Although your Studebaker is obviously an earlier model it could be a choice. I still like International because of the single line name badge..

No - Just had a good look and Internationals had vertical slots in the side panels.

All the 35/36 Diamond T photos (they went much rounder after that) have distinctive removable bonnet side panels.

Here is something similar, still does not look right to me - Studebaker. Bonnet too square and side slots with only one short opening?

I think you are there. Most of the photos are of American trucks. The Australian built bodies - Holdens, Richards etc - whoever made the Studebakers, may well have changed small features to fit their production methods.

********!!! Definitely a Studebaker. Just had a 15 year old wizard bring up the name on some sort of app or program that clears photos.
