Well those pictures and that manual goes some way to prove they existed
Mine has lots of things on it to say it could be wartime, the dash has the correct holes in it for wartime production, the pedals have the cast dimples there is a large w on the fire wall and it has a type plate on the front and it's been removed as the holes are still there, It also has the holes in the battery tray and the preheat part on the inlet header for the blowtorch it also had lots of tan paint on it
Having now found a number on the chassis starting with F198t I think it has a chance

Pedals with cast bits not rubber
So I have read the whole thread and from what I can see my truck has lots of things to say it could be wartime as per flatheads list, the pedals, the holes on the dash, the holes in the battery tray, the pre heat hole, there is a dienstvorschrift for French built v3000s with four gears and two wartime images of wide cab fords that could be these?
It has had a type plate on the fire wall but it's gone, It also has stars stamped into the engine this is something I have seen on others period engines from Wehrmacht vehicles?
It is stated earlier in the thread about who can tell the difference between an F198t and the later one well mine has it stamped on the frame on the rear left F198t has anyone else found this stamped on their chassis?
