    I'm surprised this didn't come up when I was looking for antecedents of pontoon bodywork:

    Looks like the Bugatti Aerolithe rear-ended an Airflow.

    This cab has merit with the suicide rear doors but I'd lose the unibody stylized shorty rear box. Oddly enough 40 or 50 years later this does bear a resemblance to the chevy avalanche in dimensions

    Last one? That's a Tempo Matador, not a Ford-AMC joint venture but a c.1950 front-wheel-driven light truck powered by a VW flat-four behind the seats.
