    Dennis Weaver's car was a mid 60's Plymouth Valiant as I recall. The dashboard was pretty similar to my dad's 65 Fury II. Not certain but I think the truck was a Mack.

    The main truck used was a 1955 Peterbuilt 351 which as anyone that has seen the film knows isn't very well now however there was also a 1960 Pete used for some of the filming which is still going this article in 10-4 Magazine I would love to have a model of this if someone is up to having a go.
