    Yes, The ford chassis used T18,T19 and Np435 . They were the 12-14 ft vans that were bread/cup cake vans.

    The Gm chassis used sm465.

    Thanks ill be searching even more now, So the ones with the ford manual transmissions are ford bread vans? or are they grummans? Im a powerstroke guy so dont know alot about the cummins yet, But its gonna be going in a 49 f-6 dump truck, I liked the 4 instead of the 6 since it will fit in nicer, It should have the power to push it right? I saw the guy on the board whos putting one in his 1947 ford dually and looks really nice just i know theses are not big power producing engines but can make some more hp with a couple mods, Is there any certain year engine i should look for?

    Thanks... the 49 F6 is a perfect canidate for a 4BT...... a simple turbo mod and an intercooler and you'll be where you want to be. P-pump'd 4BT's are probably the best... but my VE pump still is stout... (hell of a lot better then a gas guzzling big block or the old flat head that sat there.

    My bread truck (a Ford) came with a Borg Warner. I am planning on pulling it this weekend, if you decide to buy one (a transmission, not a truck), PM me.

    I bought a Ford Step Van yesterday morning here in Memphis. It has a 4BT and a manual transmission --- I'm not going to be using the transmission, so if you want it, shoot me a PM. I've not driven the truck yet; however, it was being driven until a year ago --- they just didn't need it anymore, so they parked it.
