Interesting 1920's Buick tow car in movie.

Watched the movie Speed starring Jimmy Stewart (1936) the other day and spotted what appears to be a 1924/ '27 cut down touring converted into a "tow car". The headlamps are obviously not correct. They actually referred to it as a "tow car" in the movie.  Location was Muroc Dry Lakes, California.

Probably just a modified version of whatever period tow truck was available from a vehicle prop supplier. 

Mark, when I saw this, I thought of your '24 "Roadster Truck"
