In this episode of the COE build, the cab is being fitted up after shortening up the wheelbase so the back of the cab and the front of the bed will come together right where they are supposed to. This isn’t rocket science, but it certainly need measuring and fitting and some thought to make this whole project actually come together. This is really easy to screw up, and Bello isn’t going to do that.
There is some creative thinking going on here and we love it. Bello is the dude, that’s for sure. This is going to be a cool project and I can’t wait to see it done, but I’m sure enjoying watching the process and seeing Bello do his thing. They are entertaining, that’s for sure.
Whenever I see a COE, which stands for Cab Over Engine, I wish I had one. I have always thought a COE ramp truck would be cool, or even just a slammed COE pickup. They are just cool looking since they are stubby up front and everything. So when Bello started up on this 1950 GMC COE project I was pretty stoked to see it. He’s starting with a late model Silverado Dually that he’s bagging and using as the base for this fun project.
Tearing down the GMC cab and the rest of the Silverado engine bay. Installing the new wiring harness. Dropping the GMC cab onto the Silverado chassis. Fitting the cab so that it lays rocker and creating body mounts.
