Default 1942 Ford 1/2 Pickup

Good afternoon all, I am new to the sight and my 1942 Ford Pickup which is a great looking truck, when I purchased it I was unaware of importance of that year, it was a low production model due to the War. Does anyone have an idea of the production number of the 1942 Ford Pickup. My truck has the flathead V8.

217,651 cars & trucks produced by Ford US. Due to War production ,I would guess most of these were some sort of commercial vehicle for the Services & not cars.
The 1942 style car was produced from late '41 as civilian production stopped in Feb. '42. Figures from 'Ford on 6 Continents' by Wilkins&Hall [1964], . Cheers.
