Old COEs (47-55st Chevrolet and GMC) are trucks you grow to love.
You are sitting on top of the world in a handsome odd-looking truck.
I used to take people for rides in my Z-series (1954-1955) 2-ton GMC COE
]. They immediately showed SEGs that lasted for a long time.
We totally restored all the mechanicals and paint. It was/is a beauty and it drove surprisingly nice. Drive one that has good/tight steering and good brakes/hydrovac. However, I bet its stopping distance was quite long when carrying a load?
The 1939 models are particularly beautiful/handsome.
