cab looks to be in good shape.

judging on the angle of the bed I'd say the frame is a little rough.

Bet ya a beer it's a wood body collapsing around the frame.

Dear Rick,

 

Please refrain from such prolifically large image representation, my pc simply cannot handly the pixel output.

 

Thank you...

Can you make those pics smaller?

Maybe less detail?

I want a COE to build as a hauler, with a sleeping cab and a Cummins.

I had a friend who had a hard time giving one of these away - the COE chevy, along with many other 40ish trucks was on her property (left by the prior owner) - a true "yankee yard"

There are lots of years and model COEs I do not like. The same vintage Chevy ala Jeepers Creepers, I/m not fond of, It's just too flat in the front. Although, I like FCs, go figure. The 48-early 50 fords, not my thing either... Mid to late 50s are nice body styles, but BIG!

 

I guess I come by it all honestly as I've loved the 1940 Ford CAR body style since I was a teenager. This is a 1941 and very similar.

 

My plan is a DD pickup.

 

I'll see if I can get some smaller pictures.

It followed us home!!!... It's rough, we'll see what happens after a media blast if there's anything left. It was a Coca Cola truck until being sent to farm haying duty.

 

Anyone ever built a rotisserie? I was thinking "poor mans", just something that would bolt to the cab mounts, allow me to pick it up with the lift and allow it to be tilted over onto it's back... Sort of an L shaped thing under and behind... This thought quickly followed with why not build a real rotisserie. ideas?

 

 

Anyone need a flathead V8??

A buddy of mine did one of those a few years ago, he got a picture of a delivery truck from someone at Coke and did it up. I think he bought the truck in NH, some where up around Meridith heading over to Gunstock, I saw it there before he bought.
