        I actually know where there is (or was?-it was about 5 years ago) another.
        A buddy was working at a junkyard in N.H. He showed me a pic of a car they had. It was a gutted Cortina with the roof cut off. It had a dash plaque saying "Holman+ Moody special vehicle." (And was only $450 in about this shape) I asked a vintage race shop I dealt with if they had any clue what it was. He knew people at Holman+Moody (which is still an active company) and asked about it. Turns out they it was used as pit support vehicles-shuttling around tires-fuel etc.

          not sure why a value at all.

          2300, rwd...
          is there not half billion other models that can do better.

          that curve at rear diff on the floor, it is not meant to be a big engine. Even a subaru has 4 beams spanning the back, and still bends and breaks stuff.

          silliness.

              gawd, I'm not sure I wanna be the dyno sled driver for that! Oh, I guess they vent them up. Nevermind.

              Ah, the truck - I believe Lohnes just ran a story on them, and yes, I think that is what it said.

                In this case, it's not so much what it is, but rather who owned it. Anything HM related will carry a price tag. I think it's pretty cool.

                    Vt-the one I knew of was not too far from you in Claremont, Nh. General auto salvage.
                    With people now into the trend of restoring haulers, (look at the Snake + Mogoose haulers) pit support vehicles can't be too far behind.
