46 Ford Question

Looking at a 46 Ford truck, and the front end has two parallel leaf springs. Am i right in thinking this is a 3/4 or bigger truck? It's hard to see, buried up to the wheel hubs in leaf mold... It looks like it might have been a tow truck or a stake side... there is a tail gate, but not much left of any bed.. No real fenders either... the bed was wider than the running boards...


If this is a 3/4, would it have a larger than usual flathead?... The front end is all more or less there..


I thought Fords had a single leaf spring on the front, but this is like a Chevy.. there is a picture on my journal..
