This truck is a bit of a hybrid, with parts from at least 2 trucks. See if you can name them, including what it was originally (the cab and frame is original). Thanks to Kelly Shane for this very interesting photo.

The cab does look like the 666, front hubcap looks like White, and White heavy single axles had the spindle on the hub, but not used in tandems that I'm aware of.  Autocar and Mack also used spindle hubs but I don't know about tandem availability.

Dean Wills of Nebraska had a big old White chassis with a Peterbilt cab, but it had a tag axle on the tandem.

Well, everyone is a little right, no one is exactly right, but pretty darn close so we'll call it a wash. No argument on the big radiator, it's Peterbilt all the way, and the rears are Mack bogies. As for the rest ....  Corbitt 50SD6 or White 666 used the same cab, and so did the lesser known cousin, the 6x4 White 1064, which is what this truck is. How can you tell from the photo ? The 1064 had a large box on the roof for storing the tarpaulin that coved the cargo body. The remnants of this box are still there ! Thanks to Kelly Shane for this great photo. Here is the rest of the story from the email Kelly sent:

Jeff-
  My brother and I have been scanning old family photos and thought you might be
interested in the attached. The truck is a 1943 White 1064. My dad and uncle
refit it with a 275 and Peterbilt radiator in the early '50s. They also replaced
the Timkens with Mack bogies. The trailer is Fruehauf 16 tire. Not sure what the
shovel is, tho I'm sure it was a log loader with the twin spar log boom removed
for transport. Picture was taken in the mid to late '50s at Hobart Mills, Cal.
  We still have the truck, and have just moved it into the shop to start
restoring it to it's former glory.

I have no idea about the fenders. I always thought they were modified originals. Here's a photo of the same truck in the late '40s taken when my dad was driving for the original owner.
