      Type "Streamliner" into the search function, and "Simplified" might get you more.

          Brad, go into General Settings in the Forum Actions tab at the top of this page and edit the Misc. Options setting for Enhanced Attachment Uploading. Turn it to the OFF option and you should be able to post pictures.

                    May have been built this way because of the war.

                    I don't really know but just theorizing that they may have built this way using a portion of a tractor because of World War II. The U.S. Government told companies what they could build and what resources that they could use. Some pretty crazy stuff went on back then.
