I see it has the long splash aprons and running board brackets. Do you know what the body was? Maybe a bus?

Hello all. I am in Hurricane, WV. I have very little info on the truck. A friend of mine bought it on my behalf at an estate auction. (I got a really good deal.) I did speak to the second previous owner by phone. He had traded it to previous owner for T parts. He said at that time 1 1/2- 2 years ago the truck ran with no engine noise or smoke. Has been resting in a barn since then. He also stated he got the truck from Wheelersburg, Ohio. The third or fourth previous owner had begun constructing a huckster body but never completed it. The guy that got it running a couple years ago said the brakes had been newly redone. I was out of town when I acquired it and have yet to actually see it in person!

Welcome. Looks like you have the stamped headlight bar used from May - August 1930.

I really don’t know what I have yet. As soon as I get a chance I’ll check serial numbers. Every thing I see so far leans toward 1930. Really anxious to get into it!
