I used to hate the looks of CEOs but I have learned to love them. I wish I was 20 years younger I would love to have a GMC COE book mobile to make it into a travel vehicle.I couldn't find the picture that I wanted so this will have to do. []

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.

I love the look of COE’s. I agree Tim, that they are a bit odd looking, but that’s what makes them desirable. I would love to own and restore one but it’s not in my future. Literally too big of a project in every aspect for me.

However, I respect the time, money and perseverance it takes restoring one of these beauties. I’m drawn to them every time I see one!
