CWH,
I would haul that truck off to get that eyesore out of your hair, LOL. Very nice, if the engine were more visible I'd consider an ArDun conversion. If you are not familiar, Zora Arkus Duntov, considered the father of the Corvette, designed and built ArDun conversions for flathead Fords, they replaced the flatheads with an OHV Hemi combustion chamber heads, pure sex, I heard the were in limited production again, about $12-16K.
I love COE's, but prefer Bowtie to Blue Oval, does that make me bad?

No, you're not a bad person. I like all flavors of COE. The Ford from 38 to 47 have more character to me. I like them all but the Ford really does it for me. I almost boughht a 47 Ford with a SBC 327 when I bought this. In the end I really wanted a stock truck. The flathead has that unique sound.

There is a nice original condition GM COE at the Texaco Station in Tok. I believe it runs, drives.

Made some progress. Sitting on new and used tires thanks to Marty out in Houston. Rebuilt the trans and re-sealed the engine. New and rebuilt clutch for AK clutch rebuilders. Good folks over there. Engine is back in with new engine mounts. Drive line all back and ready. Gas tank re-sealed and installed. I've been straightening sheet metal in the cab. The doghouse edges are a little tweaked from 70 years of abuse. Got my oldest out there with the body tools. Had to come back to work for a couple of weeks. When I get back home I'll start the re-wire.

Enjoy,

Chris

CWH,
Very nice, great idea for a father/son project. That will be a beautiful truck when done.
Is the transmission a T98? Curious, because I need the front bearing retainer for one.
You should be proud. Shack

Sorry shack. It's not the T98.

Yeah, all three of my boys love the truck. It'd be cool to teach them to drive a manual trans with it. We'll see.

Finished up my truck yesterday. My second son helped with the finishing touches. I completely rewired the truck and converted to 12 volts. The electric fuel pump is awesome. The truck starts fantastic. I drove it just up and down the street. Next I'm home I'll have a new exhaust system built. It sits a lot taller with the 8.25 tires in the rear. I really like the new stance thanks to Marty out there in Houston.

A seriously beautiful truck, good on you for saving a piece of history, and making it a Father/Sons project, also.

Just getting ready to put the old girl away for the winter. Got some good cruises with it around town. Here's a pic of it parked in the back yard and a vid of the exhaust that Mickey's Muffler shop built for it.

Enjoy.

Mickeys Muffler did the exhaust conversions on our Super Duty's at the airport, We had to convert them to front exhaust when we put the fuel setup for fueling aircraft on them. Great shop and work.
Very nice truck, I hope you can pass it on to the boys.

I pulled the doors, fenders, running boards and cab corners off the old COE a few weeks ago. The lower doors on these trucks are a concern for rust so I decided to make sure I got that taken care of first. The fenders are big and heavy and are in real nice shape so I figured I'd get them cleaned up also. The grill will be next but it'll take some work to refurb that back to stock. The previous owner added rubber hood straps. I have the original hood/grill retainers and will re-install them once I get the paint stripped.

Nice, looking like it's being well taken care of. Are those doors able to be modified from a set of truck doors if needed? If I remember right that is what they are mainly, modded truck cab doors.

Can't remember where I found this pic I have attached, but it could provide some inspiration! Not the rust part, the lowwwwww part!
