I see a "W" in the insignia on the radiator, but that's it.

"Look, kid, this bargain
your old man sold me...

...I've been keeping it
together with spit.

The universal's shot.
The rear end's coming apart.

I'd be glad to give it back, but
I need it for one more haul. Just one."

I think the hood & radiator top are too rounded for a White.

Seems to be an "X" or something similar after that "W".

Moreland of California?

Perhaps a Road Runner.

White trucks had that round hood ornament, but not that font. For some reason, I keep thinking it might be some division of Willys.

I wasn't referring to the ornament. :)

Hmm...the radiator housing & headlights resemble those of a Fageol, but that doesn't fit the logo.

The radiator being significantly taller than the hood is an element of some Macks.

It probably is a Mack, looking at that cabin. Around 1917-1920 maybe.

Yeah, that certainly looks like the cabin of a Mack AB.

Those headlights would put it at late-20s/early-30s.

Aha! Just found this '27 AB and it's virtually identical!
