The subject is a "doodlebug". A doodlebug is a home built tractor made from an old car or pickup. In this case the victim was a 1928 Chevy car, at least the front half was. The frame was cut off behind where the passenger would normally sit and a Model TT Ford truck axle was bolted directly to what was left of the frame, no rear suspension just like a regular farm tractor. As you can see the stock seat has been replaced by a tractor seat. Such conversions were popular during the 1930's for small farms when the great depression robbed many farmers of the income necessary to buy a real tractor, or for larger farms that already had a good tractor a doodlebug was an inexpensive second tractor for hauling stuff around on the farm.
