There were apparently numerous of these "Bevo" vehicles built by Anheuser-Busch, see the article listed below.

The first on an Overland chassis, then one or two on Pierce chassis, and then later in the 30's one on a V-12 Cadillac chassis.

At least one survives today, the Cadillac based one, not sure if a PA survives or not......

Maybe there's a anchor on the port side or somewhere, the chain could be made to discourage theft. In nautical terminology, this would be called a "double-ender", because the stern is shaped somewhat like the bow.

There are actually two of them. So he can get tail-gaters too. :D

... or, if he was puttering around in the swamp, he could shoot at the whole gator, not just the tails.

I saw at Hershey several years ago, a re-creation (maybe it was a restoration, but it was on a different chassis than original) of one of these on a Cadillac chassis. The actual car can be seen on the website linked above. The red and white striped car.
