Saw this on another site.

At least it's being saved, I guess.

Looks like they were trying to cobble together a "rat rod" version of one of these "THINGS" below .... the atrocious MV-1 by AM General.

Is it just me or does not that steering column look a bit far aft than normal?  The angle of the picture should not show exposed wheel  (compared to other trucks) I think it is supposed to be just flush inside at the bottom of the wheel with the door jamb.  These things do not show up everyday, maybe it will get save..at present, it suffers a numerous ills.

This 'splains it a little better....

Maybe the photo above is mirrored?

my guess it's been put on a different chassis as someone suggested.  Look a the tailgate of the red truck pulling the trailer...looks to be correct and not mirrored.

The same guy owns all three. He like to bag 'em and update the running gear. He's getting ready to put glass in the Dodge. Doubt if it's gonna see paint. I'd still rather see it like this than rotting away or going to the crusher.

From the owner; "1956 us mail truck last year before jeeps got the contract. S10 frame 350 chevy now".

The bags and 350 is where the hide gets chopped.

This is my work in progress. 1956 Fargo 1 Ton. it has been in the family since its been new. That garage behind it is where it sat for 30 years. They started it up once or twice a year. It was a grain truck for 30 years till they stopped using it and parked it in the garage. The motor is a 251 out of a combine.

Here are two recent ones of mine from Viva Las Vegas 2017. One solo and one with Audrey Hatchet from Germany. The photographers did take a little liberty with the filters to change the shade of the paint job.
