The Perfect TOAD!

I saw this and thought it would look pretty fine behind a Airstream Classic M/H... or indeed towing a Airstream Trailer!

1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt!

How very very cool. I can't say I have ever seen one of these before.

First I thought you were right, and Ok, that explains how they got the steering to work with those fixed front wheel wells!
But I did a search and it seems it was built...
"The first Chrysler Thunderbolt was completed in time for the New York Auto Show. Five more followed with slight trim variations and were shown across the country. All were eventually sold at prices starting at $6,000. "

You'd have to get it a custom trailer that protected it but let ppl see the car... because I'm thinking that Thunderbolt is worth more than my house. In fact $6k in 1941 was probably more than most people's house cost at the time.
