idk why but it looks too big to be a 1/2 ton.

Correct model name is 3100, which by itself implies a shortbed half ton.

The term "shortbox" is not part of the model name (in fact, it's is only referred to as a "box" in certain parts of the upper midwest - it's a "bed" everywhere else).

Weird mix: 1955-59 Chevrolet Task-force or GMC Blue Chip for sure, but:
• pickup, so normally a light-duty-model only;
• bumper of a 1955-59 Chevrolet / 1959 only GMC light-duty model;
front face of a 1955-57 Chevrolet medium/heavy-duty truck;
• what could be the fender emblem of a GMC truck... or the one of a 1955 only Chevrolet medium/heavy-duty model;
• hood of a GMC model.

One thing is sure: with so many space between the cab and the rear wheel arch, the bed is not the short one of a short ½-ton model, more likely the bed of a long ½-ton or of a ¾-ton model. Or maybe the longer one of a 1-ton pickup?
So a:
• A medium-duty Chevrolet truck transformed into a pickup, with a hood change?
• a crashed pickup from one of the two makes, which needed a new grille, fender and hood?
I'm leaning towards the second solution, as medium/heavy-duty models usually have dual rear wheels.

Chevrolet make used as default identification.
