It looks Dodge-ish to me.

A friend of mine is interested in finding out anything about this truck. It belonged to his grandfather.

Erik:
not a Dodge Brothers ...I just sent a 1915 DB to Australia ...I had owned that car for 30 years ...the fenders are not correct and the cowl is not concave in front of the windshield ...also DB had a raised area on the front of the rear fenders where there was a grease fitting for the rear spring bolt ( also you should be able to see the rear spring in this view ) not sure what make chassis BUT not a DB ...always an optimist gene french

You're right Gene, on taking a closer look. The details say a lot. The second one looks like a Dodge too but something looks off about the radiator cap and apron where the crank goes through. That guy is going to get scratched if he is not careful.

I think both of them look like Chevrolet. The first one late '10s, the second one, early '20s (missing the bow tie).

You're right Wayne. Looks like quarter elliptical springs on the second one. Common on 20's Chevrolets.

I don't know if I am right or not. But that was my second thought for the first one, and first thought on the second photo. My first thought on the first photo was Dodge, then I realized the fender curve wasn't quite right. Delivery trucks can be a little tricky. Body and windshield cues are different than with the open cars we see so often.
