Very likely a stacker unit since it has 3-axles and relatively short. The very front of the 2nd level looks like some sleeping space with the window. Pretty nice setup.

For me, the 3.55 rear gear with an M-20 trans is the perfect combo for a muscle car that will be street driven. Quick off the line with the low M-20 first gear, but 3.55 final drive makes highway...
