Hi jose,
That is a great pic of the Buick but IMO The blurry car in the background is a '39 Oldsmobile.

Hi Sturm,
Nice pic, thanks! But it is 1940 model.
Cheers!

Hi Sturm,
I agree with ilfil. The differences can be very difficult to distinguish in a lot of photos. For information, the major difference between the 1939 and 1940 models is the number of bars in the radiator grille. The 1939 has 17, the 1940 has 16. It is easiest to count the number of whole bars above the hole for the starting handle, there are 13 on the 1939, 12 on the 1940. The side lights mounted on the wings are a further indication, they were only factory fitted to the 1940 model, but were sometimes added as an upgrade at a later date, so cannot be considered a definitive identifier for the 1940 model.
I hope this is helpful for future identifications, first the 1939 with retro-fitted sidelights, the standard 1939, then the 1940.
Kerry.

Hi Kerry,
No need for annoying bar count, one of the main differences is immediately visible, and it is the radiator grille header, much wider on 1940 WA and WB models.
IMHO the marker lights on your 1939 truck aren't retrofitted but it is of Benelux origins. GM Continental used to fit them from 1937 on.
Cheers!

Hi Jose,
Judging from the size of the bed I would say this is the V-8 1940-42 1 ton F3, in Dearborn terminology. I'm not sure of the equivalent Köln type designation but I think that one probably had single pane windscreen.
Or maybe it is an umbau based on that chassis?
