Check out this custom 1947 Ford COE I found at the 2020 Grand National Roadster Show.. The owner tells Me that His family has been in farming for generations.The bed wood is just beautiful black walnut wood.The family farm is a walnut farm to it’s cool to have been able to work that into the build.
Covered in a custom mix green color. With a pearl hint to it.It looked good under the lights but out is in the sun is were it really come to life I am told. This 1947 Ford COE started life as a tow truck.It had been converted to a flat bed when the owner purchased it for this project.
It’s a Ford with a 383 Chevy under the cover.I would prefer to see a manufacture matching Ford.But it is still a very cool build.The interior is all custom and very fitting for the build.As nice as the interior is. It still has a heavy duty truck look to it.
Wheels are always a personal choice but the 22.5 semi wheels cut down to 22 10 lug work well in my opinion and I can’t think of a better choice.This 1947 Ford COE from the 2020 Grand National Roadster Show is no doubt a custom Hot Rod but it still has that heavy duty truck look about it./ ScottieDTV
