Maybe run it through a photo editor and boost the contrast levels? Could help the ID stand out from the background.

It appears to me to be BD83H50-23103. There's not much to learn here that you probably don't already know.
BD = Ford F-47
83 = Pickup bodystyle
H = Assembly plant Home Office, Windsor Ont.
50 = 1950 model year
23103 = consecutive unit number

Welcome to FTE.

The info posted above sounds about right, you can reference the Canadian vin info thread here:

https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...fo-thread.html


Some of the tables are screwed up, but if you scroll through the thread I think they were fixed and reposted.

I also have a 1950 F-47, and I would love to see more pictures of yours, especially pics of the box, and whatever wood is left in it.

Thanks for all the help! Here's my rust bucket not much left in the bed... Got a new used front clip for it, starting to fabricate some patch panels. The truck runs and drives all new brake lines,plugs, wires ,thermostats etc. Still needs a pile of body work and rear leaf springs.
