Nothing can stop a Highwayman.

— Highwayman's slogan

Highwayman was a car model manufactured by Chryslus Motors in the pre-War United States.

BackgroundEdit

An American icon, the Chryslus Motors Highwayman was once renowned for its high performance and durability. "Nothing can stop a Highwayman" was a phrase familiar to most drivers. The motto still holds true today.

The Highwayman appears to be one of the few cars produced after fossil fuels began to run low in the mid-twenty first century, relying instead on microfusion cells or small energy cells.

Towns in the post-apocalyptic world don't allow motor vehicles on their streets, citing something about aged fuel cells exploding. The Highwayman has to be parked on the outskirts of a town.[1]

A number of compatible options and upgrade parts were made for the model, and some can still be found throughout the wastes and in the hands of local mechanics.

OverviewEdit

The Highwayman has an electric motor that can be charged from a compatible energy source. It has a sizeable trunk and spacious interior able to accommodate at least seven people and even the largest of species (including a super mutant, a robobrain and a deathclaw, all in the same group).

Fallout 2Edit

The Highwayman is the only working vehicle usable by the Chosen One in Fallout 2. It can take the entire Chosen One's party, however large it is. The car can be found in the Den in the possession of Smitty. He can sell it to the Chosen One for $2000 if they can find a replacement part to fix it.

The car's battery can be charged with either microfusion or small energy cells. A full pack of SEC (40) charges it up 20%, a full pack of MFC (50) charges it up 50%. To refuel the car, hover the "interaction" cursor over the Highwayman, use the "bag" icon from the drop-down menu and choose the respective energy cells. The Highwayman has also a trunk where items can be stored, with a sizeable 22 cubic feet capacity.

UpgradesEdit

It can be upgraded throughout the game with several items:

  • Fuel cell regulator from Klamath (found in a wrecked Highwayman after going to the end of the Rat Caves in Trapper Town), doubles mileage. Installed by Smitty.
  • Blower in NCR, improves speed. Installed by Ratch.
  • In the Chop Shop in New Reno, T-Ray can install a speed and trunk space upgrade. He can also install a speed and fuel saving enhancement called the grav plates after completion of the game, obtainable by having the car stolen after blowing up the Enclave Oil Rig, without having it stolen prior.

NotesEdit

Behind the scenesEdit

BugsEdit

  • In towns (e.g. New Reno), the trunk can be separated from the Highwayman and is located in different sections of town.[verified]
  • Leaving the Highwayman on the open map after a random encounter will make the car disappear forever.
    • Entering a cave after a random encounter, then leaving the cave by any other exit than the one first entered will also result in the car vanishing forever.
