            Hi,

            Does COE stand for Cab Over Engine? It kind of threw me there for a second. In my other careers COE always stood for code of ethics.

            How cool it would be to find one of those old streamlines step-in vans and restore it!

              Yep, Mike; Cab Over Engine.

              I see the "easy-to-service" claim was preparing mechanics for the joy of removing (and getting back in place!) Chevy Astro Van engine covers two generations later!

              Nice brochure; thanks for posting. BP

              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

              Ayn Rand:
              "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                That full van body in the brochure looks very much like the barn find I made a few years ago. Unfortunately, I had nowhere to store a 10-foot-high vehicle. It was later sold, and I don't know its current whereabouts. Look for pictures of it in Fred Fox's part two article on Studebaker Cab Forward trucks in an upcoming issue of Turning Wheels.

                    That would be so cool to make in to a modern interior RV. At least it would on the road and seen by a lot of people and great publicity!

                      Ever since I read the article in Turning Wheels about the COE's, I've fallen in love with them all over again. The brochure is icing on the cake. I really do appreciate your posting them.

                          The rear end in the brochure of the #1 posting was refered to as a "double reduction".. I got up parts for one on a GMC when I first started in parts at a GMC dealer in the mid 50's.. A little different but very simular.. The later two speed truck rear ends were altogether different..

                            I wonder why we don't see more of these?!? To me they are amazing.

                              Neat, thanks for posting.
                              I really enjoyed the recent TW article about them.

                              I can understand most of the bodies being vendor items, but I'm surprised that Sudebaker would make and sell the dump truck.
