Default 37 1 1/2 ton truck questions

I recently acquired this truck. I have the wrong grill, was wondering what it belongs to. I haven't seen one with two holes in bottom.

I'm thinking a pickup, it's much to small for for this truck.

Google E83W. English Ford.

2 crank holes.


If you want to know why 2 crank holes, the engine (whole driveline actually) is offset to the passenger side. The RHD ones for sure are offset to the left. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it is safe to assume that the LHD ones are offset to the left. The rear axle is of recognisable Early Ford type, and had one short and one long side.

Mart.

Edit:I checked and there is confirmation that LHD versions were offset the other way.

Yep Marts right. Fordson/Thames. They made a nice little pick-up as well. Lots of them made their way down here to NZ

Spare tire lock is 1935 or older. If the locking brace is vertical as shown, it is for a passenger car. If the brace is at a 45* angle, it is for a pickup.
