Thanks for the heads up ! I was lucky enough to get one from Koos. Who would have ever thought I'd have a shroud on my truck from the Neitherlands ? Thanks again, and good luck with your COE.

Here is a shot of Big Bertha towing the trailer that brought her home. Looks small now that BB is all together. Also met "cjcat56" along the way and was able to help him out with 4 of the wheels he needed for his56 C600 COE. The HAMB at work!

Great day when we can use these trucks for what we built them for.

I've had it about a year and a half and all I know is it came from Connecticut. There were a few companies that did aftermarket extended cabs at the time but I couldn't tell you which one did this truck. I have some researching to do when I get around to it

A beautiful COE doing what it was built for! Here is another idea that I have seen done instead of the side rear view mirrors that will have to really hang out there to work. Take a look at the wireless back-up cameras that that you would use on the back of your RV trailer. They come with a small TV monitor (GPS size) you can temporarily mount on your dash. A lot of the large motor homes do this too. A friend of mine did it this way to pull his little Scamp travel trailer behind his '34 Ford Roadster and it works slick. The whole setup usually runs under $100 and you can find them anywhere like on Ebay.

Factory tandem axles were not available from Chevrolet until 1956. Anything before that was an upfit from an outside jobber such as Truckstell, Trucktor, Thornton etc. i had a 1954 chevrolet COE chaindrive tandem that was a Tructor Tandem.
