    The cab is somewhat recognizable but the rest of the truck not so much. I guess they hadn't developed their world famous trademark yet either. Great find, thanks for posting!!

    Photo of a 1940 Pete, the one above was wrecked at one time and some of the hood parts are from a Fageol.

    I'm not totally sure, but I think the rounded radiator shell was correct on some of the '39 Petes. I got to see the Company owned '39 a few years back and iirc it had that radiator. Possibly a Fageol holdover part.

    I also remember the '38 Fageol that Tidewater barge lines restored when it was sitting at the Continental Grain elevator in Pasco. It did have that same radiator. That is one sharp looking truck now.

    Oh your correct RZ, what I'm taking about is the sheet metal. IIRC part of the hood was Fageol. But take a look at the KW I'm about to post in the Kenworth thread.
