I was able to find DVDs for "It" (2009) and "This boy's life" at a local library. Put them on hold. Can't get them until the 27th. So I will be looking for my car in them next week.

But I am not too hopeful. Didn't find anything in the Internet Movie Car Data base (IMCDb) for either:

It: http://www.imcdb.org/movie_99864-It.html (at least I recognize street scenes from New Westminster BC where the car lived (and still does).

Boy's life: http://www.imcdb.org/movie.php?id=108330

Apparently this came after the Long Long Trailer. Released in Feb. 56, there was evidence that the vehicle was a 56 Sierra but on second look, based on the front badge and "V", it must have been a 55 Sierra (two-tone dark blue on light blue).

The You-tube link to the movie trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JN7YjIYw5DU

Some info (note the last image - the back cover of the Vol 21 No. 2 of Dodge News that featured the story about Lucy and Desi and the Dodge (wagon) - nice product placement boys).

Ooo Ooo. It got better. In the middle of the same Vol.21, No.2 as the Lucy/Desi article, there is a 56 Sierra in the same colours as I believe the Forever Darling movie 55 Sierra was painted. *REALLY* nice work there boys (the "Mad Men" ad boys)

The 1954 Dodge Coronet in the "Boy's Life" clip is actually a Canadian 1954 Dodge Regent. You can see the Plymouth taillights and the non-wrap around Plymouth rear window. The Pontiac by the curb is a 1953 or 1954 Canadian Pontiac Fleetleader. Red car waiting for the train to go by is a Canadian 1946-48 Dodge D25. No FWL models in site.

Scene was shot at Powell Street and Victoria Drive in East Vancouver. Cannot cross the railway tracks any more due to increased security access to the docks area after 9-11.

"That Night" with Juliet Lewis has her driving a nice red 1958 DeSoto at several points in the movie, and don't forget the 1957 DeSoto in the used-car lot in an absolutely great movie, "The World's Fastest Indian", at about the 53 minute mark. For 1957 DeSoto fans, "Chiefs" is the best, as a main actor (Billy Dee Williams) drives a nice blue Firedome Sportsman 2-dr HT. I have met the folks who own that car, and there are pics of it on my web site at the 2003 National DeSoto Club convention.

There was at least one FL car in the movie (56Chrysler):

Forever Darling came out 9 February 1956 (USA) REF: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049225/

Some mainstream Feb 56 Magazine had this 10" x 13" advert. How convenient. (and I just obsessively bought it)

If you guys get a chance look up a 1980 movie called "Border Cop" starring Telly Savalas and Eddie Albert as border patrol agents on the California/Mexico border. Telly and his partner start out in a circa 1971 Chrysler that gets destroyed. As punishment, supervisor Eddie Albert assigns him a dusty 1959 Dodge four door hardtop (less than thirty minutes into the movie BTW) . The thing is - it's got 59 Plymouth style rear fins. I think it's a '59 Canadian Dodge! If you have Roku you can watch the movie on "My Retro Flix" in their ironically titled "new releases" section otherwise you can watch it for free on Youtube. On Youtube the '59 shows up @ 25:34.

No, it's not a Canadian Dodge.

The side trim shown was used on Plymouth Belvedere (MP1/2-M), Dodge Mayfair (ME1/2-M), Dodge Kingsway Deluxe (ME1/2-M) and DeSoto Diplomat Deluxe (MF1/2-M). The last two were export models built in either Canada or the U.S.. although the Canadian plant built only Belvedere, Kingsway Deluxe and Diplomat Deluxe 4 door sedans for export. The U.S. plant built all Plymouth models as export Plymouth, Kingsway and Diplomat models.

The 1959 M class 4 door hardtop was built in the U.S., but not in Canada, with production totalling 5,713. Thus there never was a 1959 Dodge Mayfair 4 door hardtop or Canadian Belvedere 4 door hardtop.

As the film was shot on the border with Mexico, the car was undoubtedly a Dodge Kingsway Deluxe from Mexico. CKD units were shipped from Detroit to Mexico where Fabricas Auto-Mex, a Mexico City distributor and assembler of Chrysler products, assembled the vehicles. Fabricas Auto-Mex was founded in 1938 and Chrysler International acquired a minority interest in the firm in 1959.

Do not have 1959 Plymouth production broken down by U.S / Canada / Export, but export Kingsway production totalled 5,476 (1,551 6 cyl and 3,925 V8) and export Diplomat production totalled 2,364 (1,309 6 cyl and 1,055 V8).

That Hudson wouldn't stand a chance against a C300. Those cars annihilated all the competition when they came out.

I wonder if the 'Faraday' name is also a play on words...

Faraday being a name associated with electricity in the early days.

The Chrysler Kid - 2013-10-28 5:35 PM
56 Mayfair Convertible in Dr-Dolittle--Million-Dollar-Mutts 2009.


Movie was filmed in the Vancouver area. The left hand shot was taken at Casa Mia on SW Marine Drive - very old house (1920's Spanish revival mansion). I presume the right hand shot is downtown Vancouver.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1080926/ http://www.imcdb.org/movie_1080926-Dr-Dolittle--Million-Dollar-Mutt...



As it happens, I phoned a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy to talk 56 Dodges. I ended up talking (locally) to the owner of that 1956 Mayfair Convertible (Plodge - Belvedere convert with 277 Poly /Powerflite and Dodge front clip, etc).
Except I didn't realize it at the time, he just said he had a 56 Dodge Mayfair Convert supposedly once one of 25 in Canada (back in 1956). He invited me to visit sometime.
When I googled his name to confirm his address, I bumped into several mentions of him and his museum/shop.

Here are a couple of photos from a newletter that featured his shop.
