Keith, It's actually a 6500 which uses the conventional cab. It was used by one of the local fruit packers, Sno-Kist, here back in the day. I was going through eBay a week ago and found a 1954 COE, 5700 series, for sale in Montana with a dump bed that used to be stabled here in Selah, WA. You can see the difference. I posted the photo below on a local facebook page I belong to and the original owner's daughter recognized the truck. She said her father used it to haul apples and would dump them into a large washing tank at Tree Top where they would later be turned into apple juice. Since mine has a dump body as well, I assume it was used for the same purpose...although mine does have cable ratchets on either front side of the bed for securing apple / fruit bins to the bed.
