Part of the 1947-55 Advance-Design truck line, it followed the "trends" of this latter. The fuel filler cap behind the cab, on door handle level, indicates therefore a 1949+ model, and as it lacks vent windows, we may identify this truck as a 1949-50 model.

Sold as 2-ton 5000 models: 5100 (110"/2.79 m wheelbase), 5400 (134"/3.40 m wb) and 5700 (158"/4.01 m wb). It's not a short 5100 for sure, but I don't know if we can see which long wheelbase is used here.

(To be as precise as possible, there were also 5100S, 5400S and 5700S trucks, where the "S" stands for "Special": these 5000S-Series -and conventional 6000S-Series- versions were 1½-ton only models with all internal specs of the 2-ton ones. But I think they were anecdotal models, as the literature about these "light heavy-duty models" is almost nonexistent)

Same truck as this one?

As usual, some typical clothes, farm animals on the road and old cars (but not dirt road for once!) are used to (try to) make one think that the scene takes place in a non-US country. India in this case: see the "Calcutta Airport" sign, among other details...
The 1968+ (US market specific) side markers of the car in the left looks messy, in this regard :D
