Rascal; I have a 49-F7 "Grain Truck". Henry only built about 418 in 49.
yours appears to be a F8 because of the "Cleated Wheels".
The only difference is "F8 is Cleated" or "F7 is Bud" wheels. I changed
my "Suicide" split Rims over to one piece "20 inch - Two ton Chev" rims.
The original engine was the "Big-Ole Bus Flat Head Engine". It was past repair.
I installed a 429, and used the original 5 Speed Over Drive. I bit the Bullit, and
payed the price for the "new" wheel cylinders, relined the Shoes, and had
the Remote Brake Booster rebuilt.
I like Brakes that Work.
I Painted the truck Black, Chromed the Grill and other Goodies.
I just Love this old Truck.
I now also have a 49 F5 Grain Truck.
It only has 31k miles and is all "Henry". I still use this truck.
Bob
