Question, First with the motor mounted that low in relationship to the rear end will the driveshaft angle up and if so is that a problem. Second, is there room for carburator under the seat. Still struggling with motor location. Just got the cab yesterday so soon I will have a better perspective when i set the cab on the frame. Thanks Tom from wisconsin

Forget the updates, just send me your address and I'll come grab it so you have more room to work on customer's cars.

I am new to this site. What a great looking bunch of trucks. It inspires me! I'll have to get back to my 39 ford COE and get it done. Burned out a few years ago but its time to get back to it.

Hello, do u know if there is a difference on cab sizes between 1 ton and say 4 ton gmc coes of this year. Thinking of buying one close by. Just noticed that the one I'm looking at the top of the grill looks like it hinges. The one I'm looking at is suppose to be a 40.

From all the research I have done on '39-'40 GMC's, they are all the same cab size.
I believe mine is a 3 Ton.
The top half of the grill hinged means it was a diesel model, the gasoline ones are like mine, all one piece.

Ol46, and shelbyguy1, Welcome to the HAMB.
Please go to the Introductions area on the main page and do a proper introduction.
It is a rule here, it will save you some grief from other members as well.
Then join the COE group, lot's of great information there too.

I think my New Years resolution is to get back on my COE!!!

I think I have you guys beat...I've been working on my COE for about 10 years and it is still not roadworthy. Not giving up yet! This is the year it hits the streets.

Bill has a ton of pics of my 41 Ford on his web site. I have posted a few here from time to time. I guess I should post a build thread.

I like seeing what you guys come up with.

kscarguy, you should do a build thread,
I'd like to see the progression on your build.
It is seeing ones get done that gets me going on mine again.

You can do just about anything you want with one of these stub nose trucks, 30 years ago no one wanted them, now every one wants one, LOL.
