RealRides of WNY - 1947 Dodge COE

Day Four of “Five Days of Big Trucks”

This 1947 Dodge COE (cab-over-engine) is quite spiffy-looking. At first glance we thought the front end looked pretty streamlined, but shrugged it off as being ahead of its time; the staff (me) aren’t exactly big truck experts here at RealRides. Nosing around on the internet we discovered that this truck is wearing, in addition to the custom paint job, what appear to be 1950s Volkswagen Beetle-style headlights faired into the front fenders, as well as VW-style turn signals mounted above them. (See the factory look on the red truck below.) We saw this beautiful car-hauler at the recent Classic Wheels on Main Street Car Show in Hilton.
