Weathered Wheels: 1948-50 Ford panel truck

A 'Bonus-Built' Ford rusts away in Utah

“Rarely seen these days — to be replaced by minivans,” notes OC contributor John Bellah, who spotted this Ford 1/2-ton panel truck slowly rusting away in a public park in Springdale, Utah. This circa 1948-’50 Ford could carry either a 226-cid six with 95 hp or a 239.4-cid V-8 with 100 hp. The postwar Ford haulers were billed as the “Bonus-Built Trucks” with the panel truck using an all-new body.
