Blue on the left is a 1950s Dodge (/Fargo/DeSoto)

On the right is a 1941-1942/1946-1947 Ford COE

The Dodge is a 1948-53 B-Series wit the 1951-53 front face. Where Fargo and DeSoto sold in South America?
Ford heavy-duty trucks were 1½-ton and 2-ton models, either as conventional or as COE trucks and were just promoted as "Heavy-duty trucks":

Looks like COE (Cab Over Engine) version to me, eLMeR :think:

Did you really read my previous comment, rjluna2, or did you just focus on the picture?

I saw of course that the truck in the main picture is a COE. The fact is that the content of the brochure shows COEs among other conventional trucks, giving just the different wheelbases. I didn't see the point to publish these excerpts, as I just wanted to point out that Ford didn't use a specific name...

We have at least 1 (older model) DeSoto truck in Brazil, and where you have DeSoto trucks you often have Fargo as well: /vehicle.php?id=349447 (the thumbnails are now gone, but trust me that the grille badge said DeSoto)
