Default 1942-45 WC 52 Weapon Carrier

You are right, someone has dropped on a cab and made the cowl 'fit' Looks like late '42 or '43 as it doesn't have the early or late features.

If I was local and it was cheap I'd have it, as the cab has probably been copped to leave the original dash, instruments, and controls, all of which will really have appreciated being out of the weather for however many years the cab has been on.

Here in the west, any old Dodge 4x4 (say pre 1960) is referred to as a Power Wagon.
He has it listed with Kijiji Edmonton with different pics. It says it's in Strathcona County but the postal code is closer to Edmonton.
