Post 1950 Chevy 3100

I recently purchased a (rough) 1950 series 3100 truck. How do I know for sure which engine it has? Whether it is the 235 I6 (as I was told), or the 216 stovebolt?? Help please.........

There are several different sites on the web to decode identification numbers. I don't remember what I used to find them for my 53 3100. Here is one site that might help <a href="http://www.stovebolt.com/casting.html" target="_blank">http://www.stovebolt.com/casting.html</a> and
