No ideal why this one was used in a strawberry field other then it was considered a junk car and just used in the field. You may recall the vehicles W. F.

Made it easier to hop in and out of. Much like the watermelon buses in our area (called goats in Florida) of today back then any junk vehicle that would run was used on the farm.
