A Ford wind tunnel test truck,

This is a vehicle constructed for XCOR Aerospace in 2015. It's called the "Trunnel" because it's a wind tunnel truck. It was used to mount various aerodynamic shapes for evaluation in connection with the Lynx Spaceplane.
The Trunnel was used on the long runway at Mojave Spaceport.
