40-47 Ford Cab ID

I bought a Ford cab for a rat project without Title/Ownership. I was told it was a 41. Is there any way to verify that it is a 41? We're there any changes from 40-41 pr 46-47? Does not really matter, just when I get a new Ownership, I have to claim the year.

early Fords

You can go to the Early Ford V-8 club site. They have pictures of trucks there . The Front Clip changed from 40 to 41 but I don't know about the Cab differences, We have a 46 farm truck project out in a couple feet of snow. Ours came with a Y block Lincoln installed> I don't know if they have an Id tag on the firewall or somewher else. I think some vehicles had a tag in the glove box. If you sign up For the V 8 club, be aware that some of the guys get upset that you are not doing a restoration. Ask your questions carefully ! !

During the war years..41 to 47 there were very little changes in domestic cars and trucks..So yours could be anything in there..

40-47 Ford cab ID

Yes ,I realize that automobile production was halted from 1942- 1947 with no autos rolling off the assembly line. I know that they did continue military truck production during those years and that was what I was interested in finding out about. I wasn't sure if subtle changes had been made. I do know that there are differences regarding running boards and fender mounting between the 40 and 41. So I guess I can just declare my truck as a 41 to the motor vehicle office.

war time trucks

we still have 2 old chevy farm trucks a 45 and 46 and a brother=in=law got rid of a 44, All are painted army green It took a lot of paperwork for grandpa to prove that he needed a new one during the war years. And there is a military truck in town that has a basic chevy cab, with the heavy flat front fenders and military grill with a cow catcher , My son bought a couple of mid 40's International KB large logging truck cabs Military green. , he was thinking of doing a rat project a while back

I'm sure that green was the colour from 1942-47 on every truck that rolled off the assembly line. Maybe a few black ones to.

There is no way to tell the year from the cab. All the dated info was either on the frame or motor...

I just found out that a 40 cab has the script pressed into the dash. A 41 has two small holes in the same area where the script is mounted on a separate piece and attached to the dash.
