    It's got a buttload of rivets for the bubble top!

    I can see the mounting holes for the turn signals on top of the fenders. Did you get a look at the taillights?

    Actually this is an art piece from a cat named Arthur Radebaugh who did alot of futuristic type art. Look him up if you like the 40s/50s sci-fi type stuff...

    Looks like it might have been Frank DeRosa's first attempt at the "King Of The Mercs" or the "Shark".

    I'm still worried about that poor dog.
     
  13. Looks like a 50s tow motor, those things used to tow aircraft around?

    That horrible green thing in the background, looks like a Nissan??

    No matter what it is, you could make a cool car from it!
     
  14. I,m sticking to the theory that it had a flight of stairs in the middle section. Here,s a lousy pic of passengers boarding a Lockheed Constellation in the 1950,s. It,s 02.20 AM over here and i,m ready to hit the sack. You guys had better come up with something better by tomorrow. ( google it ) Still think the best bet is to just ask the owner.

    It does look like one of the cars from the Kanter catalogs! But i actaully think it's a Pitney Kreech...
     
  16. The bumper end is definetely '40 Olds. Valley Custom had a love for them. Yup, I think Rikster would know.

    And yet I can also see a Shriner driving it, making wild loops in a small town parade.

    DO NOT ask the guy in the house and spoil our fun, please.

  18. Big T -

    Nice link, amazing art, nifty van.
     
  19. See how it has more snaps or rivet holes on the back section? The top and center body may well have either been canvas, or had a canvas cover.

    There's a few issues I see with the flight of stairs deal for planes - it's a hodgepodge of too many parts, rather than all being one make modified to carry the stairs; and with three wheels it can't be too stable for something tall. That makes me doubt it was an ice-cream truck, unless it was a plus-size version of something like a Cushman Package Car - but there's not a lot of room for a big cooler on there.

    Usually a parade car just has the top lopped off, or they shorten the hell out of it, but this could be along those lines - maybe used to pull a float as was suggested, too. But it's not hard to see a guy dressed up as Buck Rogers in the pilot's seat waving to the crowds and the middle just covered in airplane canvas because it was easier to shape that than find metal shapes to weld together in a long tapered curve.

    However, if you should buy it and try to register it, may I suggest writing "1943 Douchebottle" on the DMV forms?

    No brand names on the steering wheel, guages, etc.???
     
  22. Is it for sale? Buy that badboy and figure it out later. Whatever the hell it is, it's BADASS. And that green car is no where near a nissan, its a late 80's mustang with some pony or pony want to be wheels. Now the car behind the Green beast is a nissan, like and old sentra somethin of the sort :) I hope I read the nissan comment right.
