    UPDATE! Went back by there to find out and the people that had it moved and took it with them! SORRY FELLAS!!! this was the longest stump ever!


    Came across this today while out doing a little surveying with my pop... don't know what it is but it looks cool. Wouldn't mind having it but I don't know what I'd do with it?

    Anyone have an idea what it is?

    It is very different. I have no clue what it is. Could be a early version of a George Forman Grille. Naaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

    A very cool start to a one of a kind truck possibly?

    That front emblem looks like part of a Mercedes emblem. I'll be back shortly, looking for something on Google.

    it loks as though the front wheels could be driven and it has rear wheel steer.

    Pop thinks it was some sort of ice cream rig... who knows cool though!

    The dog was fine, he was asleep till I clicked the last photo and then he snapped to the end of the chain when I was hightailing it to the truck!!

    I don't know but there is some decent steel there, maybe flip the front around and get a cowl and build sort of a roadster or modified, people would scratch their heads for days tryin to figure it out.

    The fenders look like 41 Chevys as does the cut-down steering wheel.
    My guess is a Shriner's parade car from the late 40s-early 50s. The whole thing is built of pieces of variou cars/trucks/equipment etc. The tail end has the Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon early "spaceship" style to it. The body itself looks like a bumper car or carnival ride cab turned backwards for that speedy look.
    It would be interesting to do something with it.

    it's not in the Wierd Cars book.

    Did you get a chance to look at the chassis at all and see what it might have started life as?

    Take out the center section between the fenders, and use it as a body for a single seat modified!

    It had a lot of angle-iron in the rear, and the rear wheel had a drum setup, very different.

    If I get a chance to go by there again I'm going to get some more photos.
