Helps a lot. Looks like a R-17 to me which was in production from 1968 on, but never offered in the US. Maybe its a different model, but its definately '70s or later (style of the cab).

The most difficult part of building one would be wheels, but both A-line and Herpa offer the Dayton spoke wheels. A-line calls theirs "Mack spoke wheels" while Herpa identifies theirs correctly as Dayton Spoke wheels. The rest of the truck would need to be built from scratch, but I think grilles and louvers from an old locomotive shell could be used to make the sides of the hood and the radiator.
Since typically the early pick up truck cabs were identical to the cabs on large trucks, they just sat higher on top of the bigger heavier truck frames, you could take a Jordan Model A ford pickup kit in plastic and fabricate a larger frame from Plastruct, and install the Jordan body on the frame, using the A-line or Herpa wheels. I would still make a hood from scratch because the engine of a heavy duty truck was a lot bigger than the little 4 cylinder used in the Ford. The cab would not match the Euclid, but could be a decent "generic" stand in for a period correct truck of the late 1920's through the 1930's.
