Looks earlier to me. Probably truck, and I would guess no newer than 1936…….but that’s a shot in the dark. Cable brakes were quickly disappearing by 1935.

I was thinking Chrysler, but they had juice brakes from the start, unless they went back to cable for a while at some point. When looking at the photos again, the pitman arm is on the right side, so maybe this was for a righthand drive car that might have had different requirements for cars imported/sold in that country.

Looks like the standard left-hand drive axle to me. Definitely has Chrysler looks, but those mechanical brakes don't make sense for Chrysler.
