the factory did it.

1951 - Doors now have vent windows. Mid-year change from 9-board bed to 8 boards per bed.

Now that we're hijacking the OP's thread...

The above is regarding pickups. However my panel truck floor has 11 boards. Is this normal or has someone replaced/modified it sometime in it's history?

11!! Wow. I'm looking at 4 or 5 in my parts truck so I'm guessing (not just since it is a 53) that this isn't original! I'll go check it out later this morning.

Eleven board panel truck floor (below). This is from a survivor original '49 panel currently on Ebay:
