Just a couple of photos of the dash in my 53 one ton. Wanted to get them to Rabaut, but couldn't figure out how to send them on private message. Hope this isn't a violation of the rules.

I am currently digging back in to a 1953 3800 (one ton) with a nine foot bed. I've owned it since 1979, and drove it until 1982 (or so). My wife got me involved in restoring it back in 2002, got the body removed and the frame redone, then things came up. Now I am retired and starting again. If anyone is interested I have photos on Imagur ( https://timwhiteblues.imgur.com/ ). I live way back in the woods in the Ozarks on 40 acres at the end of a 2 1/2 mile private road.

Looks nice! That looks similar to the paint I'm using for the interior. Mine seems to be slightly less taupe in color, though. I used a Ford exterior color and had them reduce the green tint to make it more of a champagne tint plus I had them de-gloss it.

The paint is Rustoleum 7272 Dark Bronze Metallic. It was as close as I could find to match the original color.

I took the same rustoleum advice and I am glad I did. Im 100% happy with the color and when I pop the glovebox door it is a VERY close match.

Questions please - is that the same stock interior color as a ‘51?
Is the lower 2/3 of the interior door the same color?
In many pics, I have also seen the the jambs painted that same color as well - is that stock as well please?

The stock interior color is supposed to be Cambridge Gray (left chip of the attached, but probably hard to get to look correct on a computer monitor.) The Rustoleum color mentioned is probably a very close match.
The inside of the doors and jambs were painted interior color. The demarkation between outside color and interior color is at the weatherstripping.
