i'll side with the Jimmy gang. But I think that hood badge indicates a Cummins in her. It sure looks like the original Cummins decal, Or, am I seeing a peanut butter sandwich?

You're right,Doug. That ain't no peanut butter sammich on that hood. Definitely a Cummins badge. Rare indeed for that time.

logged in extra just to be part of this beauty.  Looks just like the New Jersey Proctor GMC, that one is described as a 110.

It's unanimous, which in this case means everyone is right. This big tractor is an early '30's GMC T-95, the one of the largest offerings in the GMC lineup at the time. GMC built these handsome brutes from 1931 to 1934. The truck in the color photos below is the 1931 T-110 Bruce mentioned. Except for the hood side panels there is not much visual difference between these two models. Joe "Chocko" Ditchcus had this 1st. The b&w is a Joe Wanchurra photo. This truck was around 15 years old when the photo was taken in 1948.
