How'd they get that sidemount tire in there (which doesn't even seem to be mounted to the wheel)?

I think that tire (farm implement tire?) was possibly 'trimmed to fit', and not forced into the well.

I'm thinking it is cut off at the fender and wrapped around like a sidemount cover.

Agree that it's a '31 Cadillac.

That tire looks like a Good-Year Balloon. I bet they put it on the car and then inflated it.
