I saw that thing in the original listing and figured that was probably to hold 3-4 people hanging on at the rear? Seats 7, transports 11.

The truck was restored in Argentina in 2001, imported to the US in 2004, and now I have it. It supposedly was a an Argentine Army parade vehicle.

The main topic is no longer relevant, so no big deal. I'd love to do that to my S1' but that would be blasphemy.

Looks like it used to be from an Argentinian Boy Scouts group that travelled to Alaska on the SI long time ago, and they left it in the States.

That one is from OR or WA. It's usually at the All British Field Meet in Portland every year. I spoke to the owner. It's a daily driver. Belonged to the Argentinian boyscouts I will post some more detail shots of it. It's got a very interesting history and it's been all over North and South America.
