It looks like a TT hiding under all that body work. I think I can see the steering wheel. I wonder what they used it for? :-)

Reminds one of the Toonerville Trolley, St. Marys GA, it ran for 10 years beginning 1928. Body built on a TT chassis converted for rail use.
Later the body became a building, and in 1974 restored back on a '24 TT chassis with wheels. On permanent display in that town today.

The steering wheel is there to hold while you are pressing the pedals in. :-) You don't even notice when you push the pedals in, bet you pull back a little on the steering wheel. Also gives some sense of control when flying around the corners.
