Please help me identify this truck cowl and doors

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this truck cowl and doors.  Was told it was 24-25 Graham Brothers, but when I looked online at photos of that year of Graham Brothers trucks the photos of the dash show a raised area around the instruments on dash center.  This cowl dash does not have the raised area.  Besides, the gauges on the Graham Brothers are scattered across the dash where the one I have they are centralized in a large opening.  Doors have a distinctive body line and I have tried to show that in the photos.  Thanks for any assistance anyone could offer.  Jay

Series “E” truck. Either a Dodge Bros or Graham Bros.

Here is my 29 Dodge Bros 3/4 ton “E” series.

Raised belt line on the cowl is most obvious feature. If no belt line it would be a “D” series. 

WHERE IS THE REST OF IT?

Value ?????? Try eBay to test prices.

If I was looking for these parts and they were in good condition with no cancer I would consider paying $500 . Not many people restoring these “E” series trucks. Not like Model A’s you have a small market.

Why aren't these as desirable as the other series trucks you mentioned?  As for the condition, it is in surprisingly good shape.  I couldn't believe how solid the mounting points are where it attaches to the frame.  If that was a Model A Ford cowl those attaching points would be totally eat up with rust.

Law of supply and demand. You could have a cowl to a one of only one left vehicle. If no one is looking for it, it's not valuable.

I understand the supply and demand idea - just thought maybe they produced a gazillion of them, or that there was something very wrong with them compared to the other series.  Curiosity working overtime I guess.
