I like Beetles and all, but if you watch the video you'll see it could never match the performance of the Ripsaw Tank[-like] drive system.

I like the corrugated paneling on the doors and front quarters.

cRiPpLe_rOoStEr — This is right up your alley, so to speak:

https://jalopnik.com/i-want-a-cheap-...sal-1823793408

I don't know how to link inside the page, look for: Expert 4: David Tracy - This Is Not A Jeep

I my eye it looks like a widened 1954 Willys station wagon with a one-piece windshield, Studebaker Wagoneer taillights and a 1942 Willys grillle.

Do a 180 degree flip on that cap and maybe it would have been worth the effort.

I was looking for the one with a real-deal B-17 canopy grafted on, but this is the closest DuckDuckGo could find. Can you find the thread or the original of this?

The only thing that comes to mind is the Tucker Turret.

The Tucker gun turret was a fast-traversing electrically powered gun turret widely described as having been mounted on World War II bombers and on some ground vehicles and small naval vessels like US Navy PT boats.[1][2][3] American industrialist Preston Tucker first developed the turret for the experimental Tucker armored car in 1938.

Just one prototype was built. Initially, Tucker had planned to sell to the Dutch, who wanted something to traverse muddy ground.

Replica from the movie.

The one I saw was a b&w pic in a Popular Mechanix Illustrated from the 1950s. A high-angle three-quarter front view. It turns out the turret shape on the envelope of the B-17 is no wider than two up with a narrow walk-through. It didn't look narrowed and it was truncated at the radio-operator station. Or thereabouts.

It could/should be kit-bashed in 1/35th scale.

How about a land-speed record car on the back of a steam powered truck, Super Sentinel Rigid Six Wheeler?

Here's the Seagrave Sunbeam (2nd from bottom)

1000hp to crack 200mph? It must need work on the wheelwells.

I debated if this should go in this thread or the aerodynamic thread, but the wide tires and giant hood-scoop out weigh the rear window slope advantages.
