Those are great photos, 51chris

Thank you for posting them.

47-55st (and, earlier) Chevrolet & GMC COEs are beautiful trucks.

Wasn't it Jackie Gleason that always said....... "how sweet it is".
I can tell you have been putting in your "15 minutes a day". You motivate all of us.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Ha thats awesome. The funny part about that pic on da trailer, is that i recently sold a jeep to guy that came with the exact same trailer from Uhaul. And the wheel base look about the same as the jeep on the trailer. Nice project by the way. Keep the pics coming.

What kind of bed/body do you plan to install on it ? Actually with that short wheelbase, it could be a road tractor now?
