Looks like an early forties Ford cab over to me, but I'm English, so what do I know?

Are you waiting for Scottish aid?

No, it's American. All one gets from the Scots is requests for money to bail out their failing industries.

Perfect example of the propaganda from Englandshire which make it essential that Scotland breaks free to survive.

Very similar to early '40s Ford but this is a late '30s GMC.

My first idea was a 1939-40 AF-Series. But Skywatcher68 is indeed right: the more or less square hole in the upper part of the hood indicates the (missing ;) ) grille a 1937-38 F-Series.

(1½-/2-ton F-16 to 7-/8-ton F-61. If I'm not mistaken, there were no C.O.E. models with a heavier ton rating in this truck line)

Turns into a 1951 White-Freightliner WF-42 later on, in stock footage from The Junkman (1982).

Also listed as GMC COE. Somebody should change those to the appropriate series names.

I'm on it, work in progress ;)

For the record, and after some more researches, this cab was used from 1937 to 1948, with just some small cosmetic changes:
• 1937-38 F-Series;
• 1939-40 AF-Series → all COE models;
• 1941-48 AF-Series → no change, except that it's now used only by models from 2½-ton and above. The medium-duty 1½-ton (300) and 2-ton (350) had another cab and name (1941-42 CF-Series / 1946-47 EF-Series).

It was replaced in 1949 by the HF-Series, a.k.a Cannonball.
