The 1946 Ford truck was the first Ford truck model on the assembly line following the end of the war in 1945. Parts from the 1942 model were used, which explains the similarities in the two trucks. The eight-cylinder engine produced 100 hp at 3,800 rpm and 180 foot pounds of torque at 2,000 rpm. It was only available with a three-speed manual transmission on the floorboard.
These pickups came with a wide range of options, although most are standard in modern vehicles. Drivers of the 1946 Ford truck could request rear shocks, an interior heater, passenger-side windshield wiper, passenger-side taillight, a sliding rear window and an oil bath air cleaner. There were also several options for paint color, including black, greenfield green, navy blue, botsford blue, modern blue, dynamic maroon, dark slate gray, silver sand, willow green and light moonstone gray.
