  • 1948 Chevy COE

    I saw my first COE pickup truck 2 years ago. 6 months later I started the build. The goal is to take it on the power tour with my dad. Probably most of you know, but for those that do not, Chevy never made this style of cab with a pick up bed. Most were used as grain trucks, flat beds, delivery trucks, and we believe mine was a Pepsi truck in Kansas.
