Help me identify this old truck.

In early September 1937 my family packed up in western Oklahoma and followed John Steinbeck and his Grapes of Wrath bunch to California to pick grapes. Four of us drove in a sedan and we had hired a man to bring our belongings in a small truck. Probably about the 2nd or 3rd of September we passed through Amarillo, Texas. That is where my wife and I recently spent a couple days. There at the RV park (Amarillo RV Ranch) there is an old truck loaded down with home furnishings that is a tribute to the people who passed by here on old Highway 66 druing the dust bowl.

Interestingly, my 90 year old mother has just finished recording her life story that includes that trek. My wife has transcribed it and I have included several pictures in the story. I plan on adding a picture of the truck. I would like to identify it's make.

Would some of you old truck buffs take a look at the photos at http://freepages.misc.rootsweb.com/~royc/Old_Truck/ and tell me the make and year of it. You will see that the license plate is Texas 1931.

One of my friends on another group said he thought it was a 1929 Chevrolet but isn't sure.
