Hi Folks,

I just bought a '52 Ford F4 Dump with power angle plow. The truck is in
fair condition (bodywise). This is OK because I'm going to use it as a
farm work truck for the next several years before doing it over. The specs
on the glove box tag give the following, which I've checked against "Recks
& Relics8", but I still have a few questions before my Operators & Shop
Manuals come in.

S/N F4R2SR14XXX, which suggests:

F4= well F4
R= 239 cu.in. V8
2= 1952
SR= Somerville plant

Other info on the tags shows:

10,000 GVW, 134" WB, 4 speed synchro, 5.14 axle, 96 HP, "N" code paint
(R&R8 info calls out "Vermilion" for N code, truck is definitely "Green"
and a trip to my local antique Ford dealer's (www.pvford.com) old DuPont
paint book gives a 1952 N paint code as "Meadow Green").

Questions:

Where is/was the Somerville plant located? When were the 14000 series S/Ns
made in 1952 (early, middle, late)? The Title list the truck as a "1 1/2
ton" is this what the F4 is? The truck is still 6 volts, is it negative or
positive ground?

I thank you in advance for your great replies.

Francis:

There may have been a plant in Somerville, NJ at one
time. That's the only Somerville that I know of.
Thanks for the great link to PV Ford. It is a great
site!

I think I'm more jealous of the garage, although there are some nice
vehicles there.

And while PV Ford doesn't have the selection of some of the larger mail
order places, I end up buying a lot of "Ooops! I didn't know I was gonna
need a new one of THOSE" type parts from them, hopefully enough to keep
them in business for the next "Ooops" I need to fix.
