    Is this a Ford?

    Found in Corfu, can anyone identify this truck? I know its not an old camera but I thought some of you guys may be into old vehicles as well.

    Looks like a late model Toyota.

    Looks to be about a 48 or 49 ford pickup that has seen better days, the for fender supports and rad supports look to be completly rusted out allowing it to droop in the front, but it does indeed look like a late 40's ford pickup, to confirm, if you can get to it, there should be an ident plate possibly still attached under the hood or in the door piller frame that says ford on it, also there are several databases on the net, that you can track the serial number down on, and in that age range it should be in the door piller and could perhaps be on the dash lower side on the drivers side. Could also be a ford that was made for a company in europe and badged with another name, ford did this quite a bit in the late 40's to help get the vehicles into service and help compensate for the destroyed productions capibilities in europe after the war.

    A Tundra to be exact, would be my guess.

    looks like a 49, don't see the air scoop vent , that popped up, though, but it might be there.....are you also wanting to trade it...for a Canham?

    Its a late 40s F1 pickup. I don't know the dates but 1948-1950 will be close enough. Definately been used...

    No Ford. Looks like a '53-'54 Chevy derivative to me. Where is Corfu?

    Don't think so Jim, the rad support between the front fenders is to short, looks quite bit different than the 53 I have here, the flat top on the fenders looks alot more like a ford as well..
