1946 Federal

Recommended Posts

I will soon come into possession of a 1946 Federal through a possessory action. I don't have details about the car as yet but wonder if someone can give me ANY general information about this car? If the vehicle is in decent condition what would be a ball park value?

"Federal" as in truck, right? I am unaware of any Federal cars post WW-II, but Federal Trucks were very much around in 1946.

Never heard of a Federal car in '46. Did Federal by any chance make military vehicles that could be called cars, as in command car.

Federal made trucks and the US military used Federal busses. BIG air braked jobs. I drove an Army [maybe Navy] surplus Federal bus on a summer job during 1949. Kinda neat to drive one of those BIG jobs when you are 16 and before there were so many rules and regulations to be complied with.

Keep us posted as to what it turns out to be.

The Federal truck factory was on Livernois (Avenue of fashion) in Detroit about a mile south of Grand River rd. The factory was in very poor condition back in the 70's. Thats about all i can help u with.
