Ford trucks were treated to a restyle for 1942 that was shared by all models, and they no longer looked like the car line. However, it turned out to be a short selling season.The United States was drawn into World War II on December 7, 1941, shortly after Fords 1942 models were introduced. The order was given to stop production of civilian vehicles on February 10, 1942, so assembly plants could be converted to producing war materiel. From the time the plants closed through to the end of the war, Ford concentrated its efforts into building B24 Liberator bombers; aircraft engines; tanks; Jeeptype military vehicles; wooden gliders; and military versions of the 1942era pickup trucks, cars, and heavyduty trucks.
This F5 truck, freshly restored, was first registered in November 1942 and is finished in red with ivory trim, (chrome plating was banned during World War II) including the jail bar front grill. Only businessmen or farmers who could prove their labor was vital to the war effort received one of a limited run of heavyduty civilian trucks. This example also features a power takeoff (PTO) under the cab. A power takeoff is any of several methods for taking power from a power source, such as a running engine, and transmitting it to an application such as an attached implement or separate machines.
Most commonly, it is a splined drive shaft installed on a tractor or truck allowing implements with mating fittings to be powered directly by the engine.
The engine bay is extremely tidy, its body is straight and solid, the trucks lights are clear and hazefree while the windows are intact and clear. The ivory front bumper is in very good order.
This truck rides on Atlas tires, size 7.0020 in front and Mansfield Military mud and snow tires, size 7.5020/34 in the rear. The rear wheels are duals. Each tire is mounted on steel wheels painted red.
In late 1938, Ford introduced V881A, commonly called the 24 stud engine because it uses 24 studs to hold down each head. With 6.12:1 compression, horsepower remained the same, but torque increased slightly. In 1939, as the V891A, compression increased to 6.15:1. The ratings remained the same for the 1940 V801A, 1941 V811A and the last civilian model, the V821A, which saw compression rise, to 6.2:1. This engine was used through 1942 for civilian use and saw some use in military vehicles during World War Two. Collectively all 221 motors are commonly referred to as 85 horse motors. Backing this motor is a threespeed manual transmission.
