Looks like a long bed 37-220, if I had to guess. Missing one of the hand wheels, on the left.

Very hard to date precisely, that was Delta’s golden age. The closed bases disappeared around 1960. Here is one from the late 50's . The base of the jointer (not the stand) on similar models had a flared lip that disappeared circa 1952. Here is a very similar 1953 model.

They were designed to take a wide range of motors, from 110V 1/3 hp, 220V, all the way up to 3-phase for industrial use.

Looks like it needs some work, but it would be a superb machine. Love the cast iron stand.
