Pics of 53 to 56 trucks in TV Shows and movies

Last year I went to this movie site: https://www.imcdb.org/ Here they have cars and trucks in movies. You can search by make of vehicle and by year. I filed all the 53 to 56 Ford trucks I could find. So I will post a few here each day or so. Some of the movies were made South of the Border. Many were box office flops, but not because of the trucks.


A 53 with home made side racks in "48 Students" in 1967


A 53 with an aftermarket cap in "A Patch of Blue" in 1965


A 53 F250 in "The Disorderly Orderly" made in 1964.

I'll tease you with this shot from a famous movie with the best actor that played this character! The truck is not 53-56 but it has the same bed so I saved it. Its a 59.

The original Invasion of the Body Snatchers movie from 1956 had a whole bunch of Ford trucks hauling pods. Pretty cool stuff...

I haven't seen this one yet. It looks like a 53 and a 55. Could the one in the middle be a 54?

I have seen this one and have it in my files.... pretty cool. I like the closeup. Notice the mismatched mirrors. The passenger side mirror is the stock on painted green.

It could be an F500 or F600. F350's have the same bumpers as the F100's. Does anyone know how to tell the difference between F500 and F600 trucks from the front?
Was this on a UK TV show?

Here are my offerings for today. I will try to post one truck for each year 53 thru 56 each day. If someone wants to do the same for 48-52 trucks, go for it!


53 C600 in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, 1963


54 Big Job in Araya, 1959


55 Big Job in Pablo Escobar El Patron del Mal, 2012


56 C600 in San Francisco International, 1970

It's on Amazon Prime set in post war America. Loosely based on Philip K Dick novel if the ***** had won.

Here are a few I have:

These are from We Bought A Zoo.



This is just the hood and fender from Armageddon.


This is from NCIS Season 6, Episode 4. It's not very good because Netflix does a better job of protecting from screen-shots than they used to.


This is from NCIS Season 10, episode 10. Before Netflix screen-shot protection.
