Very nice work!
Can you give us some details or pics of the chassis, drive train, etc? Or do you have a build thread somewhere?

Welcome to the forum. I love the COEs.
Mine's a project. Taking way longer than I'd like but I hope to someday have it nice.
Good luck with your projects.

My grandfather bought a fleet of Ford trucks for his business in the mid-50s including a '56 COE. That truck sat for many yrs on the farm and my uncle sold it probably 4 yrs ago. The new owner wanted permission to keep the old script painted advertising on the doors, so if anyone sees or knows of a blue '56 COE with "George Boone & Sons, Building wreckers, Jackson, Michigan", that's the one. I'm not sure where it went, but think in the Michigan/Ohio area.

I'm heading up next week and there is still a slant cab F500 dump or stake bed, plus an old crane and both have the advertising on the doors; I'll take a pic. I'll ask about period photos of it also. I'm basically curious if it's being built and what the new owner has planned for it.

I spent some time searching on Google but didn't come up with anything, there's so much customization. Anybody know the story on the differentials that came with these, factory? Two-speed? I'm wondering what they're like to drive, that huge steering wheel gives you pause.

they came with either a single or two speed rear. I have a two speed in mine. Great fun to drive. The wheel is big but not any bigger than the f100. ( so I've been told) I never use low diff. I always start in 2nd gear. My truck will run 50mph nicely down the road and with a little push 55. I have the flat 8 in mine. People with the flat 6 might have a different story

I bought most of the components from Midwest Early Ford in Springfield Ohio

All steel
8’ bed sides
Steel fenders — we extended 4”

I looked around for original fenders but found only ones that required significant amounts of steel refabrication

I outlined the build in my “50 F5 COE Build” thread.

https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...coe-build.html

I hope to post the final rear suspension work and finally starting prep for paint soon

Thanks

Unless we get some of that global warming, I think the COE is parked for the winter.....

Global warming is hanging in my neck of the woods; high of 84 today. We're going to the beach tomorrow!

tinman, I know the feeling. We haven't got snow yet but, they pre-treated our roads already with salt. So, my toys are done for the year too.

Decided to strip cab today to put gas tank in. Previous owner did some weird welding to anchor driver seat. So, went further and cut welds to mount seat back in correctly. Looks like i have a little welding to do to make it right. Its strange... The floors not rotten but the metal is cracked. I guess thats the best way ti describe it.
