I was just perusing the factory parts manuals and discovered something I never noticed before. Up until the end of the 1952 model run the stubby nosed trucks were called Cab-Over-Engine (COE's). Beginning with 1953 and onward, they were called Cab Forward (CF's). Any speculation on why the word "engine" was dropped?

My guess is that the cab never was totally over all of the engine so maybe Ford wanted to match the name with what it actually was.

I think the cabs were basically the same until the introduction of the C and H series tilt cabs. The timing was just before GM introduced their Low Cab Forward (LCF) models. Just wondering if it was just a marketing gambit.

This is my guess.. I believe they are 2 in the same. Coe = cab over engine and cab forward was considered over the front axle. But, you bring them side by side..... they both are over the motor and front axle. To some degree. So my guess really doesn't answer the question. I don't know... maybe they wanted to be different. Kind of like when they got rid of the Taurus and made it the 500. Sales dropped and went back to Taurus.

My COE is stored in the barn for winter, but yesterday was sunny and 35 degrees so I waded thru the snow and fired it up for the first time in a month or so.
Was a great pick me up to sit up there and rev the engine....pretend I'm cruising.
Can't wait for spring!

Thanks for the inspiration. I really need to do that too. It's been languishing for weeks and getting cobwebs. That's not a good sign.

Pulled the truck out today and ran it. Wanted to go down the road but salt and sand kept me from doing it. Summer can't come soon enough...
