I bet the top one is one of the RAF purchases from Ford in Alexandria! Excellent, thanks.

Here's another picture of one of these 1940/41 model FC60Ls (C098TFS, F-60428-C and/or FC60L?), very obviously captured!

German Einheits-Fahrerhaus. If I remember right these standard cabins were introduced in 1943 to facilitate production. They were used on several types of trucks.

Here a Ford 3-tons.

Are the ones you refer you to included in your list of Known British Ford S/M Contracts?

To spur the imagination - if anything! - I've included a picture of a 1942 model Ford truck. It's cab survives (only just) in the Libyan Desert. Amazingly, it still sports its roof roundel!

Hanno

Hello

My name is Davis from India i am going through the net when i see this pic i think its a similar ford truck seems it was taken in Calcutta after the war (late 40s or early 50s).Calcutta was the hub at the time of CBI theater.so after the war many of the world war vehicles where given to the govt department.Its a Ford truck year 1942 but don no the ton capacity but i think its a 1.5 ton check the wood pattern and the canvas top which was quite popular at the time of WW2 here in india. Experts and seniors kindly shed more knowledge on this thank you.I have a similar truck but chevy make which i have recently acquired.

Regards

Davis

Compare the cabin with the one of the STEYR 1500 truck below.

To the end of the war, the Germans did not have much resources any more. They started to built even trucks with wooden cabins to save the metal for more important parts...

...the same ugly wooden cabin on a OPEL BLITZ:
That's a Mercedes DB 701, not an Opel Blitz. Opel already had a wooden back to their cabs and were therefore 'allowed' to keep it. Mercedes built licenced copies of the Opel Blitz, but fitted the Einheitsfahrerhaus, which was also fitted to Mercedes 4500A trucks and the equivalent Maultier.

Default Ford model codes

The deeper you go into the Ford model codes the more confosing it becomes.
I was thinking about the letter D in the code C11ADF and wonder if it comes the model D used for the 15 CWT light truck , a model between the model C 10 CWT (1/2 ton) and model Y one ton..
One question, Does the C11ADF use the 15 cwt axle with full floating hubs amd a single join / partition in the rear axle (like the bigger truck diff).
.
The 15 CWT axle uses 4.1 ratio gears while the 1 ton axle uses a lower gear ratio and bigger brakes.

John,
I seem to remember the C11ADF uses the F8 8cwt rear axle, and the C11AS used the normal civil running gear, but I am sure Ian McCallum can tell you more.

Regarding the "D"....I am sure this has come up on the forum before regarding a 4x4 chassis Indian Pattern (?)

Hello John,

Confusing it is! See Ford model designation for a pretty complete list.
