Truck to show, or to haul buddies home from the show

Pick of the Day is a 1946 cab-over Dodge car hauler

Want to be the hit of the car show, and perhaps pick up some extra money on the drive home? Pick of the Day is a 1946 Dodge COE — Cabin Over Engine — truck equipped with a car-hauling slant bed you could use for showcasing your other collectible vehicle or could use to haul home someone’s classic that wouldn’t start after the show.

“In 1939, Dodge presented a completely new designed line of pickups and trucks, with streamlined, art-deco styling front sheet metal,” the dealership advertising the truck on ClassicCars.com says in its advertisement.

“Job-Rated” was another theme for those trucks, the dealership reports.

In the cab

“Dodge tried to offer customers the truck that fit the job they were buying it for. As a result, the Dodge pickup/truck range from 1939 onwards offered an exceptionally large number of available variants, six different payload ratings, a wide range of bodies, more than twenty different wheelbase-lengths were manufactured, and fitted with different sized versions of the Chrysler-sourced inline six-cylinder side-valve engines.”

The dealership, located in Denver, Colorado, says the 1946 COE has a diamond-plate bed with storage compartments, aluminum ramps and a winch.

The body sits on a 1968 Dodge chassis and is titled as a ’68 vehicle.

In the cabin there are a tilt steering column, air conditioning, custom gauges with GPS speedometer, ratchet shifter, gray leather seats and black carpeting.

Powering the truck is a 5.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel and an automatic transmission. The truck has power steering and power brakes, with discs on the front wheels. 

The truck is priced at $38,900.
