if its really a forward control and is 1 ton weight rating then it would be a P-30

C is conventional cab models, IE pickups for example

a P30 was usually a common ordinary 1 ton step van though.

and then there were some other and rare models such as cowl windshield that some buses and other thins were built from

i dont remember the model code of the cowl windshield models
