Welcome. Looks like you have a 1929 chassis with a 30-31 cab and fenders the carburetor is a later 1931.
The engine number is April 1929 car.

These were work trucks....they were worked, parts were worn out and beat up and changed. It isnt uncommon for cabs and engines to be changed.....they are alot of fun to own and drive as long as you dont want to go anywhere fast.... Greg

It is not the original engine. But that is expected on a 90 year old work truck. The grill shell is from a car. Truck shells were shaped differently and painted. All in all it looks like something to play with and have a good time.

Like others have said you have a 28 29 running gear for the most part (worm drive rear axle for sure and frame are) cab is 30 31 and the motor is from a passenger car. That carb is late late 31 and they can go for $300.00 to $350.00.

Pretty neat truck. Get it going and have fun with it. Use it around your house like it was meant to be. Take it to Menards or Home Depot and have them load it up with your weekend project. It will handle it.

Also has a car bumper. The only way to find out exactly what it was originally is to look at the serial number. It is on the frame and the cab needs to be lifted to see it. Not one of Henry's better ideas. The serial number on the title "Might" be the correct one.
