Default Canuck?

Cliff may well be right. I believe though that the 1938-9 WD trucks were all US-sourced, most likely CKD from Bloomfield Boxing Plant for asembly at the Rue de Ptolomees plant in Alexandria. That would have allowed the plant to add their own open cab design. I believe that the various Haj transports featured in GM World, Feb 1940 that had woodie station wagon bodies were built in that plant.

As you know the GM Near East plant was bombed, and then as it was clearly useless for anything else, was leased to the WD for essential work on military Chevrolets, etc.
