It's a standard civilian WF, late or post war, the chassis number will pin it down.  Looks like an original flatbed, so if it has a dump or raise function that may have been added  May be a WF-32 or the chassis length may mean a slightly different model.


1939 to 1947 civilian Dodge trucks were 50% 1/2 or 1.5 ton trucks, so the model isn't uncommon and parts are easy enough to get.  Unmolested original beds are quite rare though.

Too many Dodges and Dodge-powered things...

Is it just me, or are all the picture links the same?

39 had no cowl lights, 40 I'm not sure, 41-47 did. 2 ton, most likely. Should be a tag on the driver's door post with model info and serial #. Serial number is also on the frame, between the front shackle and axle on the outside of the seft side. Big numbers, 1/2" or so. That'll tell a lot. Also, assuming the original engine is in it, (50% chance?) the motor # will tell a lot. It's above the generator on a flat pad on the block just below the head. Should start with a T (assuming a car motor hasn't been swapped in).

Regardless, if it has a factory # (not a remanufacturers #) you can look it  up here:

Where's Bill White when you need him ? He is the local Dodge expert. I'm betting this is a post war model.

Definitely 41-47 and I don't know of any visible differences year to year, over the production run. I'm sure that somewhere in the internet world, there is a listing of serial numbers by year, but I wouldn't know where to look.

Cowl lights continued to the end of that series in '47. Wide headlights started in '41.
I'm sure there are other differences also, 236 motor likely.
Mike Fowler would know.

I think the cowl lights make it late 30's but not sure. definitely pre war. The experts will be along shortly I am sure. Welcome to our forum and you have probably come to a good place to learn about your truck.

I cried because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no class.

What I do know: it is a late 30's or early 40's Dodge Grain Truck. I don't know the model. It looks like it has hydraulic lifts to raise or lower the bed. It also has a straight 6 (model 238?). Any help with its ID would be amazing.

What I have found out since I originally posted this. It is probably a 46/47 WF-32 with a flathead straight 6.

Thankshttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/8d01ed33-ad3a-4176-9c18-57a7.jpg
