I don't think it's a W-L, cab's wrong, hood sides are wrong.... Even if this were a ptototype, why use a competitor's cab?

:crazy:

Ward La France, 1941 Model 106, 6 ton 6 x 6, but probably built in the last four months of 1940 or first couple of 1941.

Two built I think, W-00949 wrecker and W-00950 cargo.  The unusual thing here is the USA number, as W-00xxx prefixes were usually only assigned by Uncle Sam to wreckers and special purpose vehicles, so I would expect USA W-00950 to be a wrecker rather than cargo.

Note also the Tri-Master cab ventilator, and the small pod lights on top of the main headlights which were really only found on trucks around September 1940 to March 1941 as a result of the switch to sealed beam main headlights.  Prior to September 1940 they usually stuck with non-sealed beam, and after about Easter 1941 they had the more common standard US Army small blackout pod lights to use.

My sort of truck, and my sort of time period, though unfortunately not my sort of fuel consumption.  This was probably a formal factory portrait, and the vehicle was probably sent to the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland for testing, then retained there or allocated elsewhere for facility use till it was retired.

I'm sure Jeff will post the wrecker shot in the follow-up.
