RealRides of WNY - 1949 Ford F-1

This stylish 1949 Ford F-1 is from the second year of Ford’s first post-war light truck makeover. This basic design would stay in place (with styling updates, of course!) through MY 1952. Looking at the grille of today’s RealRide, I have to ask, “Is that a hole I see near the bottom for a manual engine crank?” I imagine someone out there knows for sure*. I never noticed it until I was looking through the photos some time after seeing the F-1 at a cruise night at the Urban VFW-AMVETS Post in Lancaster.
(*If you know the answer, and you're viewing this on Facebook, please comment below. If you're on buffalocars.com, please email me at the address below.)
