I went to Barrett-Jackson car auction last month. Without a doubt, my favorite vehicle for sale is this 1941 Ford COE (Cab Over Engine) truck. Although it looks like a big rig, the truck is about the size of a modern day Ford F-250. I tucked a photo of my ’54 Chevy into the gallery because I think the two vehicles would look perfect next to one another in my garage.
This is what the builder had to say about his truck:
The ’41 cab has a 2″ chop, custom firewall and floor pan. Shaved door handles. Interior has custom dash and over head console with stereo CD and radio. Frame shortened 15″ and complete boxed with ’79 3/4 Chevy front end with 3″ drop spindles on disc brakes, air bags and shocks. Rear end is Ford dually Dana 40 narrowed 6″ with 4.10 gears. Drum brakes triangular 4-bar. Five gallon air storage tanks with two air ride compressors with 3/8 air lines. Engine is a 1995 Lincoln 4.6L Fuel Injection with Ford AOD transmission. 400 miles since built. Autometer gauges. Vintage air. Pirate Jack power brake system. Lokar shifter. Custom built 15 gallon gas tank. The flat bed is 9 1/2′ x 5’3″ custom built with oak bed and aluminum strips. Bed tilts back for access to engine, storage compartments and gas tank, which is all custom built.
