I'm not exactly sure of the scale on this.
Could be an early attempt at a RV type motor home?

It's labelled aa a '38 Ford custom van.
Not sure it's original.
The rear windows sure look like they came off a Ford Flex.

I'm not sure where to put these- a misc. thread seems about right?

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

Try doing burn outs with this one and you'll tie your driveshaft in a knot.

At the Ford plant, 1953. Paint schemes were tested on scale models... which in themselves would be worth a few $ today.

2nd last photo badging looks like Austin/Morris, but it's not real clear.
3 wheeled cars never really seemed to catch on here.
Something that light would be in serious trouble running over the pot-holed pavement that passes for roads here.
Wonder if that one is a concept proto-type....

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

i like that VW concept - now that my AC has given up and the trucks on its last legs i could catch a bit more air on the road - but probably a lot more bugs as well so there is that ...........maybe another scooter ? possibly an indian ? or maybe just a newer truck to be practice in my old age

Is that vw van a replica or retro? It is only 2/3 or less the size of a regular vw van or those people are giants.

I'm not sure on this at all- willys are far above my limited automobile knowledge ceiling.
Cover plate on the floor over the transmission may hold the key to the story here.

I checked around and was told 3 on the tree was available for 2 wheel drive Willys. Still haven't learned if the radio is after market.

I learned to drive and use stick shift in a Willys pickup out in the sandhills, late 50s. Geared so low it was hard to get in trouble. Checked a lot of windmills - fixed a lot of fence. SW

Can't recall if I posted this one before... Got a serious mechanical problem mechanics can't identify or fix? For a modest contribution, boyz from down at the Russian Orthodox Church will arrive to exorcise it or scare the demons away. (I'm not making this up)

For something different, here's a 3 wheel pickup. The payload? I'm guessing not much.

Taking it the other way, here's a FIAT tandem axle pickup. This one was in use as a wine hauler for an Italian vinyard.

That milk truck looks like a turbine spice ship. Must have crashed in the tree row. Beware the probe.

I had a 1949 Willys pickup, Four wheel drive with 3 speed on the floor. It is my understanding the the 2 wheel drive versions were 3 on the tree.
