This picture is for sale on Etsy. Anybody have a clue what it could be used for? It seems to be old car parts, electric powered and possibly 2 passenger. Bombsight trainer maybe?

That is a Norden bomb sight training device if I'm not mistaken. My Dad was a bombardier on B-29's. The bombardier "flew" the aircraft in with that sight on the bomb run until he let go of the weapons.

That is a bomb sight tricycle. They made them in various heights and configurations.
