My Grandfather - What's that car?

Recommended Posts

I found an old picture of my grandfather and have been trying to date it.

By the look of the car behind him I'm guessing early 40's.

Does anyone know what model and year the car is?

I've spent several hours with Google Images with no luck.

Thanks.

If it were clearer you could date it from the license plate.

Interesting car in trees in background, looks about 1929/30, perhaps Chevrolet or Model A Ford.

Kinda looks like a Ford AA truck to me with those big steel wheels.

The background vehicle looks like a '30-'31 Model A Ford to me.  It could be a passenger vehicle or light commercial.  The wheels appear to me to be the 19" spoke ones those vehicles wore.
