I see what you're seeing, but I've never seen that before.
What's going on here?

I contacted the seller to ask about that. Reply : "That's the gas tank you're seeing." And the listing was pulled. New listing.

OK!
I figured it out!
The underneath pics are of a different vehicle.
It's a pick-up from the 50s with a straight axle in front.
I wish I'd looked at the other pictures before, but I just went straight to the wood.
