Nice service/Tow Truck circa 1928, what have we here?

This nice Service Truck/Car appeared in a local FB site. Glace Bay is a community in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia where I attended High School. Bay Motors was a long time GM business there up into the 70's, later renamed Highland Chevrolet. Looks sort of Packard like to me, even has a Rolls look, but any ideas?

I'd second the identification as a Studebaker Big Six, perhaps 1923-'24.  Because of their 354 ci Big Six and rugged chassis, they were popular to convert to tow trucks when their value as used cars dropped low but their utility for other purposes was their value.
