The original make of the parent trap: The one with Brian Keith as the dad.
It has what I think is a 1960 four wheel drive green styleside short bed.....my kids think I'm a nerd because that's my favorite part of the movie. Go figure. Sorry no pictures. Anyone else have kids who caught that one?
O.K. two others and more recent vintage.
The truck in the Sanford and Sons TV show had a '51 in the credits and sometimes in the show. Watch the cable channel TVLand for your daily fix.
The other is the movie "Forrest Gump". Early in the movie Forrest is chased by the bully boys who torment him and he out runs them. They chase him in another '51.
There is a website which features cars in movies, just about every conceiable car in movies is listed. I'll go find the link. Its buried in my favorites somewhere.
This the internet movie car database. They have listings for just about every car ever used in movies. You can search to your hearts content for our favorite trucks. I haven't taken the time to search a lot but you can start by looking a the make listing going to Ford and they have over a hundred pages of listings.
I was wondering if someone would post a bonusbuilt link. I will add one of my favorites already in the bonus built website. Blackboard Jungle (1955)with Glenn Ford. A 1948-50 F2 or F3 delivers some newpapers to a paperstand, the driver is then robbed by some punks in the movie. I hope that never happens to me.
Just watched "Porky's" the other night (OK, not Oscar material) and there is a '51 F-1 with a crappy two-tone paint job prominently featured. TONS of old cars in it, all perfectly restored, just like they were "in the day", right?!
Either goober or gomer on andy griffith drove a 56.
yes, that '56 was driven by both Gomer and Goober. I think it belonged to Wally who owned the "fillin' station." One of the best episodes with the truck is when Barney gives Gomer a ticket for making a U-turn. Gomer then gives Barney a citizens arrest for doing the same. Great show, great truck!
