Looks like a Marmon Herrington, Ford based.  One of the contenders for the 4 x 4 half ton truck order that went to Dodge with the T202 VC series in 1940.

That looks like the Louisiana exercises in 1940 that are featured in the ARMY ON WHEELS film / video.  One of these trucks was in the Krause collection and sold just last year or early this year.

Will go with the Ford // M-H crowd

With that light spot in the center of the tailgate above the military numbers, did you photoshop out the name Ford???

Most everyone has this, this temporarily immobilized little 1/2 ton pickup is a 1938-39 Marmon-Herrington Ford L3-4 4x4. Dubbed "Little Darling" by workers at the M-H plant in Indianapolis, the M-H 1/2 ton Fords were a major breakthrough in all wheel drive, a small, lightweight but powerful all terrain vehicle that is the ancestor of the 4x4 pickups we drive today. As impressive as these Ford 4x4's were, the Army still wasn't satisfied with the size and weight, so in 1940 the govenment solicited bids for a 1/4 ton 4x4 which became famous as the jeep. I found some great photos of these early M-H 1/2 tons in the Life Magazine Collection. The last photo is from Bill White and is the restored L3-4 formerly owned by Chet Krause.

It wasn't stopped by the mud, the distributer is under water on that Ford. That might have been a factor in the reluctance to accept those vehicles.

I''m an expert now, I didn''t have anything left over this time.
