From Si:

       How about one more (1926 Chevrolet Open Express , 1954 1.5-Ton Chevy COE - "Nadine") Stovebolt? Even a bit more rare! This is my (1940-41?) GMC COE military van. Only 1900 some were built prior to and early in the War. Four wheel drive, dual rears, Wayne body. Just deliverd from "dry as a bone" Colorado!

          It has a brass plate on the hood door reading: "Ordinance Department, Military Spare Parts." The trucks were used for mobil repair shops, parts trucks and machine shops. It even has a smoke stack in the roof for a heater stove or forge!


          Hope you can post it, too and that the Stovebolters like it!

Si has quite a collection. "Nadine" is a 1954 1.5-Ton Chevy COE. He has a 1950 Chevrolet National Ambulance; a 1941 GMC COE Military Van; and a 1947 Chevrolet 1-Ton Panel . Si had a 1926 Chevrolet Open Express that he sold in 2006 to Mr. Elden Blasco and it headed to San Juan Capistrano, California.
