I'm looking for information on the Ford Model 46 but can't find that much on the Internet, where to have a look?

Hey there, 

I'm looking for historical information on the Ford Model 46, which has been produced from 1933 to 1934.

Informations like : History of the car, production numbers, technical specifications...

There is not much information on that car available.

Do you know where I could find these? Any books to recommend? Contacts?

Thank you

As 1937 points out, the 1933-1934 Ford's were designated Model 40's, such as 40-70A for the Tudor Sedan and 40-79A for the Station Wagon etc. In 1935 they became the Model 48 and in '36 were Model 68 and kept changing numerically from year to year. I would purchase the 1933-1934 Ford book offered by the V-8 Ford Club. It will give you all the information you need.

Do you mean the 1946 Model year?  For the 1933 and 1934 Ford passenger cars were all Model 40s/

The 33/34  small trucks were Type 46, with a different chassis than the Tpye 40 cars.

Like the Roadster pickup were Type 46-800, while the closed cab pickups were 46-810.

Sourcw "The 1933-34 Ford Book", Restoration Manual by The Early ford V8 Club of America.

They also have a good Forum and is the place to buy the book. 1105132470_CoverShot.jpg.808df7e6394683616fe57441dd3b6d82.jpg

Im speaking about this Model 46 quoted in this article :  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1932_Ford


The term 1932 Ford may refer to three models of automobile produced by Ford Motors between 1932 and 1934: the Model B, the Model 18, and the Model 46. These succeeded the Model A. The Model B had an updated four cylinder and was available from 1932 to 1934. The V8 was available in the Model 18 in 1932, and in the Model 46 in 1933 & 1934. The 18 was the first Ford fitted with the flathead V-8. The company also replaced the Model AA truck with the Model BB, available with either the four- or eight-cylinder engine.

The three car models were replaced by the streamlined Model 48 in 1935.


@1937hd45 There have been a Model 40 but also a Model 46 around the same time, that's correct. I've found several information on this Model 40, but nothing on the 46

BTW thank you for the facebook group you quoted to me, I'm gonna visit it 👍


@46 woodie & @Paul Dobbin Thank you for your redirection to the Ford V-8 Club! I'm gonna ask my questions around here. There must be a general confusion between Type and Model, as this is not really clear on each piece of information I've found over the internet.
