Ester Eddie, I don't think he's being sarcastic, just stating what I was also thinking. The Dodge panel truck would only be 2 years old in 1938. It sure had a rough life if the date on the picture is correct. Lots of times the photo info isn't correct, but I don't see anything in the picture to date it any later. Even if it's early 40's the poor panel still had a rough life.
