It is reminiscent of a World War I army tank. It sure would be fun to fix that thing up and pull into a very busy KOA on Labor Day Weekend. Everyone would think that you just arrived from the Planet Zoltar.

I wonder if he has a clear title. Could be a scam.

Would this qualify for a "Cash for Clunkers" trade in?

With a decent hitch and a U-haul style tow dolly mated to a small car facing rearwards I think it would certainly turn heads!

1940 for the 7" round; 1958 for the smaller quad headlights. The rectangular lights were introduced in the 1970s.

However, the lights could have been retrofitted to the unit. The sealed beams were such an improvement in 1940 that I'm sure many people upgraded their older vehicles.

I'll bet someone was pretty proud of themselves when they built that in the back yard.
