There was a thread on this a while back. Look up a thread entitled "65 and earlier Crew Cab". I attached a picture there. These rascals are really rare, and sought after. Good luck finding one.

RailRoad special ordered them for years - I have seen a 1948 or thereabout crew cab. Even the old Model A's and original T's had a 6 man cab for the fire trucks.

There was also a company that contracted with Ford back in the 40's and 50's to make a crewcab for fire fighters, and rail roads. Look at the old Ford borchures from the 50's. One of the options they show are a crewcab.

1965 was the first year Ford itself made crewcabs, earlier ones were done by specialty companies. I myself am selling my 60 Crew built by Orroville Specialty Company

There was a 56 drew cab (3 door) railroad special featured in truckin magazine about ten years gago. They were not done by ford, but order through ford and done by a private company. Much like the marman herringto (sp?) 4 wheel drives were back then.

Here are a couple of ads from the 1948 Hildy's book. The first one is for a crew cab, the second for a sleeper cab but pretty close to a crew cab:

I live in lake charles and there is about a 59 model with four doors in very good shape at an old air force base that is now a school. It is in very good shape. I will see if I can get some pics.
