I think you are right since it is sitting on a 4 wheel drive 2500 series 3/4 ton running gear

I think that is a PEEL 50 - which, believe it or don't, is/was actually a production car (British) with a 50 cc engine. It has been on Top Gear a few times. It fits into a normal elevator in the office building, but has to be pushed back out because it has no reverse gear

First time I saw one was about 4 years B4 Top Gear America was invented, on the original Top Gear.

Jeremy (Clarkson) drove one through London in morning rush hour, and into the BBC TV headquarters building, drove right through the set where they were filming the national news, and then went into an elevator, (the "girl" who does the weather had to push him back out) and then he drove down the hallways and into a meeting room.

He is WAY over 6 feet tall and is NOT a skinny guy!

I think his flat-out speed was about 40 - maybe 50 KPH (25-30 mph) on the street, but it (in theory) gets about a zillion miles per gallon

I've looked at this picture many times over the years and it has always brought a smile to my kisser. I've finally come to the conclusion that the cars a/c works. The streamlined unit on the side and trunk is for the comfort of the family that is living in the car on a hot summer day. Without it, it would get pretty stuffy up on the top bunk in the back bedroom!

All I think of is how wonderful it is to live in a part of the country where you can drive around without air and it doesn't kill you. I have been in places where it is SO HOT and SO HUMID that without it you would be screwed. All I can think of when I see this is some poor bugger had a BIG need for air, and didn't have the bucks to find out what was wrong with the one in the car......probably a blown fuse!

That reminds me of my summer trip to Memphis TN a few years ago, 99 Deg F and 99 % RH, I walked out of the airport and nearly had a heart attack. Thousands of cars on the freeway windows cranked up, idling in trafic, idling eveywhere AC blasting. Not for this cat thank you very much.

Its wide open spaces up here and that is how I like it.

Not knocking Memphis, Beal Street, the BBQ all it was great to see and taste, like to go back some day, maybe in the fall.

Same here Brian! We're lucky to live in areas that AC isn't a must in our hotrods! We get plenty of wet weather that interferes with using the hotrods as much as I'd like, but at least we don't get a lot of 90 and 100 degree temps!

Oh hell yeah! I was in Phoenix Az once and when you got out of the car you about burst into flames! I am not making this up, I walked around a park there at the state capital building and the soles fell off my tennis shoes, NO KIDDING! I had to go buy a new pair of shoes to continue on our vacation.
