Here's a truck from the Great Depression. I'll take one of those dinners ! Emblem removed, photo from the Life Magazine Collection.

Model A Ford

If it were a Ford it'd be a 28 or 29 Ford A but I'm going to say Marmon Harrington

Have to agree with the chevy crowd. If it was 28 or 29 Ford it would have cowl lights. Wayne

I'm thinking Chevrolet as well.

I am going with Chevrolet - 1931 vintage.

Most everyone has the right idea here, with Bill White out in front as usual. This is a 1931 Chevrolet 1/2 ton truck with a specially built delivery body. I don't believe this body was a factory job. This truck looks well used when these photos were taken in 1938, one of the worst production years ever for the auto and truck industry. These photos are from the Life Magazine Collection.
