I like the Qual Radiator Cap! This must have been a "First Class" Business in the day! :)

I wonder what type of material that truck hauled? By the look of the tires they are aired up tight and way over fifty pounds.

I'm pretty sure it's a Norwegian milk truck, as 'meieri" is Norwegian for "dairy". Looks like he's parked in front of a Ford dealership.

sourdough:

You're probably correct. The truck is white, like the color of milk.

The cab, from the edge of the cowl is close, but no cigar. Look at it carefully at the bottom and top of the windshield. There's a lot of subtle difference in that one as compared to US production 82A sheetmetal.

The cab looks to be made of wood (only 2 door hanges) and being straight across the bottom of windshield!!!! Shelby, Louisiana.
