Below is a link to a Mecum Auction held in Houston, TX during April of 2015 of a beautifully restored 1930 Rugby Truck.

Re: 1930 Rugby Truck

Not seeing this in the Registry I don't think. Without the info it could be 1929 model year Sept 4 1928 to July 31 1929 (1001 - 6000)or 1930 model year Aug 1 1929 to Dec 31 1929 (6001 to end).
Interesting to note all S4's in the Registry are Leaside with T serials US or Can owned.
The model is S4 in US and S, S2, S4 in Can per aftermarkets.

Correction I can read the vin plate which looks brand new. Model S4 serial 1362, Durant Motors of Michigan. However both Terry and Steve have it as T 1362 with W5 serial 577793, owner Michael Kisber. (Steve Seemuth before that) VIN puts it as a 1929 model year. Wonder if the restorer picked up a new Lansing plate instead of Leaside and forget to put an L or T at start. Numbers are all in a row neat and tidy, not the way the orig serials are stamped.

Bet the plate was bought off Nostalgic Reflections like the identical one on eBay 201206707865 Ah ha about stamping. If you are interested, Nostalgic Reflections can stamp the numbers on the plate for your restoration; for an additional $8.75 per pad. This plate has 2 pads.

Number of hits in Google for Michael Kisber collection
See http://www.kisberenterprises.com/vehicles.html and Rugby is there. Guess site has not been updated on the sold vehicles.
