From Will :

          Here is another progress update on my 1941 COE. I will send a couple more when I get the flat bed put on her.

          Thank you for all your hard work on this website. I have met many nice people through stovebolt and I have gotten some great advice .

Thanks again,

From Will:

          Here is a progress report on my COE. I have rebuilt the engine putting in a 1960, 235 hydraulic engine. I also had the transmission gone through.

          The cab was completely disassembled and sandblasted and primed. Once I got it back from the sand blasters, I brought it to a good friend of mine who has a body shop on his property. Over a six month period, we did all the body work and painted each piece individually. The fenders are black as well as the sun visor. I have put the doors on and the glass is all in. I am almost done with the wiring of the truck

         I am now installing the wiring harness and then the fenders and nose get put back on. I have converted her to 12-volt as well as electronic ignition and a few other small mods to make it a bit easier to drive.

          The last thing I have to do is a brake job and find a seat for her.

          I should have her on the road by this summer. It has been just over two years since I bought this truck and I am having alot of fun working on it. I will send pictures of the completed project in the next several months.

          You all are so wonderful to have such a awesome website. All the people that I have talked to on Stovebolt are all so friendly and helpful. I look forward to talking to you soon.

From Will:

          Here's my new project. It's a '41 Chevrolet COE. I'm not sure if it's a 2 or 2.5-ton truck.

         It's spent it's life in central California, so there's very little rust. I was told like everyone else, that "it ran when it was parked" about 25 years ago. Well, they were right as it fired right up when I got her!

         I plan to keep this truck as original as possible, with a flat stake bed built. I have lots of work to do, starting with the brakes. If anyone has a good source for brake components, I'd appreciate the tip.
