I see a rectangular civilian dash, so that means it was built around 1942-1943.

 

Reinforcement of the chassis would mean it was a 3-ton truck.

 

There a lots of differences between Ford and Chevrolet, so if you are looking for spares for your Chevrolet it would be best to trade what you have for Chevrolet parts rather than trying to modify the Ford parts.

 

On http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums we have a number of French people, they may be able to help you find what you need.

If it's a wrecker, then yes the chassis is special, or at least has some special parts (from what I remember if the parts list).

Hi Jean,

 

The CMP rear bodies were usually supplied by sub contractors to either Chevrolet or Ford, which means you could use both bodies for your C60. It's hard to see in the pictures, but I think the steel one you have there is the earlier fully welded type (there was a later type that looked identical, but was bolted), while the wood/steel composite body was a slightly later design, that was bolted and could be knocked down for shipment.
