It is a light Green 70-71 D200 Adventurer with a small camper on the back. The truck looks kind of rough for being in a movie that was filmed in 1971. I think they just lightly sprayed some Black paint or primer on certain parts of the truck to make it look worse than it was. :thinking


As old as this thread is..
Watching this movie now, Ernest Borgnine and Bette Davis with said camper special. The camper was a pop top that didn't go over the cab. The front of the the truck carried a bumper mounted 440 Victor BSA that the pair used for a bank job.
Seen this movie before but never paid much attention, decent movie!

I watched Raising Arizona the other day. There is a scene where Nicholas Cage has robbed a convenient store and is picked up in an old truck and is sent flying through the windshield. The truck isn't a Sweptline at first, but when he goes flying through the windshield it is a Sweptline. We rewound the scene and watched it in slow motion several times to make sure. I guess the Swepty was the stunt truck for that particular scene.

Ok, I have gone trough the complete thread. I thought I had posted this but can't find it. There was lots of sweptlines in Lassie (and other mopar products as the show was sponsored).
It is afterall the reason that I wanted to get a mid 60s Dodge pickup that had to be a pie plate long bed :lol:
I used to watch this as a kid, never knew then what trucks they where using but thought it looked really cool and have always wanted one since.

Check this out, all of the shows on youtube:

For sweptlines, check out season 13 and up
Here is one episode from season 13:

And yes, that is my plans for my truck. A USFS replica :dance
