Additional Data On VIN Plates

I have viewed the Tech Page located at: https://www.stovebolt.com/techtips/identification/Series/#fifty
for information on the VIN Plate of a truck I put a deposit on. It was helpful to help me decipher the VIN. However, there are 3 additional codes on the this plate that I was hoping one of you could educate me on. If I knew what these codes were, then I could search for "Option Codes" "Paint Codes" or "Engine Codes" etc., but I have no idea what I am looking at. Just typing the codes into the search here didn't yield any results and I got nothing when I tried websearch as well.

I attached a photo with the codes to this post. But in case you can't see it, "MTC" is stamped in the upper right corner of the plate and "C51" and "232" is stamped right above the VIN number.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Guys!
Scott

My data Plate has the same C51 stamped on it followed by 76 instead of 232. Since both the truck you're looking at and mine are '51's, the 51 may be the year of production "in the clear" as opposed to the J date code. A '50 2-ton I looked at didn't have the extra characters above the serial number.

I think the MTC stamped on yours was not done at the factory, but sometime afterward (maybe by a dealer?)

Good Point Kevin on the C51 statement. Hopefully someone who's a die hard Stovebolter can shed some light on this for us.
