Here are some pictures of a Matford V8-F-11W currently being restored (by a non forum user). Tried to find some information on this vehicle on the net but without any luck. Any help will be most welcome

Hello! Some comments on the genuinety of the pictured Matford: The truck may be genuine wartime, and probably is if it is located in Norway. But it may also be post-war. Fact is the installed engine is eigther a 1949-53 US Ford 8BA 255CID engine or a French Ford hybrid flathead (composite engine by merging the 8BA and the 1942-48 59A-type blocks) as produced in the 60s an 70s for among others Ford-Simca SUMP 4X4 military trucks.
