The sleeper could have been made by a company called Benhoff Body and Equipment:

It looks close but the rain gutter really drops down to meet the back window and it's a straight line on the ones in the pix. Nice looking truck. You know you have it bad when you can look at a pix of a truck and your brain automaticaly goes into overdrive on what to do to the truck to fix it up

I would feel safe to assume the COE could have been made by the same company. Body lines would be different because of different cabs. Also, in the '48 they used the quarter glass and frame from a '42-48 coupe. Mayby they used windows from a different vehicle. My friend also said they used the back panels from Mack trucks. When you look head on at the '48 it looks like the doors are half open. To make the cab wider they inserts triangluar pieces in the floor and roof so the back of the doors stick out:

I would like to see a front on shoot of the COE to see if they did the same.

I'm sure you've heard this before but I don't have them with me honestly tho, I used my sister's camera, so I'll have to see about uploading them this weekend since I work the graveyard shift.

It's a '54 C800 Big Job semi tractor. the A and B pillars are rotted, some ***** (probably my age) jumped onto the mirror and pulled the top of the door away from the truck on both sides, whoever drove it last MISSED the trailer backing up, smashing the back of the cab INTO the sleeper. their solution was to raise the 5th wheel by putting it on 2x6's, frame's twisted and some of the welds are broke as a result, airbrakes are junk from the compressor to the drums (and he seems to think he can get shoes for $12 a piece ), the 317 lincoln is open on the intake and exaust so it's filled with water, rodents, etc. that's about $3-5k in itself. no floors in cab, both transmissions are seized, the split rims are ready to split for good, the floors/cab corners/doors/hood/fenders/cowl/firewall and every little seam is rotted to death. they drove it into something HARD because the bumper is twisted around the passenger frame horn which bent the fender accordingly. whoever installed the sleeper did an excellent job welding the sides, but for whatever reason used rivets on the back of the cab, which are pulling apart. the seat smells funny but aside from the windshield it's the only solid part of the truck

he seems to think he could restore it for $10k including hired help. I'm seeing $20 doing it myself with ALOT of favors thrown in.

when I told him the price was alittle steep he threatened to crush it. b@stard. If my grandfather hadn't owned one (no sleeper) I would never have bothered with it. oh well. once i finish the payments I can pick it up and start the resto.
