This photo appeared on Facebook. The rear bed extension is either a one-off customization or a dealer-related modification. Either way, I’ve not seen another one of these.

The photo was take of Joe Smith by his son Albert Smith, Sr. It was posted to FB by Douglas Elliott.

It reminded me that these two unusual, extended 2As were also from Seattle (taken at Arthur Warn’s service station. I’ve never seen another like this or the one at the top.

    Not sure what the gain is of the flat metal going over the spare. Is also up and over on other side, two spares ? If you have a lefty?

    The guy driving it looks pretty happy. I would be too.
    Maybe the extended bed is for increased seating on top of the rear fenders.
