Not much difficulty here, these trucks are both early Peterbilts. These 2 wartime dumptrucks appeared in a 1943 SKF bearing ad. It would be interesting to know if the fenders were deleted because these trucks were to be used off-highway, or if it was an effort to save steel during the War. It also looks to me like the front bumpers are made of wood. The headlight buckets look chrome though, which doesn't fit in with the austere look of the rest of the truck. Autocarjim had this 1st. The color photo is from Robert J. Notice this early Pete is chain drive, perhaps a model 364 ? And it looks to me like the early Pete in the other b&w photo has a wooden bumper too.

from "Peterbilt: The Class of the Industry" at Google Books here :

"With the emergence of the first postwar Peterbilts came subtle changes in appearance. While the cab, hood, radiator shell and fenders stayed virtually unchanged over the next few years, the bumper was the subject of continuous experimentation.

The earliest trucks sporting the egg-crate grille were fitted with a smoothly rounded bumper. Next came a utilitarian style, featuring a straight steel channel. In some cases the open end was turned outward and covered by a hardwood board.

Later, an all-steel bumper came into use. This was characterized by a row of four round holes, allowing increased airflow to the radiator. Finally this style was replaced by a type sporting four horizontal slots in place of the holes."
