The COE Bill linked to was a "RARE" 450 series 3 ton,'54 model COE. The 450, & 470 series COE's are harder to find than the more common 350 series 2 ton COE's. The 450, & 470 series COE's have larger fenders, & steps, than the smaller 350 series COE's. They would be worth a tad more. And you noticed the '54/'55 450, & 470 COE's have the round park lights, & not the square park lights. Also they have separate wiper motors mounted above the windshield.

That's a cool COE. The other trucks in the background don't look so bad either!

Is the factory speaker and grille still kicking around? They tended to fall out of the headliner and disappear sometime before JFK was elected.

So rcancona, have you decided what you are going to do with your truck?

I'm inclined to keep it. I really hadn't thought of even selling it until I got that phone call. I know I won't sell it for what he offered. I think it will look pretty good up and running hauling one of my IH tractors around.

The grille surround? That was the '54 GMC front end design, used on at least 1/2 - 2-ton trucks. Standard trim trucks had it painted white with a chrome emblem, DeLuxe trucks got the chrome with painted emblem. The chrome grille was also available as an option without the whole DeLuxe package, if memory serves.

I just bought a 55 cab only COE for $1000; more than average rot. and spent $500 shipping it. I've seen others priced between $1500 -$3000. I would say $3000 is a fair price depending on rot.
