Default Need help identifying Dodge HD Truck and Engine

Hi! This is my first post on this board. My understanding of the 413 flathead six is that it was only used in Dodge trucks for 1 year, 1954. They were a force to be reckoned with from what I've been told. My Grandfather owned one and, believe it or not, other truck drivers would come to my Grandfather and offer to run loads for free to get a chance to drive it. Nothing slowed it down, full load, hills, nothing. It was the only one in the area. Another man would borrow it from time to time if his truck was down for any reason. Even he said it was the fastest thing on the road. . The grillwork on the fenders was supposed to signify it was a 413, 6 cyl. Here is a pic if it when it was new, hope it comes through. It was sold to a company around 1960 that hauled mail. The truck, at that time, had around 200,000 miles on it.
