Gotta remember it was a very innovative time Charlie!  It looks like it my be a Diamond T or an International.  Maybe WWII era to haul war materials? ???

Eisenhauer Manufacturing Company of Van Wert, OH made that in 1951 for Roadway. It used modified Chevy sheetmetal with a pair a 302 Chevy inline-6 engines, each driving a seperate axle (only 2 of the 5 were powered).
