The vehicles of Young Indy

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but I recently ran across a page on the Internet Movie Car Database (IMCDb) that attempts to identify the many vehicles seen in Young Indy. I thought it was a neat idea at least.

Very cool! Lots of great labors of love out there. Got to add it to our Young Indy source guide!

Very cool page! Thanks for posting the link, MDew.

A couple of immediate notes:

---
unknown (Ch. 15)
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_187215.html
One commentator says: "Autoblinda Lancia I.Z. or made for movie?"

This shot, and several others in "Daredevils of the Desert", was taken from the film "Lion of the Desert"* (which is about the late 1920s-early 1930s Italian campaign in Libya).

For several reasons, this armoured vehicle was ALMOST certainly custom made in the late '70s and meant to represent Lancia/Ansaldo's old Autoblinda.



*Released in 1981 but this film was stalled for a few years. It was ready to come out earlier (c.1979).

1948 GMC Pickup 1-ton (Ch. 20)
http://imcdb.org/vehicle_209253-GMC-Pickup-1948.html

Years ago, I pegged Grey Cloud's** pickup as a 1949 GMC (but I could be wrong).



**I can offer convincing evidence to confirm that the pickup is, indeed, Grey Cloud's (and NOT Indy's).

Raiders112390, you could've asked this question in your other thread (which was active as recently as 2 months ago):

Wyoming, 1950

That said, I gave the info for the truck in this one (last year):

The vehicles of Young Indy

Maybe this thread could be merged with either of those?

I had a feeling there would be a duplicate somewhere.

It just seemed so inevitable.

Thanks for the info about the villain's car, by the way. I knew that it was a Merc (the name and logo are right above the front grille) but didn't know precisely which year or model.

It's a nice looking machine and I like the crimson colour.

IMCDB has it listed specifically as '1949 Mercury Coupe 9CM-72'.

But I wasn't sure if the '72' designation was correct.


Here's
a database of post-war Mercury models.

This is the specific link to the '49 Coupe.

Neither am I. Thanks for the links, though.

Something I just realized: Since "Mystery of the Blues" takes place in 1950 and the GMC is a 1948, it sure has a lot of rust on it for a truck that is supposed to be only 2 years old!

P.S. Thanks for the merge, Moe.
