Just to dispel all the comments on the "box on wheels" and what is an isn't one . . .

There is only ONE vehicle that is honestly a TRUE "box on wheels."
It was made by Volkswagen and lasted three generations of boxness.

Gen 1, the "Splitie"


Gen 2, the "Bay"


And the LAST one . . .
Gen 3, the "Wedge"



The "Others" that kinda count as "boxes on wheels" . . .
- The issue is that the fronts aren't really vertical, thanks to other stuff up there.
VW Transporter/Bus, gen 4


Toyota Van:

The other "boxes on wheels" are the Japanese Kei-class cabover vehicles:

Vehicles simply won't be built that way again (see first post), thanks to the modern crash regulations. Now, they must have more noses in case of front end collisions.
