Hi Jose, hi Max,

it cannot be a German Ford from Köln, because this type was not produced in Germany. I think it could be a vehicle of the Australian army. The American designation was 01 Y for a light truck with a payload of one ton. Here a pic of such a vehicle (source of the pic: pinterest.com).

Regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
I had my doubts that they were produced in Germany- The Heavy Duty F3 (postwar F4) was extremely rare even in States. I think you nailed it on the Ozzie version. The bed and rear wings more closely resemble Jose's photo. Thanks a lot.
Cheers,
Max

Hi guys,
Of course it came from Down Under, the fuel tank filler pipe on the left side and those 3 decorative strips on the door combined with 1940 front end simply cry "Australia". :lol:
Bert, on your picture it is late "modified commercial": it has simplified bumper and the front fenders have cutouts to clear the bigger wheels. On the picture of Jose it is pure 1940 1-ton "utility truck" without any modifications:

Those 1-ton 1940 Fords were 01Y, 02Y and 09Y, regretfully it is impossible to say what's on the pictures without looking under the bonnet or at data plate.
Cheers!

Thanks ilfil,
Obviously, I need more of an education on Austrailian vehicles.
Cheers,
Max

Hi,
Thanks for all the informations!
And the last question-how this find its way to German hands, could it be the unlucky Greek campaign? Like the CC60L Chevrolets, early CMPs...

Studebaker? not sure about the year... Looks like some much older cab was fitted, rather than coachbuilt one.

Hi Jose,
Yes, definitely a '38-'42 K Series chassis. You may be right, the cab looks similar but not identical to the early 30's cab.
