Although... it is and it isn't.
Nor is it this; same story as above.
It's not even this... the coolness-below-the-cool, Texaco-designed, Diamond-T - built, 1500 gal, Doodlebug fuel-truck.
No, the doodlebug at issue is this marvel of redneck ingenuity developed during the depression and reaching its full flower during the war years.
The doodlebug tractor.
Times were tough in the thirties and full-on tractors were out of reach for lots of small farmers.
It had been noted however, that a secondhand Model T or Model A, or Chevy or whatever - could be gotten cheap if you weren't part6icular about looks.
First thing: Cut down the frame. Replace the rear-end with a truck unit. Put in a second transmission, right behind the first and you're good to go.
Further refinements: Duals (pictured), tire-chains and filling the frame rails with concrete for ballast.
This incongruous truck picture is only included to give you an idea what the final 'bug' we'll be looking at would have originally looked like.
This gorgeous jewel is the thing that first introduced me to the whole, doodlebug concept.
I stumbled across it while looking at pictures of ugly trucks. I've got a thing about ugly trucks and my ugly truck has a thing for me... I know it.
But...then I saw this thing.
And what a butt-ugly thing she was/is.
So hold the above image in your mind while you witness what sixty years and a serious bent toward funkiness has lent to...
A 1954 Chevy 6400 with a shortened frame, a Coleman-Conversion front axle, chains on all four - and that boss, seriously-boss... aftermarket, pickup box.
And the Cammo!
I'm left without speech but the best part is: Still powered by the original... wait for it... 235 straight-six.
"The Chevrolet 235-cubic-inch is known as one of the great Chevrolet engines, noted for its power and durability. It was gradually replaced by the third generation 230, beginning in 1963."
