Fast-paced heist b-movie. Only 72 minutes long but it's a gem.

Nice find! I see a 57 Ford Custom police car that doesn't have its own page.

Well you already identified it in the comments. I'd have to use the exact same pic since it's only seen for a second, plus there's a policeman and a Harley Davidson in front of it... :D

New "Regalscope" (and HD) pictures for all pages now available ;)

Some other vehicles I find also worth mentioning (as viewed with my French eyes):

• The police car at the truck weigh station:
[Image: pr-004703-unknown1.jpg] [Image: pr-004728-unknown1.jpg]
(00:47:03 // 00:47:28)

• A kind of toad on wheels, looking like a mosquito among "normal size" American models:
[Image: pr-005600-toad.jpg]
(00:56:00 - The ambulance is identified here)

• A second "golden Cadillac" was scheduled by Eddie's team. This one seems somewhat "younger"?
[Image: pr-005403-cadfleetwood.jpg] [Image: pr-005951-cad.jpg] [Image: pr-010008-cadfleetwood.jpg]
(00:54:03 // 00:59:51 // 01:00:08)

• Another / 2 other police car(s). Given the scene continuity, both are assumed to be the same :)
[Image: pr-010000-unknown2.jpg] [Image: pr-010002-unknown2.jpg]
(01:00:00 // 01:00:02)

• A Chevrolet Advance-Design stake:
[Image: pr-010118-chevyadstake.jpg]
(01:01:18)
Fuel filler pipe seems to be under the bed, so a 1947-48 model year. Single rear wheels and "pickup like" wheel hub caps: most certainly a 125¼" / 3.18 m wheelbase 3609 stake (called Thriftmaster with such a MY).

• A crashed car showing its private parts:
[Image: pr-010929-accident.jpg]
(01:09:29 - Seen also in the Harley-Davidson page)

• A 1950-52 Nash Rambler:
[Image: pr-010948-nashrambler.jpg] [Image: pr-011122-nashrambler.jpg]
(01:09:48 // 01:11:22)

• A 1957 Chevrolet Task-Force 3100:
[Image: pr-011123-tf3100.jpg]
(01:11:23)

• A huge and wonderful "ponton fenders" coupé:
[Image: pr-011127-unknown3.jpg] [Image: pr-011138-unknown3.jpg]
(01:11:27 // 01:11:38)
Does anyone have an idea of the ID of that car?

• The last car / thing Eddie saw on earth:
[Image: pr-011137-eddieslastvision.jpg]
(01:11:37)

Note that he is smashed on a bridge, yet he fell here:
[Image: pr-011136-eddiesfall.jpg]
(01:11:36)
The background bridge is the one were all cars are assumed to be blocked due to the accident. As in a lot of scenes of this movie, there is absolutely no trouble in the scene continuity :D

• The last car of the movie (on the right of the picture):

(01:12:01 - A Studebaker Champion Starlight Coupe)

1956 Studebaker Commander/Champion, a pretty rare sight I'd guess?

Police car in left shot is 1957 Studebaker, but because of chrome beltline molding
can't be a Scotsman. Has black roof.
Right shot police car side detail has white roof, probably Ford.

Good question whether producer obtained "real" police cars or converted/painted civvies for the movie.
If'57 Stude is "real" police car... and movie is shot early '57 or 1956... that's brand-new police stock. Would LAPD be that generous with one of their best cars? And if real car, was police order for one (a "sample" car) or was there a bunch ordered? I've never seen one in film before.
