This shows the way it was done before development of Evans loaders . One end of the vehicle is lifted, with wheels removed, and the axle is supported with wooden A-frames. Wood blocking and wire tie-downs are used to prevent shifting.

At first I thought the load was three GM trucks, but there's another tall A-frame in the background, indicating that an  unseen fourth truck is loaded in the rear of the car, with its hood to the B end, and the rear elevated above the  chassis of the next which faces the camera.
