48? Ford F2 project

Hello,

I am being given a Ford F2 and I thought it was a 47 but the guys on the 47 and older site said it was at least a 48
What engines available in 47 F2 And where to start with one? - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

Here are the pics.

Anyone tell me anything else about this truck and where I should start or any good advice

Welcome to the forum! Let me throw out a few guesses here...

front clip style = 1948-1950
grill with no ss trim or holes drilled = 1949-1950
cast instead of stamped f2 badge = 1949

Decoding your VIN will provide you with more specific info about your truck though.

And, there are plenty of more knowledgeable folks here that can give you more details than I can! BTW, where are you located?

It doesn't have a bed. Was it probably a wood bed that rotted or fenders that are were removed? Did they have both options?

If its a six and not been changed, it will be a 226 with a side mount dist, if V8, 8ba or 8rt, dist, in front of the right side head. If orig V8, it will have a drain **** under each water pump. Have also been told that the first 8ba in the 48 trucks used head studs instead of bolts.

It looks to me like you have the factory short running boards (rounded off past the doors), so your truck probably did not originally have an express bed (the fendered, boxed bed). But it is a pretty old truck, so the bed may have been removed and the running boards swapped out some time in the distant past.
