    Hard to see the details, but it looks like a 25 Gardner, they had 4 hinges and the double belt line.

    Not a Gardner after all, they had all wood frame work inside. Searched some more thru my spotters guide and found the 26-27 Chrysler also had 4 hinges and were steel framed.

    I think this one definitely had wood in the roof and floor I was thinking of an all steel cab with a wood bed

    In that era very few companies had steel framed bodies, Dodge (1914) was the first. But they all still had wood supports in the roof and some around windows and door edges for upholstery to fasten.

    Did a little more searching and it could be as early as 1925 Chrysler Series 58. They had several different Series(models) 50, 58, 60, 70, and 80. All the pictures I find of the 58 have the 4 hinges, most of the others have 3.

    Much better pictures but still can't identify it. Maybe it never was a truck in the first place, there's no rear section of a cab.

    I'm going '27 Pontiac Coach or Coupe ... see the emblem recess in the rad. shell ? Growing up on a farm, one of our Hoover wagons was built from a '27 Oakland the same color. It's a Fisher body ...

    The original tops of most cars in the mid-twenties were almost flat and made of wood, covered with vinyl. You could weld steel cross braces then flat sheet metal then paint it or glue on vinyl.
