    Do you mean 3100? I've never heard of a 4100 before unless of course that happens to be what they call the 3/4 ton trucks. At any rate the cab is the same from 1949-1953 IIRC. I used to own every year of those trucks from 1949-1954.

    Nope! Not 3100. It's a 4100 That's what it states on the side of the hood. It's a fuel oil truck just guessing I would say 1 1/2 ton?

    there's been one i've seen off and on ebay several times over the last couple months in new jersey, guy had a truck he was wanting to restore and just never got around to it.... used to me an old delivery truck or some such - one of the big ones with the 2spd rear axle, sounds like what you'd be looking for if he still has it/you can find it.....

    There is a junk yard near me that has 3-4 of those model trucks, some flatbeds and a few dump trucks.

    4100 would be a 1 ton. 3600s were 3/4 tons.

    I'm sure there are a lot of them (compared to other area's anyway) sitting in fields and back country lots in Central Oregon and Eastern Washington... I just don't know exactly where to find one right now.

    Have you tried www.stovebolt.com yet?

    They even have a forum specifically for the larger truck called "Big bolts".
