Its interesting that their testers have the white back - why do you think that is? To make it obvious that it is a tester?

This photo of vehicles on the trailer was from a while back. If I remember right we saw some vehicles with this color scheme in Florida (https://www.macheforum.com/site/thr...n-florida-exterior-and-interior-closeups.168/). I think the consensus was that the FL vehicle was white (hence the white lift gate) but had a black wrap on the rest of the body.

Or as manufactures often do for test mules it's just a mish-mosh of parts.

hate to say this straps on back should be going forwards not backwards and straps or chains on front should be pulling towards the back and I wouldn't use straps use chains.

This might be my training in the military but when we moved vehicles you wrapped and locked the hook tight against the axle then put the other end going backwards then use the Chain Bar to sinch it down.

With straps same thing you can wrap around axle form the X and tie it down going backward if in the frongt and then tied down going forward from the back so you are forcing it to not move an inch cause it is going against the tie downs them selvs.

The way Ford and most auto manufacturers transport cars is the cars have thigh down points and 99% of the time these thigh downs are not located on the axles.
