From what I can see in the picture, it looks to be in decent shape. If it were me, I would pull it out and inspect the whole thing. But from where I see it now, I would take the time and fix it up. Not to many of them around, especially 44's due to the war effort. As far as value, its only worth what someone will pay for it. Especially if it has a title or not. But the parts alone are probably worth more than if you took it to the scrap yard. Not sure the condition of the jailbars, but those are one of the hardest things to find. In fact, if you do decide to part it out, please let me know as I have a 1 1/2 ton I am going to be redoing and need stuff like the jailbars and a few other parts.

I am looking for a straight front bumper - blade only - if you decide to 'liberate' the truck.

Everybody with 42-47's is looking for grille bars ! Myself included!

I realize your original post is older, but I figured I'd send you a note on the off chance you are selling parts from this truck.

I'm looking for a toggle-type ignition switch, which Ford used from the middle of WWII until the end.

It is located right next to the temp gauge in this reference shot:

If you have this switch and would like to sell it, feel free to send me a PM.

Thank you.

All (or nearly all after 1941) WW2 vehicles used this switch. Try Vintage Power Wagons, or G503, or similar sites. Shouldn't be too hard to find one. You can get these new, I think I got one at a large truck parts place. It was chromed, and had some numbers on it, but after a date with a wire wheel on a grinder, and some filing, it was ready for od paint.
