Looks like the same type of truck with a few minor differences .  Mobil probably had a fleet of them or this one changed some over the years.

It looks like one of the large series International Harvester trucks to me. I will see if I can pin down the model and year . I would say offhand it is about 1920-1925.

It looks like the truck is possibly a model 63.

I agree with them being an IHC & a Cletrac, although it looks more like a 20K Cletrac. If the photo was taken in SA, then it's likely the truck is mentioned in one of the SA car books. I'll have a look today to see if there's more info on it.

The tracks on the Cletrac look to be a bit slack. Sure there should not be that much sag in the top.
