You can stash your extra guns and ammo under the benches. You have Jeeves drive while you stand in the back and go for the big kill, watch out for that lion! The hand rails are handy if you happen to lose your balance.

Well you know who made it but it has nothing to do with hunting nor funerals. It is a Rolls.
What was it's use and what is the significance of it?
This was a special vehicle.

These are Rolls-Royce Shooting Brakes. These were the hunting vehicles Rolls made. We call them Woddies or Station Wagons but in Europe they were "Shooting Brakes"

HIT THE BRAKES!!! I FOUND SOMETHING TO SHOOT AT!!!

It's a special Rolls touring vehicle. When you bought a new Rolls they gave you a tour of the factory grounds using this. It was the only one they made since the lawyers saw a potential lawsuit in the making fearing someone would fall out the open back.

Good one but nope. This single purpose vehicale was made in the good old USA.

WE know it's a Rolls. We know there is only one of it's kind.
What purpose did it serve?
It's really a neat answer!!

Well your right and your wrong. This doesn't have anything to do with the Bentley EXP 9 F, that car is a current concept. Nor does it have anything with any current Rolls Pickup Truck concepts of today.
What it is is a Factory made Rolls-Royce Service Truck. The only one Rolls made. Manufactured at the Brewster body works in the U.S.A. in 1920 for the sole purpose of servicing ailing Rolls-Royce at the homes of their owners. It would seem that the Rolls clientele objected to having the neighbors see a lesser quality service vehicle arrive at their homes to do servicing or repairs on their cars. My God! What would the neighbors think!. Not only that, if the Rolls couldn't be repaired on site it would be inconceivable to visualize a Rolls-Royce hanging from the hook of a Ford TT Wrecker and being paraded for all the world to see! This vehicle was equipped with a special tow bar so as the Rolls being towed just looked like it was following to close. The chassis, 37WL, it was built on originally was ordered by Mrs. Guggenhiem ( the mining Guggenheim's) but she changed her mind and Brewster used it to build this truck. Brewster was the authorized Rolls-Royce body builders in North America. Pretty neat, huh?
What interests me the most is the windshield design. I wonder what that was all about?
Here's a great article about this Beauty. http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2012/04...kup-truck.html

496 it's yours.

Well you ruined it by leaving the sign seen on the ground. It's from the Movie Vanishing point and it's a 1970 Dodge Challenger. I only had to google to get the exact year car. It is dirty because I guess they wanted to leave it as is. I was just a kid and even I noticed watching the movie that it was a Camaro they ran into the tractors at the end.

I just was reading the Wiki on it and my brothers Friend Max Balchowski maintained the 5 Challengers used in the movie.

Ok an easy one, what sixties American made car had a windshield that was I believe over an inch lower in height with the convertible than the hardtop. A very noticeable difference it darn near looks like 2 inches to me.
