Ramirez it is, and everyone has the right answer, with Stretch leading the way. This is a 1964-68 model, and is actually a pretty good looking truck. Here is some additional info Bill White sent when we ran a Ramirez a while back. Thanks to Bill for the photo too.

A little Ramirez history. Don Gregorio Ramirez Gonzalez was born in the state of Nuevo in 1913

 to a poor family and ended his schooling in the 5th grade. But in time his fortunes would come

 when he evolved a small trailer repair shop in 1946 that would become Trailers de Monterrey

and then Grupo Industrial Ramirez. Sr. Ramirez was a visionary and a giant in the truck

manufacturing world.  The first heavy trucks to hoist the Ramirez nameplate appeared in the

 late 1950’s and were designated the R-12, which only had a single powered rear axel. These

 trucks featured a double frame, 23 leaf rear spring suspensions and a 180hp Cummins diesel

 engine. Mexican truck drivers said that this rugged rig could withstand a rollover intact except

for some damage to the windows, exhaust pipes and other ancillary items. The drivers called

 this model the “Square Cab”, a design that was carried over to the R-15 model which was also

longer in the hood and a bit taller in the frame. And extra rear axel was added to the R-15 but

it generally was not a powered unit, just a tag axle. In 1964 the lighter R-18-2d was introduced

 and by this time the truck owners wanted a twin powered rear end setup, called a “twin

screw”, so it was added to the lineup of extras. Drivers nicknamed this truck the “Commando”
