harposrepair This is what I found when I looked up "First COE".
https://autocartruck.com/about#history
America's First Truck

1899 - Ardmore, Pennsylvania
Autocar was at the heart of an industrial revolution when it built the first motor truck commercially available in the United States in 1899. The Autocar delivery wagon boasted a payload capacity of 700 pounds and optional 5 or 8 horsepower motors. The “engine-under-the-seat” design maximized area for freight and was the precursor of Autocar’s Cab-Over-Engine design used on every Autocar today.
The first Autocar truck was also “purpose-built,” in this case, to carry and deliver packages. Its design was declared to be so simple to use that any driver “can operate it with more safety than he could drive a horse”.
America’s First Truck: Ancestor to all modern trucks and the beginning of Autocar’s legendary dedication to purpose-built vehicles.

bubba1955 I don't have a question at the moment. If anyone does please feel free to jump in.

boothboy Bubba got it! The 1907 Sternberg Was the first true COE Truck. In order to be a COE the vehicle has to have a cab and a cab has to have a roof. A number of vehicles with the engine under the seat predate the Sternberg but no roof. You have to remember that Air Conditioning hadn't been invented yet and those earlier ones were hot.

Sternberg was in business in Wisconsin from 1907-1915 and would eventually become Sterling Trucks.

boothboy Ok Guys no one has figured it out yet. I got a PM that was half correct. If you haven't figured it out yet, this is a trick question.

Here's a hint. What does COE stand for?

First thing I'll end this before it starts.

Brian did not invent the C.O.E.

That being said, which company did produce the first true C.O.E?

Autocar 1899.
