We took the tailgate off because it was going to fall off. I must admit that the only thing that thing has hauled besides me, is leaves. I found the truck in Scranton, it was on EBAY about seven years ago. The tailgate is on now.

Thank you Fomoko 1 for the #160 post. I have been looking for 53-56 Merc coe's to get vin numbers to verify where they were built. I just e-mailed the person to see if he will e-mail partial vin. Can only wait and see.As my 56 Merc. coe has a U.S. vin 52 Merc (and some others) and I threw the idea around awhile ago that possibly the 53-56's were all built at Detroit TruckSo far I have only found two other Mercs but no way to contact. Oddly #160 has Ford emblem on the hood as did one in Calgary, Alta. Did a post a while ago asking other Merc. coe owners to step forward, but no luck. May try again in the new year. Happy Holidays.
jmadsen's first pic in post #125 I believe was taken a few miles east of Hobe, B.C. on the Hope - Princeton Hwy. Note the trucks in pics one and two both have sanders on them, good hint as to winter weather conditions on that hwy. Trucked over that road a few times in the 80's, could get a bit hairy.
