OK, I just bought the Rio Grande English Version. In reading the back:

"Argentina at the beginning of the 19th Century...."

So what's with the 1950's pickup truck on the cover art of the game?

Yeah, that is truly strange. Even if you grant the fairly common 19th=1900s mistake, the truck is still too modern. Maybe the original theme was set in the late 1940s, with Nazi war criminals settling in Argentina, but that was way too edgy for the general gaming public.... wow
