Those car body on truck frames jobs always make me nervous. You don't know how well they did the job. So much can go wrong there.

"Antique" cars commonly had metal panels nailed to a wood frame, Triumph "T" series cars were the most recent large production to use this method AFAIK.

Looks like a project in progress being moved.

Could be a tow truck for his BMW Track Car? A couple of my friends do things like this.
