You are joking, right?
If not the answer is no.

Not that you could buy off the shelf anyhow. I've seen people fit backs to TLR's before but it was a cludge at best.

From wikipedia:

Ward: a division, floor or room of a hospital set aside for a particular class or group of patients, for example a convalescent or psychiatric ward.

Wardflex - a camera for nuts?

In your dreams.

Use it as it was designed to be used!

What Steve Smith said. The Wardflex was a Japanese TLR made by Taiyodo Koki (TKK)/Beauty and rebadged under a store name by Montgomery Ward. Judging by this photo set on Flickr it's a very capable camera:

Get some 120 film and give it a go. There's an online manual available here:

I like to encourage digital people to try film.

Yeah! Whata you know, the old Wardflex can bang out some pretty good pictures. 3 lens elements?
