1947 Ford COE

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is excited to come across a perfectly designed and impressively built 1947 Ford COE tow truck, which is nicknamed as the "Happy Hooker". It is an amazing, nicely done truck that I'm sure all of the car show participants and lookers will like. Its eye-pleasing Black and Silver paint-job looks absolutely gorgeous makes the truck even cooler. The amount of custom fabrication work that has been done is extremely impressive and definitely done right. The entire tow truck is fully functional and will have spectators pointing and snapping photos every where you take this truck. The interior of the truck is just as impressive as everything that meets the eye on the outside. As soon as you open the door, you are welcomed by plush leather and rest your feet on wood flooring that adds a perfect touch. The amenities that you can enjoy while driving this COE will make you forget that you are in a 1947 Tow Truck. Powering this tow truck is a new bullet proof 350CID V8 backed by a TH350 transmission that both have less than 700 miles on the complete build. The rear end is a very aggressive 4.10 which allows you to use the truck for its intended purposes if you wanted too. This impressive build fits in a standard two car garage! Although it looks massive in the photos, it is actually a perfect size for an all around show vehicle. The truck is equipped with power steering, power brakes and modern stereo and that means you can cruise comfortably for a long trip if its necessary. For over 100HD photos and video of this beauty in action, visit us at or call to speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable associates at 313.982.3100. Come see this beauty in person at 15000 Commerce Dr N in Dearborn Michigan.
