Just about everything should. If your truck is an "Early '49" things 
like the headliner (if it is still there in the 51) and the seal around 
the doors were different. Of course the doors are different, the 51 
having the vent glass and the 51 also doesn't have a side cowl vent. 
Also the shocks are different on the 51. 

Hope this helps.
