Rare self-propelled baler - 23 mph

Rare NH 178 self-propelled baler on July 30th auction in Wisconsin. Darn old thing goes 23 mph! Check out pic of this beauty (looks like a dragster) and fun discussion:

Someplace I might have a New Holland brochure for this SP baler.  I'll bet that was a dusty ride sitting up there beside the knotters!  Probably almost as bad as the old hand-twist wire tie balers with the seats on either side of the compression chamber.

I believe Claas once made a SP baler, it was on tracks, moslty for baling fibre or flax?? Seemed a bit of a beast in its day.
