Just a thought, I have the book "Ford Trucks since 1901" (I think that is the ttle) so I will check out this particular model to see if it mentions that the truck was used by the Americans. I may also have a sutable military vehicle book to refer to.

By implication from the URL I posted it could always be a captured German truck.

The book is 1905 onwards (close). The truck was available in 1940 and 1941 in America. In 1942 it had a facelift, with a rectangular grille with 5 sections of 3 (I think) vertical bars. There is a picture of a short wheelbase (shorter than the model) military 1941 model which surprisingly was gloss painted and had chrome bumpers and headlight bezels. There is also a picture of a 1940 model converted to 4x4 again I suspect with the shorter wheelbase though it is almost a front on view.
