What is it? was created by V8Ian

The stye looks 50s to me, spider wheels suggest probably North American heritage, but could also have a continental European background. 
Inter only offered these wheels/hubs on 180 or greater models. That seems rather over-specced and over priced, however the coach built furniture body would not have suggested an austerity purchase. 
Fiat and some of the German or French makes had spiders, but were they sold here, back then?

Initial reaction is that the front hubs look very Volvo to me.

gudday m8

it L@@ks like a Fageol






The Fageol name emerged once more, in 1950, when the Twin Coach Company produced the amazing CargoLiner concept, billed as a ‘trailer without a tractor’. The bodywork was built by Fruehauf, on top of an underfloor engine and transmission and steerable-turntable, dual-tyred  front axle. Production versions had a conventional front axle and were the precursors of pantechnicon bodies around the world.

Swishy is basically correct.. Fageol built many of these on a longer wheelbase International chassis for the US Post Office.. They were called Hi-Po's and men worked inside the bodies sorting mail as they went down the road and made drop off / pick ups at smaller rural village post offices. There were also some used by the home moving van industry.
