Hamish has it, this truck is a Vim from the late 'teens. I don't have the model info but George may very well be right. Vim built trucks in Philadelphia from 1913 to 1923. The early Vims used a Northway engine, but by 1918 Vim powered their trucks with an engine of their own manufacture. A few years later Vim went back to purchasing engines from Continental and Hercules. Thanks to Bill White for the WAI photo. The color photo of a 1917 3/4 ton model is from Warren Richardson. And the 1916 ad is from Dan Souday.
