Some of these designs are very cool looking. A couple are cargo planes and I know at least one of these is on the forums already. However, alot of these are very cool that I've never seen before.

Isn't that one of the US-FRG AVS design iterations?

The full patent shows a reference to NX59711.
Aerofiles.com report on this as follows:
Aerocar 1946 = 2pChwM; 130hp Franklin 6AC; span: 30'0" v (est): 128 range (est): 310. Ted Hall. Roadable with demountable wing and twin-boom, twin-tail unit, a development by Hall of his twin-boom auto-plane concepts. It is uncertain if this was ever specifically produced under the Southern banner, or if it was one of Hall's projects in the works, as it was first flown at San Diego CA in 1939. POP: 1 [NX59711], made several test flights, but proved to be underpowered and the project was abandoned in the post-war slump.

Beg's the question wether the Fairchild design was supposed to have demountable tail unit (seemingly the only link to NX59711).
Of course the connection to the C-119 and C-120 designs is very tempting.
 
Multirole Aircraft


ABSTRACT
An aircraft having a plurality of fuselage members, one of which is provided with a replaceable and interchangeable payload carrying section. The replaceable section may be adapted to contain various equipment, ordinance and the like to satisfy different aircraft mission requirements. The replaceable and interchangeable sections are adapted to become an integral part of the fuselage section to which it is attached and permits the payload to be located in proximity to the aircraft's center of gravity such that variations in the equipment that constitutes the payload or discharge of all or part of the payload from the replaceable fuselage section will not substantially alter the aircraft's center of gravity.
