I'm not too sure 100% certain this is the location but I know that it does apply for the 42 Ford (46 Fords were simply restyled models of the 42) - look on the left frame member directly behind the front engine mount.

Hi, I've had both a '46 and my current '47 and you should have a body tag number mounted on the engine side of the firewall under the hood. This is about 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall and is riveted on with 2 rivets, one on each end in the center of the tag. If the tag is not there....make sure you check for 2 small holes in a pattern as described above. As for the vin number, there should be another tag on the passenger side door hinge post when you open the passenger side door. These are almost always deteriorated, unreadable, or completely gone, but that is where the tags are on these cars. I know this question is pretty old, but maybe this will help if you haven't already discovered these tags. Good luck with it!
