Default Cab11 C8 Bush Find

I sold off two and then this one comes along. A bush find Cab11 C8 that has weathered well. I'll bring it right into the shop as soon as I get it out of the bush. It was jacked up as a "runner" so I will be interested to see if the engine turns over. Front wheels "free wheel" but I need to get the truck jacked off the blocks to see if the rear wheels turn.

There are two extra seats, what looks like fenders, the manual crank and an open ended boxy item along with a longer curved metal surface. Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what they would be used for? I am going to assume that the steel tubing lattice work was some kind of framework for a tarp - post war?

Will have more info on the extraction as it occurs.
