These 3 little trucks show some different approaches, but none of them look "right"; the proportions are just not pleasing to the eye. The roof is too short on the red one(I know I'd hit my head on the back window if I sat in it, and I'm only 6'1") and on the white and blue ones the bed looks too short with the b-pillar too far back over the wheel opening. The only cure for this might be a longer wheel base and a piece spliced into the 1/4 panel in front of the rear wheel. A whole lot more work for sure. Something else that might help in the proportion department would be to start with a hatchback instead of a wagon; the lower roof line could make it look less "stubby". Not that I'd ever cut one up myself; just dreaming out loud.
