at the end of a deep investigation, truck has been found to be a G8T (1 1/2Ton) instead! :shock:

thus, my search for a Ford 1/2 Ton pick up will continue...


on the web world you can find three or four [possibly] original only... restored... I can't believe that all the others went scrapped or became hot-rods... :?
on the data plate, it could be marked 1GC or 2GC (6 cyl.), or even 21C (8 cyl.), and then the serial number (5 digits).

the USA numbers on contract W-398-QM-11623 go from USA 254793 to USA 258292 (3500 vehicles).


please. look well at your warehouses!! :P

here a picture from the manual

You mention that it must be military, not civilian. What features distinguish military from civilain? The models you mention appear to be standard civilian models...

Basically, the cargo bed has the way to host the tarpaulin, and two hooks in front behind the bumper.
Model is 21CS , where the “S” is essential for the military model... data plate is showing the acceptance from the QMC...

Year is 1942 and, of course, they have an “USA number” in a known batch.

Thank you
