Grandfathers delivery truck

I know this is not a land rover, but I also know there are a bunch of motor heads on here... so I am going to ask.

I recently found a picture of one of my grandfathers delivery trucks from when he owned a coca cola bottling company. I am trying to figure out what kind of truck this is!?!??! A 38 ish Dodge is close... but I can't find an exact match on google... (I know ... SHOCKING)

If anyone knows... please do tell

It does look like photos of a 1938 Dodge 1-1/2 ton truck.

My guess would be that's an International.
