1940 Ford Light Open Cab Military Vehicles.[/QUOTE

This shot makes me want to go back and try that 41 front clip on my 4x4 RPU.
I need to cut my jailbar front fenders and they are awfully nice. My 41 front fenders are prettry much a mess, so I could alter all I want. Plus if it looked like this truck in the foreground when done I would consider it worth the extra work. Perhaps I will revive my thread of 40 front fenders so I can get some info from the experts on what fits what. OK, back to the Aussie war wagons. I would call those in this phota as 'gunships'. Dang they are so Cool!

While this Ford is not a 1940 or 1941 model, I thought that you would be interested in seeing pictures. It is a 1942 Ford Marmon-Herrington LD 6-4, seen at the 17th Australian Early Ford V8 Nationals, held last weekend in Toowoomba, Queensland.

Thanks so much for this Merc! That is a thing of beauty! I like that high stance with that heavy MH gear. My contraption is kind of hard to get in and out of even though it sits maybe 4" lower. Toyota landcruisers were created to be 4x4 from the ground up and the leaf springs are placed under the axles instead of on top, I turned 68 today and I bet the average soldier driving that '42 was about 18-20 years old. Running boards should fix that some for me. I harvested some running board brackets off a parts truck over the weekend.

Judging by the wheels and hubs shown in GB Sisson pic, I would think that the running gear under the Ford is not MH. Marmon-Harrington generally used the early '36-39 wheels and hubs through '47 on their 4 x conversions.

Blucar... I re-reading this I'm thinking you thought my six lug setup was MH.... OR you thought Mine wasn't MH.... This creation of mine is a poser... Some old jailbar sheet metal on the chassis/drivetrain of a '70s toyota landcruiser 4 door wagon that was our family car and later my kids drove to school. Both were sitting on the property doing nothing so I combined the two.
