  • 46 Ford Half Ton

    Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Jon and my father and I were given this 46 half ton by my grandfather. It had been sitting in a barn in MD for the last 30 or so years. The motor was rebuilt before it went into storage. Brought her home, cleaned it up, and fired it up. I am going to have some technical questions over the next few weeks but so far so good. Took it for a spin the other day and it did great. The truck is mostly original other than someone painted it at some point but I think we are going to leave it as - is.IMG_0455.jpg

    Welcome Jon and Pop to the VFF!. That truck looks sweet just the way it is. It looks to have been stored properly over those 30 years.

      Hey Jon, WELCOME to the VFF!!

      That is a fine example of a survivor and I think you are right in keeping it as is. I do love that straight 6, not many of those around.
      You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        SWEET TRUCK... As stated, I would keep it as it is... Hard to find one of these in this good of condition. Get a manual and ASK, ASK, ASK the folks on this forum. We have busted our knuckles on a few of these.
        Change the fluids, oil, tranny and rear end. Pull the wheels and check brakes and maybe even repack the wheel bearings. I would do a compression check to ascertain if there are any ring/valve issues. Drive it, tinker on it and most importantly, "Enjoy the adventure"... Chap

          I wouldn't do anything but drive it, maintain it and maybe fine a original taillight. Nice truck!
