    I really don't think so. I remember somebody trying this several years ago and nothing lined up...so he sold BOTH trucks and bought something else.

  4. The '40-'47 cab is a totally different animal from the '48-'50 F series cab. There's really nothing but a '42-'47 front clip that will fit your '46 without a lot of major sheet metal surgery.

    Won't a 40-41 clip work? Those are much better looking, and the cabs are the same, or at least similar. Probably a lot harder to find, but they look nice.
