1947 Chevy C.O.E. (Cab over engine) .
Chevrolet changed about mid year 1947 over to new body style , After the war the manufactures used old bodys and equipment from pre world war II , until they could tool back up for civilian vehicles.
I've heard that this was the Art Deco era , but I cannot confirm that.
According to the C.C.C. ( Civilian Conservation Corps or better known as the Colossal Collage of Callouses) cir. 1933 , the average height and weight for a man at that time was 5'-8" and 145 lbs.
So before you go and buy one of these trucks , make sure you can fit into it , it's cramped , like fitting 10 lbs of S#*t into a 5 lb bag.
Plans to turn into Hot Rod car hauler . real cool body style , waterfall grill , bucket head lights.
Original 230/235 cid. 6 cyl. with up draft carburetor , modified for downdraft , explains cut in engine cover pan.
Crank out front split window , vacuum operated two speed split axle.
Previous owner shortened it for towing mobile homes. Brought back from Oklahoma , must have been a hot ride with the cut out in the floor pan.
Real chick magnet , they like to go for rides!
