A Rare and Unusual FORD COE
My good friend JERRY over at HANK'S TRUCK FORUM has come up with another stumper. It is this FORD TWIN ENGINE COE.
If you look closely at the grill, you will notice two radiators. Why? This truck had two engines, that's why. Apparently FORD built this truck for military use. It had a 70 foot trailer used for hauling aircraft parts.
What is not known are the specifications, how many were built, what engines were used, what year was this manufactured in? As far as I can find, this picture found by Jerry is the only one on the net. It might have been taken at an ATHS show.
Any further info about this truck would be appreciated -- it certainly deserves more recognition!!
THIS PICTURE WAS FOUND ON HANK'S TRUCK FORUM -- AT THE TIME OF THIS POST IT WAS THE ONLY PICTURE I COULD FIND ON LINE OF THIS TYPE OF TRUCK. MY SINCERE THANKS TO GARY MORTON FOR TAKING THIS GREAT PICTURE AND ALLOWING ITS' USE HERE!!
