It's not really a monocoque in the usual sense. There is a 3 piece
welded bodyshell, mounted on a ladder frame chassis. That's why it
weighs as much as it does I suppose.
There can only be one sensible reason for a vehicle to have two
chassis , and that is that another vehicle is going to be built on the
same line, without a welded bodyshell....
Still, cannot imagine why you'd need to lift the body to do a service.
