Maybe, for the times you do need them, the right side seats could be accessed by flip-up panels. A return to the old days of rumble seats. Add a removable bubble canopy, and Bob's your uncle.
They could offer pickup trucks like this. Tandem narrow box.
Can you imagine fabricating something like that? What's crazy is that I actually like the idea...
As for the pickup trucks I've noticed a construction company in my city that has a number of flatbed delivery trucks with a narrowed cab so longer equipment can be carried on the bed alongside the cab.
Hey Darin...up for a road trip to check it out? Meet you in NY
I contacted the e-mail address on the site and got a reply: the site was put up by the guy's son, and I asked him if his dad would be interested in answering questions about the car. He said, yes, he would.
I've already e-mailed him a bunch of questions, but if you've got something you want to know, post it and I'll try to get the answer.
I'm not certain, but I got the impression that the father may not be into computers, so I offered to just phone him if it's easier than playing e-mail relay through his son.
Funny I had emailed him too. Got a reply from his son also...keep me updated on any contact. I would SERIOUSLY be interested in seeing this vehicle! If you talk to him 1st, see if he would be up for a visit. A short documentary/link on this vehicle would make a nice addition to your site...
