Looks like an old Road Boss? Can tell without seeing hood. First class 8 trucks I ever became acquainted with.

Definitely has the right size and shape for a Road Boss. There's another one next to that trailer camper. Very decrepit old plow truck. I don't recall seeing any markings on the one in the picture at all but the old plow truck simply said White Diesel on the hood.

I remember seeing White trucks everywhere when I was a kid. White motors in Cleveland employed people I know today. I think they were decent trucks and at one time comprised 4 brands which were White, Autocar,White Western Star and White Freightliner.

I rescued a hood side badge from a broken rusted 

White Construktor. 

 

I'll polish it up sometime and hang it on a wall.

Those were bad ass trucks. I drove one for a time hauling scrap metal. The company also had IH Paystars, Autocars and Macks with steel front ends. Back then trucks had style unlike today. Only KW and Pete are hanging on with traditional looks.

My 2 favorites are the Mack R or DM and any old classic conventional Pete with a flat hood. Example. 379. 

LOVE the "needle noses"...

Not a truck, surely vintage!  1938 Chevy!
