I assume you found your parts.. I just acquired a complete 42 (I believe) according to the numbers on the frame and I have extra parts ... I was going to Hot Rod it and leave off fenders hood etc........Let me know if you are still looking as I have two other projects and I may have to abandon this one and put it up for sale.....
Can u send me a pic of your fender (the one u want to match) and I will take a pic of mine today and see if they match yours .. .for some reason "at first glance" mine looked like my 41 Ford fenders ... are they the same? I have both running boards also... Two sets of doors but they are from different years and I will find out which ones fit my truk .... This is truly a treasure hunt because I am just now picking up some of the parts and will get the rest of the truck when I make more room ...... (the never ending story.. right?).... btw are you restoring to original ? Caroholic Mic
I bought the truk from a friend named Michael .. My name is Michael and of course looks like your name is Michael .. Hmmmm interesting ...

I loaded the fenders, hoods and running boards today and will bring them home and take the appropriate pics.....
Do you or "anyone else" have pics that would help determine if infact the body is also a ... '42 ... I had a '41 for almost 30 years and the cab similarities are very very close but the entire front clip is totally different.
The bed is 6 feet long (approx) and the rear fenders are similar to '41 buuut ?? Maybe you could send dimensions ... I also had a '46 and was told that this was a '46 but after running the numbers on the frame (at least) appears to be a '42 .... After looking at the 18 year old kids blue bomb pics the parts look like his '42 .... of course his is pretty awesome ....
Haven't seen the pics yet ? Will attempt to send some of mine later..... Caroholic Mic
I go by Mic tks
I have a 1941 ford 1/2 ton Marmon-Herrington and of course the 1942 that I am working on. I would guess they are the same cabs. However, I have always wondered and never put the two side by side. I will try to do this on Saturday.
For as far as the rear box, I am fairly sure that in 1942, the width of the box was widened to accept a standard 48" panel.
If I get some time I will compare the two.
I thought, key word being thought, that the length of the box was 6 1/2 feet.
I have been out of this hobby for a long time and I have forgotten a great deal.
Trying to get my feet wet again.
There are a great number of people that are more knowledgable than I when it comes to specifics.
I went to the Galleries and found a bunch of pics of 42s and the bed does look like a '41 sooo I will probably still keep the bed on but haven't decided about the fenders yet....I will be losing the running boards and they look pdf (pretty darn fine) no rust (surface of course in small areas) got em home will take better pics when I get a moment.....
