What is the serial number? That will tell what engine it originally had.

Serial number same as Vin..? I see vin on Firewall high on passenger side...?

I will get it and post here....thanks guys.... Wife loves Red, so she is torn...the blue looks really good too....and is a recent home done paint job...looks great form 15-20ft...lol...bit rough up close, but solid, and will not rust....thinking we might leave it blue for now, make it road worthy, and start collecting the little fun stuff for it....

If I were wanting to return it to Flat head original status...is there a good Auto tranny out there or adapter available to run one..? Wife has bad knee, and Clutch will not be good for her to drive...

These trucks were built before they had VINs on vehicles, the serial number is what they used for ownership and registration. So the number on the tag is correct. You should also find it stamped up on the passenger side of the frame near the original motor mount and on the glove box door. Did you get a title with her?

With it being a 49 V8 F3 it should start with like

98RY*****

9= 1949 or 50
8R = V8
Y = F3
the rest is you serial number down the line

Mine is an F2...
Here is the Serial number....
9 8 R D 3 9 0 4 3 4 K C

So it appears V8 was stock... it has a 4 speed in the bed , can I assume that is original as well.....?

I am torn between keeping the 302 in it or rebuilding the Flat Head...
I think they are the Shiz....But it is the Wifes truck, so it is Her decision In the end....Might rebuild the flat head with my Boy and Daughter , just to do it, then sell it or Stuff it into something else..

Breakdown of my Serial is much apreciated...

John

KC (Kansis City) is the plant that yours was built in. Serial number sound high enough to be a 1950, someone else will chime in with more info. Also take a look at this http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/42...n-cut-off.html
