I am looking at a 1954 1 ton. I have only seen pictures and I am in the process of scheduling a visit to view the truck. The pictures shows it has a bed not currently on the vehicle. I assume a 1 ton is a long bed? Are there any other major differences? Are body parts interchangeable?

Some 1 Tons had the extra long 9ft bed. I don't think they went to bigger front fenders and wider hood till the 1.5T. Others will know. Cab parts are same.

1 ton front end sheet metal should be the same as well.

The running boards, aprons, front bed panel, and bedsides are all unique to the one ton. The cab and front end sheet metal are the same as 1/2 and 3/4 ton

Don't forget bumpers and bumper brackets -- unique to 1-tons.

The 3800 radiator support is also different from the 3100 and 3600 trucks.
