This is getting off topic but the early 1947 Fords were identical to the 1946's. This is per my copy of the 1941 - 48 Fords put out by the Early Ford V-8 Club. So these Ford are either 1946's or very early 1947's. The 1947's were a transitional year. The early 1947's were identical to the 1946's then they got the round parking lights under the headlights from trucks probably as a cost reduction, with no hood ornament. The last 1947's received hood ornaments like the 1948 Fords.

You are looking at 1946 Fords. The rectangular parking lights inboard of
the headlights were the same in 1942 and 1946. As Richard Hendrickson has
pointed out, the 1947 Fords were virtually identical, except that the parking
lights became round and smaller, and were positioned just below the
headlights. The two short chrome strips on the trunk were also new for 1946 but I
don't know with certainty if they were continued in '47.

Mark, just for the record, those are postwar Fords, probably '46
models or maybe the nearly identical '47s.
