It's early series NM-1 or NM-2 produced in 1940. A rare beast, only 87 examples of NM-1 and 107 of NM-2 were built.

Sure re-equipped with that dump body.

If my memory serves well that picture was posted earlier by Al (57BCR) and he stated it was Celli construction company truck. I might be wrong on that though.

It looks similar to the L series. What made it a 'N' series versus being a  'L"?

From what I can see the cab sits up higher which makes the fenders more flat, and it looks like the front axel is different. Other than that it does look just like and L.

One other thing-VERY safety conscious fleet-it even has a right hand mirror-all 3" of it! As does the International in back of it. Safety pioneers!  As for turn signals, that is what your left hand was for😎.

It always amazes me that such a simple device as another mirror took so long to be accepted.

Military NM chassis re-cabbed with an L series cab and partial hood for the winters.

The photo was taken in 1948, the NM is a 1944 or '45 unit.

Hah-as for the teaspoon more, look at the side boards- steel. Think of the operator skill of those boys running cable backhoes and shovels.
