Cool Re: New Twist on a 1947 Ford COE Build

Subscribed. I would love to do a COE for a ramp truck for our body shop. You know just for the advertising. Yeah right I would drive the hell out of it , and haul everything on it but sailboat fuel.

The week after New Year’s was a Hmmmm week. We needed to come up with a good structural plan to c notch the rear end. We had a couple of ideas that we thought might work, but we were concerned about if they would be strong enough to handle the weight. So we decided to get some help from Dave at One Up Offroad to give us some feedback on our plans. He was very helpful and we decided to scrap our idea and go with Dave's. It was definitely a more structurally better way to go. With our new plan in hand we headed to the shop to make a template for the parts that we were going to have CNC. The parts were going to take a week to make, so we moved on to engine placement. In that process we decided to box in the frame from the cab to the rear axle for better strength. We measured up the parts and made templates for the motor and transmission mounts and sent them to be CNC. We received our parts for the c notch on Thursday and we are back at it.

We need a 5" drop ii back

Parts that will make up the c notch. Made out of T1 steel for a little more strength.

Trail fit on the bench

All the parts to make our c notch


Fine tuning the fit

More test fitting. Will start to weld in on Monday.

Nice progress. You might consider a different engine placement. I have a SBC on the stock mounts for a GM 1 ton pickup chassis, and even with my slightly larger 49 Ford COE cab, I have a pretty large engine cover inside the cab. I would look at putting the engine behind the cab, you can squeeze the front of the engine under the back of the cab. A BBC will be even larger than my SBC.

Wow subscribed! That looks like it will be very nice. I'd like to come down sometime and see it maybe.

If you need help, "will work for pizza"

Starting to box in frame for better strength. Blasted the frame and gave a good coat of weldable primer to the inside frame for protection and for good solid welds.

Tack welded the parts in the frame and now ready to start building and placing the new motor mounts and cross member. We decided to design the mounts so that the motor and trany will be able to drop out the bottom of the frame. This will give us more flexibility when building the box on top. Chris laid out the new cross member on his table and pieced the parts together for a prefect fit.

The parts test fitted and ready to be welded.

All welded up and ready to place the new cross member in the fame.

The cross member is temporary tack welded in for fit. It will be bolted too the frame on the side and bottom.

Used the same techniques on the transmission cross member.


Motor and transmission in new resting place and all leveled out.
