Real vehicle or made for movie?
It is described as an "Herkimer Battle Jitney", but all what I find on internet seem related to this movie actually...

It looks like a truck one would expect from Batman, 5th Element or GTA2. I love how the future collides with the 30s 40s and 50s :D

Made for movie. I had some information on the chassis that was the basis of this vehicle. It was for auction on ebay a few years back.

I think in a lot of ways it looks like one of the twelve GM Futurliners made for the Parade of Progress back in the 50s. I saw one go for millions during the Barrett Jackson car auctions last year.

I'm interested in any additional specific information about this vehicle. I believe it was a custom one-off made by the prop department. What was the chassis it was built on? It looks a bit like a military 2 1/2 or 5 ton. Is this thing still around, and if so, where?

Saw this while searching online for the herkimer. This is a REAL vehicle. It was developed by the US and UK during WW2, There are only five left in existence, and they are worth about $30 million. here is the link I found this info on ( Link to "blog.hemmings.com" ) I also first saw it in a book in high school, can't remember the name of the book though.

Hi Richard, hi Jason!
Could you post some pictures of the truck's construction and how it looks today? Would make very interesting additional information.
