Sorry for the quality, this pic was taken in California in the mid 50's and not 100% sure it's a COE. Anybody got any ideas? Picture is from Facebook group -- Automotive Memories ---

George, I honestly don't know but I am wondering if it is a Mercedes. Wayne

George, I believe this may be a customized GMC for Arrowhead Water out of California, from around 1950. If you have Donald F. Wood's book, "Beverage Trucks:1910-1975 Photo Archive, look on page 92. Sure looks like the same truck to me.

That's some nice detective work David, that is exactly what this is. I thought I had that photo somewhere but you'll have to get a copy of the book.
