    Just came across this thread and what I beautiful, well documented build!

    Now that you are putting some miles on it, any update on how the rear radiator set up is working and if you are getting any noise in the cab as air moves thru the tunnel?

    I am getting ready to start a 1938 ford COE car hauler build using a 1989 P30 motorhome chassis and many of your engineering ideas will be very useful along the way. I had planned to do the conventional front radiator but after seeing your approach I am open.

    Here is a 1947 I am wrapping up restoration with some improvements to make it the best driver possible and keep the original 1947 flavor.

    Thanks for sharing all of your ideas and challenges along the way and congrats on one of the very best car haulers I have ever seen!

    :D Hi Sander .Outstanding,Sir.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
  16. Great build. Wasn't a fan of the later grills at first, always been a fan of the round ones. Yours changed my mind. I'd like to get another Coe some day and make the low/short bed style. For now I must focus on my current project. Your build is inspirational. Thanks!

    That's fitting the COE and your Plymouth are the best 2 builds on the HAMB. in my humble opinion any way.

    Hey Sander, now that you have had a chance to put some miles on the truck, I have some questions.
    Does the engine run cool with the radiator behind the cab?
    Do you get much noise/drumming from your air duct to the radiator?
    Anything you would change? or do a little different?
    Thanks for the incredibly well detailed build :)

    That is a beautiful COE. I will use a few of your ideas for my 47, I am working on a motor mounted under the back of my cab for a flat front floor.
