arrow?  A hybrid; seems to have styling cues of a Kenworth, a bit of a Peterbilt...

With those hood louvers I'd say it's a Fageol.

Fageol louvers offset,,?  Intake stacks,,?,,,,,,and a '46 ford,,?

I am thinking that this was a Fageol c1937 or 38 that was Kenworthized.  Hood and cab look to be from a Fageol background and fenders and radiator guard (if that is what it is) seem to have KW roots.  Not sure if this cab is the same as the early Peterbilt cab or just very similar.

Me thinks this is a Fageolworth too. Warren Richardson had the best answer 1st. This looks to be a late '30's Fageol that has been rebuilt with Kenworth fenders and a Kenworth grille surround. If this was a Pete cab I don't think we would see the trademark Fageol hood louvers with it. The photo appears to have been taken in the mid to late '40's, and by this time Fageol had been out of business for nearly 10 years (1938). If you had a Fageol that was wrecked and needed new nose sheet metal, using parts from another truck may have been your only recourse to keep the truck on the road. Thanks to Don MacKenzie for the WAI pic; the color photo of the 1938 Fageol is from vwlfan.

If you took the Fageol hood and hammered it to fit the KW radiator surround it would tilt up in front (on the bottom edge) like the hood on the subject truck I think.

I like the "Okie blower" mod.
