    Odd low-slung truck concept for carrying a container, built by Strick.

    Two different prototypes were built.


    The full report can be found here:

    I can imagine that driver's visibility must have been compromised by the design.

    Cab Under

    I found The Pictures from a B√úSSING Cab Under Truck from 1965 in the Net.

    The same principle. No Space for the Driver and mor for the cargo.

    Ive seen this truck before, back then I thought it was a Mercedes Benz, figured the wipers was just a cheap parlor trick for the logo. Definitly wierd looking.
