I am looking for a 47-53. I found a 1951 3100 with 4 on the floor. So far all of the other 3100's I've seen have 3 on the column. Were 4 speeds on the floor only in the 3/4 & 1 ton trucks or did they come in half tons too?

Thanks

3-speed on the column was standard on the 1951 3100 (1/2-ton), 3600 & 3700 (3/4-ton).  4-speed on the floor was optional on the 1/2 ton & 3/4 ton and standard on the 1-ton (3800 & 3900) and 1 1/2 ton (4000 & 5000). I have a 51 3100 with a 4-speed on the floor that I am currently working on.  Good luck!  Cool
