1950-53 Big Bolt cab sizes

Hi All,
I'm more familiar with the '55 & up models. So today's question, simply put is this. When it comes to the '50-'53 GMC Big Bolts, when comparing the cab of the 410 to say a 600, are they interchangeable... exact size? If so, with which model do they differ? 620? 630? Using my eyeballs, it looks like the 600-620 are the same size as the 410 and the 630 is the first one to differ in size. Is this correct? Or am I missing something??

Thanks,
Stan

Hy Stan Yedlowski, welcome, the cabs are the same pickup to 600 series, trucks 700 series and above used the "Fatboy cab". The easiest way to tell the cabs apart, on the small cabs the doors roll under at the bottom, the Fatboy cabs doors are just flat, they do not roll under at the bottom of the doors. Hope that helps.

3B, is correct on the conventional cab trucks. On the Cabover Engine (COE) side, the "Fatcab" was used on 500-900 series.
