The truck in the 3rd pic is a Mack tow truck used in the tunnels under the Hudson River in New York - New Jersey.. The short wheelbase allows them to approach an incident in the "wrong" direction, then do a u-turn to take the vehicle(s) out. They have a few of them.

Yes that is a "Little Big Horn" I think there was only one made and it was used (and used up) at the Chrysler Proving grounds in Michigan. Tony Youngblood in Augusta GA USA got his hands on it. First to restore it for Chrysler then when they changed hands again, he ended up owning it. He had a NOS cab to work with. I understand thru the rumor mill that it is finished and he will have it at the ATHS National Show in Lexington KY this May/June??

No! I do not think so?? Dodge built the C800 thru 1000 with the 90 degree lift hood and almost 180 degree swing fenders to fit the short BBC limits. They only built the long fiberglass front tilt hood Longhorn for about 3 years and this short hooded one in your picture was only a prototype..

He is known as "Mr. Dodge" and can accurately answer your questions. He had 2 of the C models at Huntsville AL back in about 2007 or 8 if you have your old ATHS Showtime books.
