You may not be aware of this but the St. Louis area is a hot bed of old trucks. Based on this thread over over at BigMackTrucks.com it seems like every day life on the streets of the Gateway City is veritable classic truck show. Seen here a just small sample of some of the vintage IH’s to be seen.
Do not adjust your screen. This R-190 is not a poorly compressed photo. The cab has modified to allow steel to run the entire length of the truck. Often times this style truck contained a hatch in the roof for the driver to enter and exit.
