There's a 1952 one and a half ton truck available in Belgrade Montana, near Bozeman.

It's difficult to tell, but it looks like it might have solid bones.

That does look in good condition for $1500.

Wouldn't the front bumper have been all white from the factory?
Looks like someone painted the center recess red at one time.

52-fan Looks like a nice truck but I would guess the road trip would take some time. Do a google maps and plan on about 45 miles per hour of drive time if your lucky.

Well, I do have friends in South Dakota............nope it's not going to happen, but if I had the money and time I would do it. :)
Belgrade is over 1500 miles from here. The trip would take at least 4 or 5 days (At 55MPH it used to take us a whole day to get from BelleFourche,SD to just out of the state), but would be quite an adventure. Of course, the purchase price could be a small part of the potential cost. :o

Lets hope it has a Commander six instead of a Champion six under the hood. :)

I'm not sure, but wouldn't all the ton and a half trucks only come with the commander engine?

My 1946 M-16 has the Commander engine.

It would be a 2R16A with the Commander engine.

Looks like no one answered your question. AFAIK, all (or at least all not special ordered) 2R trucks came with the two-color front bumpers. The center recess was painted body color and the ribs, off-white. There are also factory photos of the pre-production, prototype 3R trucks with the two-color front bumpers. However, that was changed, and production 3R trucks came with solid body-color bumpers.
