1951 White COE

from Alex Emond: "This truck is some kind of ugly . If you were to adapt a small (Bambi) Airstream trailer onto the frame and spend a small fortune on it ... you would have the perfect getaway vehicle . I really like the look of this creature . I wonder what the original grille looks like . It's not that big..."-AE
It's for sale in Eureka, Montana. It's up on Hemmings:
1951 WHITE COE truck. Very little rust. It's exterior skin rust, east to fix. Title. Rolls and steers. No engine or transmission. Short wheelbase. Mostly complete but passenger seat frame is gone. Nice grill available. The front was sanded by me, because it had filler I wanted to sand off to be sure there wasn't rust there. No other filler. Solid, rare, coe project. Decoliner clone?
Price: $5,000 firm
