AFAIK these were the property of contractors, and no two were the same.
I can't identify this one: International?  White?

I think that's a Holden cab. Some sort of GM. Bedfords had front hinged doors. There is a ('35?) Chev getting about with a rear hinged door (converted to front hinged) to replace the one that a farmer had disposed of. See it at the odd show.

Those 5 stud disc wheels are as Ford used, but can’t match the bonnet side louvred or the door with anything.

Moving on from my attempted humour linking bird poo to super phosphate. ...

I don't think Bedfords had a single piece windscreen. Reo?

Thanks all: progress, but not finality. Alas, the best element is missing: the grille. I'm familiar with late 1930s Fords, and can't see that this is one (the windscreen). My feeling is that it has to be USA/Canada, not Bedford. I'm happy to side with GM or Reo; I can't see Dodge in that. However, I'm not an expert, and must defer to the many here. I'll keep replying, to bump it to the top so that more members can give consideration.
Regards, Roderick

Sony Paul, no cigar this time. The louvres are wrong. But it looks very similar, maybe a styling change on a different year.
