or C391Q 5181 attached inside of and on same level as frame channel [latest design]

So I deduce that it was a change in production perhaps to reduce weight and cost??
That could very well be the case. My Jan. '43 F15A has the underslung towing pintle, a friend of mine has a '45 F15A with the towing pintle at frame level.

I'll check the Ford 15-cwt parts list.
