Hey folks, I have some questions about my "new" COE. First, what do the stock outside rearview mirrors on this look like? Second, the VIN is 5VSF-1146. As I understand it, this means the truck is a '52 in June at Kansas City. Did I get that right? Where can I go to get a parts manual/catalog and a regular shop manual for this beast?

You can go on ebay and find reprints of 1952 Chevrolet Truck Owners/Drivers Manuals, Service Manuals, and Sales Brochures. According to your ID plate, your truck is indeed a 1952 model, 5700 series, with 158in. wheelbase. Send me your email address, and I'll send you better pictures of the original mirror arms, and mirror heads.
