I do like this picture.

What a clean late 1930's Ford medium duty truck. That background with the lattice fencing really suits the era when this workhorse was new, as does your B & W photography. The voice of experience (mine ) says that it's very difficult getting a nice, period background to complement a vintage vehicle.

I note that the side of the truck's hood has the art deco V8 symbol, that Ford used in the 1930's. I've seen many a V8 badging over the years on a variety of cars/trucks...but to me this particular design from the FoMoCo is the best in terms of 'look'.

In fact, I would say that whoever was doing the styling of Ford vehicles from 1932 to 1940 had flair with a pen. The styling stars of this time, to me, are the grille of the '32 Ford, the front end of the '40 Ford and of course that figure '8' within the V, as per the subject pf your photograph. .

BTW, nice musical accompaniment to your picture. You may have started a trend .

Les, I figured you'd know precisely what this fellow is. I new it was a Ford, owing to the design of the V8 badge, but I had no idea what year it was built.

This truck sure has personality - I'm glad you like the photo (and the music)..
