1941 GMC COE Military Van
01 November 2004
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 had a 1926 Chevrolet Open Express that he sold in 2006 to Mr. Elden Blasco and it headed to San Juan Capistrano, California.
