The style of grill surround & front fenders is very similar to the 33-34 Ford car, but not the truck of those years. The 35 Truck has a very loose resemblance but the hood is different, and 36 is even more different. It's NOT a 28-33 Ford as they were very different to that photo. Depending on where the photo was taken it may not be American, or it could also be a derivitive of an American vehicle built in a different market area to different specs.

It most definately NOT a Model A Ford, (sold from 28-31). Do you even know if it's American or of European manufacture? There were cars made before WW2 in Europe with a similar style of grill surround.

Now there is a possibility it's Ford but built in a plant anywhere outside of Canada or the USA with styling mixed between different models. What does the emblem or badge on the upper grille surround look like?

Scroll down this page to see the 33 & 34 Fords, and this is the style of grille that truck has, but the same year Ford Trucks didn't use this look.

Truck photos can be found here.

I should point out that I owned & totally restored a 1928 Model A Ford which is why I'm certain it isn't one.
