From our South Saskatchewan correspondent, Alex Emond:
Looks like a c. 1940 Dodge truck. Saskatchewan is high and dry, like West Texas, so the metal lasts.
Oh I would like to buy this machine and get it on the road again. Looks like (almost) current Saskatchewan plates, so it can't have sitting all that long. If you buy a truck and plan to have it shipped, Autoliterate strongly, passionately, recommends Safe-Way Auto Transport out of Kentucky. They use their own trucks, which means your machine won't get shopped around from freight terminal to terminal; their drivers are extremely responsible and do exactly what they promise; and their prices are reasonable. They moved my truck from deep in West Texas to Bangor, Maine, and they have just delivered a friend's truck from Greensboro, NC to Marfa, Texas.
