I was going to say GMC.  Is there a design influence from Republic?

It seems to be nearly unanimous for Republic. This appears to be a circa 1927 model. By 1929 Republic was bought out by American LaFrance, and would become LaFrance-Republic. Sterling acquired LaFrance-Republic in 1932. There was never a GM connection that I know of. Davwingman had this first. Thanks to Don MacKenzie for the photo.

Thank you Jeff.  Republic ended up with LaFrance.  There were two other truck companies that started with R that were the factories GM bought.
