This looks similar to one a while ago, I'll say Stewart.

I think several of you owe Don MacKenzie a big HUG, he got us started on the right track. This truck is a 1935 Hug Model 19A with a refrigerator body built for Pet Dairy Products. This is a very stylish truck for 1935, in fact I had to double check the date because it seems newer. This is from a company that was best known for their off-highway "Roadbuilder" dump trucks. Unfortunately these new models were not enough to save Hug, as they were gone by 1942. Thanks to Dan Souday for the photo and ad.

Should have realized that the Pet brand was a giveaway for Hug. Pet bought Hugs by the car load for years. I have seen a picture of one Hug truck run by Pet about 1940-41 vintage that used Reo sheet metal, to pointy nosed style. Wish I could remember where I saw it.
