I narrowed it down to 1951-1953 GMC. Maybe a 3-ton truck ?

GMC made much heavier trucks than that. If this is a 3-Ton truck, I suspect it's the lightest truck this could possibly be.

UPDATE: My father is watching this now on TCM. Apparently the forensics unit thinks this is up to 10 tons. Then again, that could be in combination with the trailer and the load.

That actor in the passenger seat should look familiar to fans of trucking shows. Willliam Campbell appeared latter, again in a GMC known as a CANNONBALL -- The TV show was also known as CANNONBALL and ran starting in 1958. He played the part of Jerry Austin, sidekick to MIKE MALONE.

A 1947-55 GMC New Design truck, with a 1947-53 grille and 2-piece windshield. But nothing more to give a better model year, as no 1949+ cab-mounted fuel filler pipe (on the right side) nor 1951+ vent windows can be seen...

Due to the cab that is clearly not the "fat cab" of the heavy-duty trucks (3½-ton and above), this truck can be identified as "just" a medium-duty one: a model somewhere between the 1½-ton 300 and the 3-ton 450. But it could be any of these models, including the "small" 300:
