Sorry John, but COE stands for Cab Over Engine. In 1938 they were just known as Ford Trucks. In 1948 Ford started using the letter system. It started with the F1 in the US, in Canada it was the F47 (meaning 4700 GVW) and the F68 (6800 GVW) and so on. The C series as you know it was introduced in 1958 and was a true Cab Over that stayed available until 1985 with the same basic style
[/IMG]

The same cab was used on the fourunner of the CLT series. This was known as the H series
[/IMG][/IMG]
The first CLT Series 1964
[/IMG]
The last CLT 1992?
It's a shame Ford sold out their heavy dudy division to Dalimar in the 90's. They built the best heavy duty trucks for over 80 years
The picture that you have loaded was (or is) a F600 stub nose . The stub nose F series was avalible until 1966
[/IMG]
The COE series started in 1934. this one is the oldest one that I have, a 1937

also Gerry i forgot to metion in regard to the series you mentioned ubove that was the later C series wich came after the the one i posted in the first post. those came out in 53 and were made untill 56?.the second generation C series trucks and the CLT or H series was a popular series alot of fire departments had them and alot were garbage trucks.around here before the town gave up the garbage truck division/pick up they owened a few and the fire dept also had 3 wich they still have one as it is used for training purposes now.after 53 the COE series beacame a seperate series apart from the F series so every thing from the pick truck up to the stake bed,dump truck ect... was under the F series tis is all i know about the C series but i would like to know more about the 53-56? C series.John
