I bought this truck off ebay 8-10 months ago. I had every intention of doing a flat bed truck with it. I've since gone a different direction with my collection. The biggest issue. was the height. I don't have a proper garage to put it in. It has been kept under a carport since I got it. I will copy/paste the previous description the owner had. I know VERY little about these trucks. so please don't look to me for a resource on all things COE. I was told the truck runs. but when trying to crank it. there is no power. an electrical issue somewhere. We have the driveshaft out of it to make it easier to move. Be prepared to have proper transportation if you buy it. It's big. long and wide. I can provide the name of the hauler who brought it to me and did an excellent job. The reserve is 3500. 00. I just need to make room. this is an amazing deal. it's worth this in scrap weight. Here is the description the previous owner had Dodge COE. B-4JMA-161. Has every factory option. 12" body lift. one-piece hood. long-wheelbase model. B-4 is the last year of the B series. "J" is the heaviest-duty COE rated at 2-1/2 tons. Optional heavy springs and frame plates. this truck is the strongest available. "M" means COE cab. "A" optional 2-Speed rear axle. "161" is the wheelbase. This truck has a 17. 50 lb GVWR and can be driven with a regular drivers license - Original 265 Industrial Chrysler Flathead. I put in a modern remote oil filter. - Deluxe 5-Window COE Cab - 5-Speed Synchromesh Transmission - 2-Speed Vacuum-Shift Rear Axle - Huge Factory Power Bakes - Heavy Duty Optional Front Axle (5000 lbs) - Heavy-Duty Optional Springs (fronts are 2200 lbs each. rears are a conservative 7500 lbs each) - Heavy-Duty Factory Frame Reinforcement Plates - Fulton Aluminum Sun Shield Visor This amazingly rare truck is a piece of metal art. Ready for finish body work and paint or clear-coat and keep the bare metal hot-rod look. Driveshaft hand-brake works excellent. needs rear brake line. There are dents and dings and even a few rust spots. Overall the metal is very rust free with the exception of a few isolated areas (rear cab line. spot on hood. and curved lower sill). The fenders. floors. doors. and door jambs. cab mounts. etc. everything else is very solid. Wiring needs some updating. Seat is not original. Rear tires are 9. 00x20 military tires with good tread. The fronts are 9. 00x20 with some age checking. but hold air fine. It comes with some spare parts not shown like the front "DODGE" chrome. and the front marker lights (one lens missing). Also included are the factory "Mopar" big-daddy truck mirrors. The lower skirting is missing. For those interested in such things. there is some speculation that the KMA model listed in the brochure (19. 00 GVWR) did not actually exist except as a fully-optioned JMA. This is that model. If you look at the conventional cabs. the "K" had the dual carbs and dual exhaust for an extra 15 hp. However. the COE's use an updraft carburetor. It is highly unlikely they produced a dual updraft COE due to space constraints. Thus the speculation that the KMA lives only in the brochure. If you have or know of a KMA truck in existence. please correct me. Truck is sold as-is with no warranty.
