Clutch or Transmission Problem???

I have a 1952 3100 5 window I am restoring. It was running fine but recently when I try to back up, it is almost like it locked up. Not sure if it is a sticky clutch (4-speed on the floor). Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated. I would like to figure it out and get it fixed before I put it back together.

Can you move it forward? If so, it wouldn't be a clutch problem. And also not necessarily a transmission problem.
I would look at brakes. Possibly one of the shoes has stuck to the drum and won't let it turn.

I would also suspect a brake problem.

Drop the rear end cover plate and inspect the cross pin that holds the spider gears in place. If the lock bolt for that pin breaks or backs out, the pin can slide out and lock up against the rear end housing. You'll be able to get a little movement, but considerably less than half a turn of the rear wheels.

All good suggestions already posted. But the question i have is. With the truck in neutral, will it roll then? If not, its probably differential or brake issues as mentioned.
