Ford V3000s

Post by Sturmschar »

I have aquired this Ford V3000s and have started its restoration. It is quite clearly a Poissy built Ford not a Cologne one, this I know because the engine cowling is set in from the cab the Cologne models were flush, also the instruments are in French :wink: . However I know that Poissy ceased assembly of the 3000 in late 42 when they experienced sabotage problems, parts were then shipped to Cologne for assembly. Or so I thought - on close inspection of the typenschild it shows the maker to be Stihl - Stuttgart!! Stihl, during the war were and indeed still are, makers of chain saw's, but until close examination of the typenschild I had no idea that they were involved in truck assembly. I have scoured the net for information and have also contacted Stihl for any information they might have. Has anyone come across anything related to Stihl and Ford truck production??

I'm just wondering what's the going rate for a Poissy V3000S is at the moment. There is one in Poland - cab is partially modified but the rest looks rather original. I'm looking for an advice - asking price is about £2500 - what you think? It might be early war or post war - but how to find it out. Instruments are french. See the picture of the data tag.

One more thing - have you seen any period pictures of the V3000S with a Poissy cab?

In June 1940 Poissy management passed to the Germans and began to produce trucks of 3 to 3.5T capacity and received the prefix "F" for France. The German code for the V3000s was G- Germany, 1-1941 9-3.9L V8, 8-wheelbase, T-truck. It seems to follow that a similar model produced in France would carry the same US Ford coding with the prefix F. Your Typenschild reads F798T which means F= France, 7=1947, 9=V8, 8=wheelbase, T=Truck. So you definatly have a 1947 Poissy built machine. £2500 is about right for a post war example, I paid £4000 for mine which is a 1943 model.
I have some origional picture somwhere, will try to put them up.
