Not mine but we went to the Barret/Jackson pre-sale event Saturday January 21st 2023 in Scottsdale. Nice looking truck from Indiana State Patrol. Probably early 1930 with a Hercules body. Lot number 430. Has '30 engine attachments ie valve cover, intake manifold, air cleaner. "30 chassis, and brakes. Has "29 gauges and for a '30 Hercules truck body not out of the realm of possibilities. The only part I would question is that front apron. Being a truck it should have a truck front apron, not one from a car. I can only speculate that this part was swapped out some years back or it was lost/damaged and this was the one found as a replacement. Not a big deal and can be changed if desired. Truck has a newer style radiator core.
Having never gone to Barret/Jackson before we didn't know what to expect. The event was larger than we anticipated so we did not get through more than maybe 20% of what was there. Left about 4 pm to avoid the rush out of the parking lots at 5 pm closing. Thousands, and thousands of people.

Looks like someone made a parade vehicle out of a panel truck. Definitely an attention getter. Headlight cross bar and rest of the vehicle that I can see clearly is truck so the front pan is certainly a replacement.
To be completely accurate the 1/2 ton chassis was not the same as 1928 passenger. The rear cross member has the shape and brackets for mounting a spare tire and rim. The passenger held a gas tank. The gas tank on the 1/2 ton was under the front seat. FYI The 1929-1932 1/2 ton trucks also had rear spare and gas tank under the seat.
I looked up the vin on Barret/Jacksons site for lot 430 and it started with 6ac so it is registered as a '29. One of my '29s is a 6ac as well but I can not remember if it was the landau or the coupe. The coupe was manufactured in the Janesville WI plant, and the Landau was manufactured in Oakland CA.
There are a lot more pictures on the Barret/Jackson web site.
