Ummm...hmm...I DON'T KNOW! I guess it looks Ford-ish.

Lots of nice teak wood. Why not continue with wood wheels? Interesting platform to build it on.

I don't get it on many different levels!

These would look better

VERY generally it vaguely resembles the shape and proportions.

Based on a 1970 Opel GT chassis? What chassis? The GT was unibody. Don't drive over any bumps too aggressively unless you want to make some toothpicks.

Sell better as a large copy of those cheap wooden toys about a foot long that were more common a time back. Proportionally it has the hood length of an autocar diesel truck if anyone remembers them.

Chances are if you gathered thirty car buffs together and asked them what they thought it represented. A 33 ford truck would not be forthcoming from anyone. In fact I would be at a total loss myself to guess a similarity to anything I have known or seen.
